Well, 2 times 3 is 6.
LeBron James has multiplied his No. 23 to come up with his new number for next season – 6. Actually, I don’t know how he came up with No. 6 for his new number, but James did wear it in the 2008 Summer Olympics.
The change is in part with him believing the NBA should league-wide retire the No. 23 worn by who most consider the greatest basketball player ever – Michael Jordan.
Got to give James credit on this one. I’ve talked to people about this for a long time, but for a megastar athlete to change his number is big.
Considering his idol was Jordan, the change is even more impressive. It will go into effect next season.
One last thing. Wonder how many No. 6 James jerseys will get sold the first week they hit the shelves especially if he’s with a new team?
