LeBron James will change his jersey number for next year in Los Angeles in order to shake off the heartbreak of the Lakers’ playoff defeat.
In some ways, LeBron James is reuniting with his history.
The Lakers star will alter his jersey number from No. 23 back to No. 6 for the 2021-22 season. The revelation was first reported by The Athletic’s Shams Charania and Tim Cato, however it may not be formally announced until until Space Jam: A New Legacy is released in July.
