Lebron Submits Number Change

Via Cleveland Plain Dealer

“…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.
