LeBron James Will Wear Number 23 With The Cleveland Cavaliers

LeBron James has made his second important decision of the offseason today, announcing on Instagram that he will once again be wearing number 23 in Cleveland.

“23 it is! It’s only right I go back. 2·3=6 We still family 6. #HomeTeam #StriveForGreatness”

LeBron James wore number 23 while in Cleveland from 2003-2010. He made the switch to number 6, his Olympic number, after leaving for the Miami Heat.

The decision to go back to number 23 shocked a lot of people. Especially since, in 2010, LeBron James told Craig Sager that “no guy in the NBA should ever wear 23”.

    this is why people don’t like Lebron. He flip flopped again and is SO afraid of what people think of him…he doesn’t get it. You can’t mess with history. He did the right think going back to Cleveland but he blew it by saying this….
