It was rtired as a sign of respect in the end of the year when Michael Jordan retired from the Chicago Bulls.
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.
he had nothing to prove anymore to anybody
It means no one else on that team can wear that number - example: No one on the Chicago Bulls team can ever wear Michael Jordan's number 23.
because riley loves him.
