Jersey Numbers 22-15 and the reason for Number 7
As jersey number, he was wearing 22 in High School and 15 in College. He kept wearing 15 in Denver, but when he arrived to New York, he chose number 7 as 15 was retired in the Knicks franchise (dedicted to Earl “The Pearl” Monroe and Dick McGuire). The reason for 7 is the birthday of his son is March 7, 2007 and number 7 comes as the result for the subtraction of his former jersey number 15 from his other former number, 22.
His self-titled Melo sandwich.
