Wrong Number LBJ

March 2, 2010

In an effort to gain even more media attention LeBron James is changing his jersey number from No.23 to No.6. STOP THE PRESSES! The Earth has even shifted off its axis.

James says he is switching his jersey number because the No.23 is sacred since since it was Michael Jordan’s number. Back in November 2009 James told the Cleveland Plain Dealer this:

“I feel like no NBA player should wear 23. I’m starting a petition, and I’ve got to get everyone in the NBA to sign it. Now, if I’m not going to wear No. 23, then nobody else should be able to wear it.”

So he picks up, Bill Russell’s No.6?

"You see the difference between me and you LeBron, is I make this No.6 look good"- Russell

I guess a 100 point game and 11 championships in 13 seasons isn’t sacred.

LeBron picked the No.6 because it is his Olympic number and he has worn it in Cavs’ practices over the past two years. Sounds like a good excuse Bron Bron. But did you not consider Russell and Wilt? I can’t wait to see what excuse he comes up with when folks call him on selecting the No. 6.
