Seeing Lebron James in No. 6 jersey has become somewhat standard for James. This is Lebron’s Team USA number which James has said was the best experience of his career. He has been spotted at the Q with No.6 as well during practices and fans were puzzled a bit when James warmed up for the game wearing a jersey with the No.6 in a late December game.
Often when he gives autographed jerseys as gifts to friends or special causes these days, he’ll sign an Olympic No. 6 jersey.
So indeed, he is No. 23, but No. 6 is part of him too. Someday, there’s a chance it could be his number all the time. ” Brian Windhorst said.
“It’s interesting to think about. I feel like 6 is my number, too,” James said about the prospect of switching.
“If the NBA retired 23 because of Michael (Jordan) like baseball did with Jackie Robinson (42), I would definitely switch it. Maybe I would someday, we’ll see.”
