Lebron James Retires Jersey Number | The Sports Report Girl

Lebron James Sucking Up To Michael Jordan

After putting on a show for the great one Thursday night in Miami, Lebron James made the surprise announcement that he, on a personal level, would be retiring his number 23 jersey next season. The change, James said, was purely to honor the memory of Michael Jordan… his favorite player growing up.

Not only did Lebron say he would be switching numbers (no matter where he plays next year) but that he would be starting a petition amongst all NBA players currently wearing jersey’s with the number 23 to do the same. After all, if the chosen one isn’t going to wear Jordan’s old number, then why should anyone else?

Ordinarily I would think this is a great idea… honoring the memory of our sports legends is important. But to be perfectly honest, I still have a bad taste in my mouth from Jordan’s Hall of Fame induction speech. That lack of humility makes me not really care about his legacy.

Frankly, I hope the NBA doesn’t retire the number 23… at least not until Jordan starts acting a little less like a douche bag!
