I know that two multiplied by three equals six, but I genuinely have no idea what this tweet means. Maybe it’s a code that is only given to people that can get rim on a 10-foot hoop.
Unfamiliar maths aside, James’ choice does call into question the nationally televised statement he made nearly a half-decade ago:
Apparently it’s cool to wear Michael Jordan’s number now because, well, two times three equals six.
