Best Answer

The NBA players can choose any number they want between 00 and 99. However no two players can have the same number on one team. Currently, many players tend to choose lower numbers (under 50). There are very few players with high jersey numbers.

If you are talking about American football, then yes, although in the NFL no two players on a team can have the same number, and in the NCAA no two players on a team can play in a play together if they have the same number.

Are the jersey numbers of hockey players relative to the positions they play?

It is quite rare that you will see forwards wearing numbers 1-8 or defenseman who wear numbers 9-28. Goalies traditionally wear the number 1 or numbers in the 30's, but there are exceptions, as it is not a written rule. In minor hockey and junior hockey teams players are restricted to only a few jersey numbers, usually 1-31. Most defensemen are restricted to numbers 2-8, while the forwards can choose from number 9-29. The numbers 1, 30, and 31 are usually reserved for goaltenders. It's not related to their positions as it is in football. Players can wear any number from 1-98 nowadays.
