King James’ homecoming will come with another symbolic reversion: the future Hall of Famer will return to his number 23 jersey. After taking to Instagram to ask for input from his fans, LeBron James made the announcement of his choice in the same fashion.

“23 it is! It’s only right I go back. 2·3=6 We still family 6. #HomeTeam #StriveForGreatness,” his caption read.
