    Default LeBron to wear to #6 in 2010

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    Out of respect for the greatest basketball player of all-time and/or in an effort to increase merchandising sales Cavaliers star [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] for No. 6 after this season.LeBron made the comments following Thursday night's win in Miami. Jordan, as you might have guessed, was in attendance to subtly remind the world about his [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]. Do these guys have timing or what?
    "I just think what Michael Jordan has done for the game has to be recognized some way soon," James said. "There would be no [Only registered and activated users can see links. ][Only registered and activated users can see links. ], no [Only registered and activated users can see links. ][Only registered and activated users can see links. ], no [Only registered and activated users can see links. ][Only registered and activated users can see links. ] if there wasn't Michael Jordan first.
    "He can't get the logo, and if he can't, something has to be done. I feel like no NBA player should wear 23. I'm starting a petition, and I've got to get everyone in the NBA to sign it. Now, if I'm not going to wear No. 23, then nobody else should be able to wear it."
    It shouldn't take much for James to convince his peers. With an assist from [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], Tom Ziller at the FanHouse [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] currently wearing No. 23 in the league. The list:
    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ][Only registered and activated users can see links. ], [Only registered and activated users can see links. ][Only registered and activated users can see links. ], [Only registered and activated users can see links. ][Only registered and activated users can see links. ] (who has the gall to wear it in New York! New York!), [Only registered and activated users can see links. ][Only registered and activated users can see links. ], [Only registered and activated users can see links. ][Only registered and activated users can see links. ], Wes Matthews, [Only registered and activated users can see links. ][Only registered and activated users can see links. ], [Only registered and activated users can see links. ][Only registered and activated users can see links. ], [Only registered and activated users can see links. ][Only registered and activated users can see links. ], [Only registered and activated users can see links. ][Only registered and activated users can see links. ] and [Only registered and activated users can see links. ][Only registered and activated users can see links. ].
    Stars switching numbers is hardly unprecedented in the NBA. In 2006, Kobe Bryant switched his No. 8 for No. 24 and sold a few zillion jerseys in the process. When Jordan came out of his first retirement, after the Bulls had sent No. 23 to the rafters, he wore No. 45 for 22 games before switching back.
    Why No. 6? Well, [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]. The No. 6 was James' Olympic number, Julius Erving, who rocked it, is second-favorite player ever, and LBJ's first child was born on Oct. 6; his second in June (the sixth month).
    That's right; LeBron James, numerologist.

    Just a marketing tool to cause controversy so he can sell his jersey.

    Is this a sign he's staying in Cleveland? Because if he went to another team, he'd be the top selling jersey regardless. But if he's with CLE...not so much.

    Damn....

    Now this idiot of Lebron is acting like he's bigger than the game and commissioner. He should just **** to **** off for at least a year. Who gives a **** what he thinks. Same thing I thought when the punk of David Ortiz was analyzing steroids issues all over spring training this year. The to find himself being a steroid user himself. This is getting ridiculous with athletes taking too much of a grand stand on matters that they got power over.

    Pat Riley once said every franchise should retire the number 23 so that no one could wear it again. By comparison this isn't as toolish.

    Jordan was the greatest ever, but no one should be bigger than the game.

    seriously..and the greatest ever? I'd still pick Wilt Chamberlain in his prime over Jordan in his prime. Jordan wouldn't be able to get near the paint without getting stuffed or knocked on his ass.
