Is LeBron James bringing back the No. 6 jersey?
On Thursday, Chris Haynes reported that LeBron will give up his No. 23 to Anthony Davis next season in LA, and he's already starting to don his former Miami Heat number on the set of "Space Jam 2" according to the latest on-set photos.

LeBron and AD seem to have a friendly agreement in place, as Davis recently gave up his $4 million trade kicker to help the Lakers open up a max contract slot, and was additionally given a role in the "Space Jam" sequel alongside James. This all looks like a fair trade for all parties, especially for the Los Angeles Lakers as a team, who now have enough money to chase a guy like Jimmy Butler or even Kawhi Leonard.

If 2019-20 give us the No. 6 LeBron we all remember, the league might be in trouble. In his time with the Miami Heat, James averaged 26.9 points per game, with 7.6 rebounds and 6.7 assists. His shooting percentages in Miami were also the highest of his career, as he shot 54% from the field, and 37% from three-point range.
Oh, yes, and he also went to the NBA Finals in all four of his seasons in South Florida, winning two championships in that time.

LeBron is also reportedly bringing back his old Heat ritual of tossing chalk in the air before a game. He has the number. He has an All-Star big man that can get it done on both ends. It's starting to look like Miami Bron is back in just about every way.
