Yes, when LeBron James was a kid he admired the great Michael Jordan. Now he has changed his number to number 6 for respect of Michael Jordan's number. The NBA was going to say no one will ever be allowed to wear number 23 but they did not, but Lebron James still changed his number for respect to Michael Jordan.
Michael Jordan's signature number is 23.
The person that inspired Lebron to play basketball is Michael Jordan because he is amazing. Lebron also took his number which is 23.
He was number 9. He was always 9 in the Olympics
I would say that its 23 because many great players have had that number; Michael Jordan, LeBron James, etc.
It was rtired as a sign of respect in the end of the year when Michael Jordan retired from the Chicago Bulls.
Michael Jordan was #23,45,and 12 on the Chicago bulls. He was 23 on the Washington wizards, and his U.S.A dream team number was 9
Michael Jordan's number was 23, for olympic dream team he was worn 9 and after the retirement he used 45 for quite some time..
If by ''romodel'' you mean role-model, LeBron James' role-model is Michael Jordan. Hence the number he wears.
yes it is retired throughout the NBA. That's why LeBron changed his number
He was a basketball player for the Chicago Bull and was number 23 and is now the owner of a basketball team.
He wanted Michael Jordan's number (which is 23) to be retired throughout the entire NBA
He wore the numbers 23 primarily, 9 for USA in Olympics, 45 and 12.
Right now its LeBron James but over all its Michael Jordan
LeBron has decided to wear the number 6 jersey as he feels that in respect, no one should wear the number 23 that was worn by the great Michael Jordan
LEBRON JAMES! and Michael Jordan used to but lebron is better LeBron moved to 6 and now Shelden Williams wears 23 and MJ was 20 times better than LeBron. Jason Richardson of the Orlando Magic, Louis Williams of the 76ers, and Marcus Camby also wear 23.
Because #23 is retired in any team in the NBA for Michael Jordan. And LeBron James is an Illuminati. Illuminati is when people obeys to the devil to make them selves better people. And before each game starts, LeBron does the devil horns, the pyramid, and the 666 with his fingers after every national anthem. The 6 is because its part of the 666 thing. LeBron James is now obeying to the devil to make himself for famous and rich, and that is the exact reason why he has no rings at all. The money that you buy from the LeBron James jersey of the Miami Heat, that money will go to LeBron James and hes going to continue becoming rich. *Its OKAY to watch basketball, you can still be a fan and stuff, just try not doing anything of what LeBron James does because its his choice if he wants to go to heavin or hell. Tip: God loves everybody equaly even if you do bad things but God can give you a second chance. Just pray to him and tell him that you are sorry for all the sins you did. Actually why LeBron changed his number to 6 is when he was in the Olympics he wore number 9 and then that year they lost. they flip flopped wade had 6 lebron had 9 they changed and then wade has 9 and lebron has 6. that year when they changed they won the Olympics. He thinks that if he uses number 6 he might win like he did in the Olympics.
LeBron James is going to wear number 6 next year in honor of Michael Jordan.
LeBron James is number 6 for Miami Heat.
LeBron James is number 6 on the Miami Heat.
LeBron James is changing his number to number 6 in honor of a old celtics player.

Yes! Lebron is number 1.
23, because that's how many kids he's had.......
Bill Russell ruled he won 11 rings in 13 years.no other athlete in any sport has 11 rings.think about that all you Michael Jordan fans.he only has 6.Russell is not only the greatest Celtic he"s the greatest of all time. And to think that lebron James wanted to retire jordans #23.if your going to retire a number it has to be #6 bill russells # i rest my case.end of story.
