Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James is changing the number of his shirt from number 23 to number 6 next season, sources say The athleteShams Charania and Tim Cato. Anthony Davis is expected to remain number 3.
The change is expected to come after “Space Jam: A New Legacy”, which will be released next month.
James wore a No. 6 T-shirt with the Miami Heat, winning championships in 2012 and ’13. He then returned to No. 23 when he returned to Cleveland and helped the Cavaliers win their first championship in 2016.
When he joined the Lakers, he chose number 23.
Davis was number 23 when he was in the New Orleans Pelicans, where he played for seven seasons, and in his lone season with Kentucky Wildcats, when he won the national championship. When he signed with the Lakers and number 23 was unavailable, he chose number 3.
This is an evolving story. There is more.
