I have nothing but respect for this choice. Hell, ask my wife, I named our first child Jordan after Michael Jordan. So the fact that Lebron James feels the number 23 should be retired throughout the NBA in respect to His Airness gets two thumbs up in my book.

Lebron made it known today that he has officially filed paperwork to switch from No. 23 to No. 6 starting next season.

Now keep in mind, those long-time fans of the game of basketball, No. 6 is no slouch number either – that’s the jersey of the great Bill Russell and Julius “Dr. J” Erving.

What do you think about this? Is it too early for this type of honor to bestowed on Jordan since he is still so heavily involved with active league activities. Chime in folks !
