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.
no . remember lebron james wore the number 23. he decided to give the number up and wear the number 6 on the heat out of respect
When he retired the first time he also retired the number 23. So when he came back the number 23 was retired so he wore 45. Later he wore number 23 and paid a fine to wear it.
LeBron James was number 23 until he got traded to the Miami Heat, he changed it to number 6.
The Miami HEAT were founded in the year 1988, making the franchise 23 years old as of the year 2011.
Jake Marisnick is number 23 on the Miami Marlins.
Mike Gillislee is number 23 on the Miami Dolphins.
Michael Jordan used to be # 23 and his number is retired...so no one has it right now...I think.
No one is because they retired the number 23 on the Bulls. So no one on the Chicago Bulls can have that number.
