LeBron announces he’ll wear No. 23 with Cavaliers

Jul 27, 2014, 2:30 PM EST

LeBron James made the decision to return to Cleveland next season, but was undecided as to whether to stick with the number six he wore with the Miami Heat, or return to wearing 23 on his jersey the way he did in his first stint with the Cavaliers.

The choice has apparently been made, and was revealed by James himself via Instagram on Sunday.


The photo was captioned as follows:

“23 it is! It’s only right I go back. 2·3=6 We still family 6. #HomeTeam #StriveForGreatness”

Michael Jordan, the game’s most famous No. 23, has no problem with LeBron’s decision.

It feels right, and more importantly, now the league can begin printing and shipping all those jerseys that flew off the shelves in the early days following LeBron’s initial announcement.

    I’ve said it time and time again….

    I don’t give a flying fruit loop which number you pick Lebron. Whatever makes you play your game go with that.

    No need to make it a spectacle ie: Inside the NBA decision. Pick a damn number and focus on the upcoming season.
