LeBron James going back to familiar jersey number in Cleveland

LeBron James will go back to wearing jersey No. 23 in Cleveland.

LeBron James will go back to wearing jersey No. 23 in Cleveland. James tweeted "23 it is! It's only right I go back. 2 36 We still family 6."

The tweet included an Instagram post with photos of James holding a No. 23 Cavaliers jersey on draft night, him later in a new version of the Cavs' jersey and one of him in his high school jersey. He wore No. 6 with Miami and with the U.S. Olympic team. He used No. 23 in high school and during seven seasons in Cleveland. About 10 days ago, James turned to social media to help him choose which number he'll wear next season with the Cavaliers. James wrote "6 or 23...." on his Twitter account.
