You guys, Michael Jordan is 'cool' with Lebron wearing 23
Since Lebron James decided to wear the #23 this coming season I know there's only one thing on your mind: Is Michael Jordan cool with that. You passed on attending your best friend's wedding, opted against cashing in a free blimp ride voucher, and refused to respond to the concerned texts, calls and emails from your family because you couldn't possibly continue life before knowing.
Well friend. You can continue your life; Jordan is totes cool with it.

Michael Jordan has no problem with LeBron James returning to No. 23 in his second stint with the Cleveland Cavaliers.
"I'm cool with it,'' Jordan told ESPN.com via text message Monday morning. "I don't own a number.''
Many will recall that James suggested retiring the #23 in 2009 as a way to honor Michael Jordan for all that he had done for the game, and then chose to wear the #6 the following season, because its not like that was a number worn by anyone who ever did anything good for the game of basketball.
Hey Lebron, try this equation on for size:
2+3+6 = the amount of championships won by the most important basketball player ever.
