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.
