James was wearing No. 23 in his first season in L.A., but that happened to be the same sweater that 26-year-old Davis wore during his seven-year career.

That number, which was famous for Michael Jordan, was first carried by a teenager James during his days in Akron & # 39; s St. Vincent-St. Mary High School. James then held the jersey when he was taken by the Cleveland Cavaliers with the first-overall pick of the 2003 NBA Draft – when Davis was only 10 – but the quadruple NBA MVP took No. 6 during his four-year stint with the Miami Heat.

James went back to number 23 when he returned to Cleveland in 2014.

It is not yet clear which number James will wear next season, but fans quickly knew James' dominance in Miami with the number 6 when he reached the NBA final four times and won his first two national titles.

& # 39; The competition is now in trouble, no. 6 LeBron comes back & # 39 ;, a Twitter user wrote while & # 39; 6 LeBron & # 39; trended on the social media platform.

James was technically still in his 20s the last time he was No. 6 wore. Although he struggled with injuries during his disappointing first season with the Lakers in 2018-19, the 34-year-old still averaged 27.4 points and 8.5 rebounds per game.
