LeBron giving up his No. 23 to Anthony Davis

Can't decide whether LeBron looks like the seasoned old veteran giving up something meaningless to help the youngster along

-or-

Does he look like the over-the-hill player that is giving up his dignity trying to hang on to win one last championship with the young superstar?

Quote:
It appears LeBron James will be going with a different number for the 2019-20 season. James has decided to give his No. 23 to reportedly new teammate Anthony Davis.

Davis, who has worn No. 23 in each of his seven years with the Pelicans before being reportedly dealt to the Lakers on June 15, wore the same number in his lone season at Kentucky.

Probably gave him that 4 million Davis turned down for the Space Jam movie

Good for LeBron, he was #6 in Miami, so not a big deal. But with him, you never know.

Not so fast, Nike nixed the deal.

Now they will sell 23 LeBron for a year, whatever number AD gets, and then next year the new numbers because, well, people are that stupid.

Apparently Nike has a deadline of when number changes have to be submitted.

The whole thing seems like a bigger money grab to me.

More like a consolation for Davis waiving his trade kicker

I know the NFL would make players pay for inventory of their old jerseys if they changed numbers/names (ocho cinco) so this really isn't out of the ordinary.


I just wonder how many bootleg versions of the jersey were made/sold when the announcement was made.

Buy em from the overseas sites. Got a few NFL jerseys and wow they are fantastic and cheap

What happens when the player gets traded?

I have also become a fan of the overseas NFL jersey. The fit is good and the price is much more favorable.

I think the jersey will be too wide and a little short.

That is just the cost of doing business I presume when they get traded. When players change numbers/names (ocho cinco) they usually have to pay.

A bit dated but refers to both and also can find others such as Peterson having to pay a million bucks to change his.
