James lebron“The iconic # 23 is gone … the Los Angeles Lakers superstar officially returns to # 6 for the start of next season.
So … why the change ?? Bron first decided to offer # 23 to Anthony davis when he joined the Lakers in 2019 … and said he would wear the number 6 – a number he wore with the Miami Heat and Team USA – instead.
Nike famous veto trading in numbers … saying he would lose A LOT too much money if the guys traded so they put the trade on ice for a bit.
But, this is where things get tricky – Athleticism reports that AD is NOT taking LeBron’s number 23 and will keep number 3… which means James’s move is a bit of a headache.
There’s a potential reason why LBJ wants to go through with the change – James wears number 6 in the new movie “Space Jam: A New Legacy”… so maybe he wants the movie to be. as REAL as possible ??
Either way, expect LBJ’s new look to be at the top of NBA jersey sales again next year … because everyone will have to update this # 6.
