SAN ANTONIO, TX - JUNE 15: LeBron James #6 of the Miami Heat reacts during Game Five of the 2014 NBA …

LeBron James will go back to wearing jersey No. 23 in his return to Cleveland.

James tweeted ''23 it is! It's only right I go back. 23(equals)6 We still family 6.'' The tweet included an Instagram post with photos of James holding his No. 23 Cavaliers jersey on draft night, him later in a new version of the Cavs' jersey and a one of him in his high school jersey.

James wore No. 6 in four seasons with Miami and with the U.S. Olympic team. He used No. 23 in high school and during seven seasons in Cleveland.

About 10 days ago, James turned to social media to help him choose which number he'll wear next season with the Cavaliers. James wrote ''6 or 23....'' on his Twitter account.
