List RulesOnly athletes who wore 0 or 00 for at least one professional season

The top athletes who wore 0 as their jersey tried to prove that their performances would be the opposite of their number. It is a bold move to choose zero, but it is a fun number that makes an athlete stand out with ease at first glance. Athletes in various sports like football, basketball, hockey and baseball have all worn the 0 on their back with pride. 

Players like Robert Parish and Damian Lillard have helped make the 0 cool in the NBA, while Carmelo Anthony has agreed to wear the #00 with the Trail Blazers. Jim Otto in the NFL and Jack Clark in MLB join NHL stars like Neil Sheehy and John Davidson in wearing the famous 0 on their jerseys. Meanwhile, in the soccer world, Hicham Zerouali became synonymous with the number, to the point that it became his nickname.

So vote up the best overall athletes to find success while wearing the jersey number 0 or 00. Each player had his own way of impacting the sport, but only the top ones deserve to rank high. Help us decide the best of all the athletes to wear 0 as their official jersey number.
