He didn't. He wore #23. He also wore #45 when he played minor league Baseball for the Birmingham Barons. When he returned to the NBA he wore #45 briefly but eventually went back to #23.
because that how old he was when he started playing
michal Jordan did not choose the #23 the bulls choose it for him, most rookies in any major league sport do not have control over what number they will wear.
jordans older brother Larry use to wear the #45, Jordan wanting to be like his brother wanted to wear the same number which was already taken. so he split the number in half which is 22 1/2. there is no such number in basketball so he took 23.
Jordan Henderson wears number 14 at Liverpool FC.
Michel Vorm wore jersey number 22 in the 2014 FIFA World Cup.
no he wear number 41 in high school
his dad was number 9
Michael Jordan had always wanted to wear #45 because it was his brother Larry's favorite number, and he idolized him.
In honor of Michael Jordan.
Because that's the number he wanted. Jordan wanted to prove he was at least half as good as his brother Larry, who wore #45 in high school, and continuously beat Michael in one on one as children.
He looked up to Micheal Jordan He is number 23 ;)
You've confused Carson Palmer with his younger brother Jordan. Jordan Palmer wears number five.
