Jordan OK with LeBron wearing No. 23

Michael Jordan has weighed in on LeBron James announcing that he will again wear No. 23 for the Cleveland Cavaliers.

“I’m cool with it,” Jordan told ESPN. “I don’t own a number.”

James, who is returning to the Cavaliers after four seasons with the Miami Heat, wore the iconic Jordan number during his first seven seasons with Cleveland, but wore No. 6 while with the Heat.

James announced his decision to wear No. 23 again via Instagram and Twitter on Sunday.

“23 it is! It’s only right I go back. 2·3=6 We still family 6. #HomeTeam #StriveForGreatness,” James tweeted with an Instagram photo.
