Best Answer

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.
