LeBron James has chosen a new uniform number

After some careful, crowd-sourced consideration, it appears as if new Cleveland Cavaliers small forward will choose the No. 23 for his next uniform. James announced as much on Twitter during Sunday afternoon:

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.
