2. Khalid El-Amin (UConn)

Where Is The Shirt Now? Khalid’s shirt was passed down among UConn players until it it fell into the possession of Jeremy Lamb who took the shirt with him to Houston. El-Amin’s undershirt was the final piece included to complete the James Harden trade. It’s not widely known outside of NBA circles, but Thunder GM Sam Presti is a collector of El-Amin memorabilia and could not turn down the opportunity to acquire his hallowed undershirt despite giving up James Harden for 30 cents on the dollar.

3. Scotty Thurman (Arkansas)

Where Is The Shirt Now? The rumor out there is that Scotty’s shirt was last scene being clutched by a deranged Nolan Richardson shuffling around the streets of Panama while repeating the phrases “my precious” and “I’m the best thing about this university.”

5. Marcus Camby (UMass)$daE2N3K4ZzOUsqbU5sYtoyRfQf6Bku7UwkZ4Z_ZRMWCsjLu883Ygn4B49Lvm9bPe2QeMKQdVeZmXF$9l$4uCZ8QDXhaHEp3rvzXRJFdy0KqPHLoMevcTLo3h8xh70Y6N_U_CryOsw6FTO

Where Is The Shirt Now? Marcus’ undershirt still resides in his dresser. However the shirt is to this day still barred from stepping foot on the UMass campus after Calipari and Camby named Camby’s undershirt as the main beneficiary of cash bribes during the UMass basketball scandal. The NCAA bought the story and Calipari still laughs about it with his buddies.

6. Charles O’Bannon (UCLA)

Where Is The Shirt Now? O’Bannon’s shirt parted ways with his owner shortly after O’Bannon’s basketball career ended and has since gone on to have a career as a show runner. His most recent projects were the Anthony Anderson show Guys With Kids and the short lived Don’t Trust the B—- in Apt 23.

8. Larry Johnson (UNLV)

Where Is The Shirt Now? Larry gifted his shirt to his beloved Coach Tark who has turned it into one of the towels he would famously hang onto and bite when stressed out during basketball games. Only now Tark spends his time stressing out over Mahjong tiles instead of basketball

9. Patrick Ewing (Georgetown)

Where Is The Shirt Now? Patrick’s shirt is still in evidence lock up down in Atlanta after being submitted for evidence during the Gold Club trial. Patrick was wearing the shirt when according to him, “The girls danced, started fondling me, I got aroused, they performed oral sex. I hung around a little bit and talked to them, then I left.”

11. Harold Miner (USC)

Where Is The Shirt Now? Seeing the writing on the wall with regard to Harold’s NBA career his undershirt left Harold and returned to Hollywood where the shirt was worn in a handful of well known movies. Harold’s undershirt’s credits include Failure To Launch, Life As We Know It, and the Arthur reboot. Recently though the shirt is rumored to have scored the role as the first shirt taken off by Channing Tatum in Magic Mike 2.

12. Sam Cassell (Florida State)

Where Is The Shirt Now? Sam’s shirt passed through the Stargate 8 years ago to return to Sam’s home planet of Duende 6 which is part of the Sombrero Galaxy. The shirt is said to be on display at the planet’s history museum as a symbol of Sam’s successful mission to earth where he was able to assimilate with us humans.
