I can’t believe we’re spending so much time talking about a uniform number, but that’s the case when it involves two of the greatest basketball players of all time. LeBron finally announced another decision over the past few days. He said that he would abandon the number six that he made famous in Miami and bring back the 23 that he wore from the time he was a kid in high school until he left Cleveland the first time. And His Airness, Michael Jordan, doesn’t have an issue with it.
“I’m cool with it,” Jordan told ESPN.com via text message Monday morning. “I don’t own a number.”
I swear the NBA is just the world’s longest running reality TV show with the most cast members ever. Whether we’re talking about free agency, the draft, or even in-season team dynamics, it’s got all the same ups and downs as one of the Housewives shows. The fact that we get to call it a sport is pure technicality at this point. Vince McMahon thinks there’s truly unbelievable amounts of drama in the NBA by this point.
It was much easier to complain and snipe about it before the Cavaliers were back at the center of the basketball universe.
