LeBron James will change his jersey number from No. 23 back to No. 6 next season, The Athletic’s Shams Charania and Tim Cato reported.
The Los Angeles Lakers star will reportedly make the change following the release of “Space Jam: A New Legacy,” which hits theaters in July.
Anthony Davis will keep his No. 3 jersey, per the report. Davis wore No. 23 with the New Orleans Pelicans before joining the Lakers.
James last wore the new number while with the Miami Heat and won titles in 2012 and 2013. When he returned to play for the Cleveland Cavaliers, he returned to No. 23. The franchise won its first title with James’ leadership in 2016. He has only worn No. 23 with the Lakers, who he joined in the 2018 offseason.
“Space Jam: A New Legacy” released a second trailer for the movie on Wednesday.
