Michael Jordan says he's 'cool' with LeBron James wearing No. 23
LeBron James goes back to his No. 23 and his Airness sees no problem with it.
Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James doesn't see a problem with going back to No. 23 as his jersey number after giving it up to honor Michael Jordan five years ago. And apparently, neither does MJ. Jordan texted ESPN:
"I'm cool with it,'' Jordan told ESPN.com via text message Monday morning. "I don't own a number.''
There's going to be outrage over it regardless, because, I mean, that's kind of what we do as a sports media society. But if Jordan doesn't mind it, and James, who has a pretty good sense and respect for NBA history, doesn't see a problem with it, then there are pretty good reasons to ask why we should care.
Jordan doesn't own a number. However, you can bet if he did, it would be marketed and branded and sold for hundreds of dollars per pair.
