NBA star LeBron James is changing his number back to 6.
The Los Angeles player wore the number 6 when he played for the Miami Heat for four years. LeBron went back to No. 23 when he returned to Cleveland from 2003-10. In 2019, LeBron said he chose the number because of Michael Jordan. LeBron said, “I wear the No. 23 for the great Michael Jordan.”
He kept the same No. 23 when he joined the Lakers. The No. switch is set to happen after his Space Jam 2: A New Legacy appearance during the summer.
