LeBron James to Wear No. 23 for Cavaliers

Sun, 27 Jul 2014 22:04:18 +0000

Mike Ehrmann/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- LeBron James tweeted on Sunday that he'll go back to wearing No. 23 this season as he makes his return to Cleveland.

When James left Cleveland in 2010, fans burned his No. 23 jersey, but now they'll have to go out and buy another one.

"23 it is! It's only right I go back. 2·3=6 We still family 6. #HomeTeam #StriveForGreatness," James tweeted.

James switched to his Olympic No. 6 with the Miami Heat, but decided to switch back after the league did not retire the number for Michael Jordan.

James has led the league jersey sales for six of the 11 seasons he's played in the NBA.
