Based on a post by James Friday, he still doesn't know either.
James posed the question "6 or 23?......" on Instagram, along with a split-screen shot of him photoshopped into a Cleveland No. 6 jersey, alongside him in a No. 23 Cavs jersey, which he wore in his first go-around in Cleveland.
Scroll through the responses and you'll see that just about as many want No. 6 as No. 23.
With the Heat, James switched over to the No. 6 -- and won two championships.
Some rumors have circulated that James might for a whole new number, the No. 32, which he wore his freshman year of high school. This post seems to squash that.
Any James apparel available for pre-order on the Cavs' website lists his number as a place-holding "00." You'd have to imagine James will make a decision on the number soon, so those jerseys can be finalized and put in the hands of northeast Ohioans and the many LeBron fans across the country.
