    Doesn't seem like a big deal, but if you remember, before he went to the Heat, he changed his number from 23 to 6 and petitioned hard for no player to ever rock the 23 out of respect to Michael Jordan. I can't say I disagree. It was a nice argument. Anyway, now he's considering going back to 23. I'm not a LeBron hater, but this just kind of annoys me. He really comes off as someone who can never be held to his word. That's just my opinion.

    I rooted for him to win in Miami. It made sense - he gave Cleveland 7 years, they never put a championship team around him, so he left as a free agent which was his right.

    Now, Dan Gilbert gets to reap the benefits of the best player in basketball after that because, in my opinion, LeBron has no backbone and no fortitude to stand up on his principles and not waver. As someone who refuses to stand down against things that I don't believe in, I can't identify with LeBron James anymore.

    If he goes back to 23 after changing to 6 out of respect for Michael Jordan - AND saying that the number 23 should be retired league-wide - I'll pretty much be over supporting him just like you. He won't be able to be held to his word, and I would NOT be shocked if after this 2 year deal with Cleveland he signed somewhere else.
