Should NBA retire Jordan’s 23?

SHARE Should NBA retire Jordan’s 23?

LeBron James said Thursday that Michael Jordan’s No. 23 should be retired league wide and that he was considering changing next season to No. 6.

“I just think what Michael Jordan has done for the game has to be recognized some way soon.” James said after the Cleveland Cavaliers beat the Heat in Miami with Jordan sitting courtside. “There would be no LeBron James, no Kobe Bryant, Dwyane Wade if there wasn’t Michael Jordan first.

“He can’t get the logo, and if he can’t, something has to be done. I feel like no NBA player should wear 23. I’m starting a petition, and I’ve got to get everyone in the NBA to sign it. Now, if I’m not going to wear No. 23, then nobody else should be able to wear it.”

Right now, Jordan’s 23 is retired by the Bulls and the Heat. The NBA doesn’t have any number retired league wide. Should 23, in honor of Jordan, be the first? Leave your comments below.
