“…LeBron James told the Cleveland Plain Dealer that he has filed the necessary paperwork with the NBA to change his jersey number from 23 to 6 next season.”I’ve done it,” James said. “I already sent it in. I’m going to be number 6.”
James’ decision may prompt another round of speculation about the superstar’s impending free-agency. The number on his jersey may be different but what about the city name?
If James were to sign with a team other than the Cavs this off-season, he would not need to submit an application to switch jersey numbers. The request James filed is only needed if he remains in Cleveland next season.
