Lebron James is No. 6 at practice, still No. 23 in games

Most NBA players end up choosing one jersey number to represent themselves. LeBron James is big enough for two, however. LBJ sported the #6 during the Cleveland Cavaliers Wine & Gold Scrimmage last night, a digit he wore in Miami for the Heat and in two of his Olympic appearances.

It's just a number of mine," James said after the scrimmage. "One of my two numbers -- 6, 23. There's nothing to it. It's my practice jersey."

Word. Maybe James is a numerophiliac and just likes them as fashion statements. Some people also live out their nostalgia in such manners.
