Everyone remembers Thunder Dan Majerle’s time in Phoenix (he spent eight seasons there) but in between there and his time with the Miami Heat he had a one year pit stop with the Cleveland Cavaliers. Because most people didn’t even know that he played in Cleveland the coolness factor of this jersey is greatly elevated.

Dan Majerle Cleveland Cavs jersey

Thunder Dan Majerle was comparable to fellow white dunker Rex Chapman. At his best, which was in 91′-92′, Majerle gave the Suns 17.3 ppg, 5.9 boards, 3.3 dimes, 1.6 steals, on 47% shooting. For his career he put in 11.4 ppg, 4.5 boards, and 2.9 dimes. To put that into perspective, Rex Chapman’s final stat line looked like this: 14.6 ppg, 2.5 boards, and 2.7 dimes.

Thunder Dan was drafted in the first round by the Phoenix Suns out of Central Michigan University. At the time Suns fans weren’t a fan of the pick and promptly booed him. Thunder Dan proved that the majority of fans are idiots as he had a stellar career with the Suns and in 2003 was inducted to the Suns Ring of Honor.

For Hoopsters rocking a jersey of any team that Thunder Dan was on will get you mad respect. You are most likely to see a Phoenix Suns one since that’s where he spent the majority of his time. However, rocking this Cleveland Cavaliers jersey will take your Hoopsterness to a whole new level. Wearing a one and done jersey is definitely a way to make yourself stand out from the crowd.

Here’s a video of Thunder Dan catching a ground rule double at a Diamondbacks game and giving a fantastic reaction:
