LeBron and the #23

I think he's right about retiring 23. The problem I have with him saying it is why was he wearing that number for so long anyways? He is trying to make himself know as "the king" so why would he pick the best player of all times number? I didn't like it when he first came into the league I just think if you want to be great and go down as a great player you should want to make your own name with your own number. If Kobe had chose to be 23 people would be all over him saying he's trying to be Jordan and so on, but LeBron gets a pass. He still biting off Dr. J by saying 1 of the reasons he wants to wear 6 is because he was his second favorite player I love LeBrons game alot but I think he should choose his own number so when he retires people can say thats LeBrons number kinda like Kobe with "8" until he changed it.

i dont.. should they also

i dont.. should they also retire #13 (WILT)... or Russell (#6)..... Dr J? The Big O?..... The Bulls should retire 23 only (which they have)... I know the heat have also but like stan van gundy stated.. soon we'll have guys wearing triple digit #'s...

they were all great but

they were all great but jordan was different than them. maybe they shouldnt retire the number but players that are all star wing players shouldnt wear the number just because they will never be remembered for the number. lebron shouldnt have ever chose to wear 23 and nike should have more respect than to ever put the number 23 on any shoe thats not jordans!

Its stupid to retire it all over

First off I am a big bulls fan and I love Michael Jordan but i dont think that his number should be retired all over the league thats retarded its not like hes Jackie Robinson he didnt break the basketball color barrier he is arguably greatest basketball player ever but that honor is not deserving of him. They should just have his number retired in chicago where he played maybe in washington because he did play there too in his later years other than that I dont think so. I think they should just make an award for him since there is always a debate on MVP every year make a Michael Jordan Award and give it out every year.
