Best Answer

The number 23 has been retired in honor of Michael Jordan by the Chicago Bulls and the Miami Heat. While Jordan never played for the Heat, his number was honored by Miami by General Manager Pat Riley. The Washington Wizards, for whom Jordan played in 2001-2003, have unofficially retired his number and have not reissued it since Jordan wore it for his final game.
