    Was Jordan 6 on the US Olympic teams? Seems like LBJ may give up waring 23 to honor Jordan but will still be honoring him by wearing his Olympic number.

    I believe Jordan wore #9, I had the Olympic air Jordan's that had a little "9" where the "23" usually was.
    Witty signature.

    LeBron James Encourages NBA To Stop Jumping In Honor Of Michael Jordan

    WASHINGTON—Prior to Wednesday's game against the Washington Wizards, Cleveland Cavaliers all-star LeBron James announced that he would stop jumping during professional basketball games in order to properly honor recent Hall of Fame inductee Michael Jordan. "MJ jumped a lot. It was his signature. When players jump in this league, whether for a tip-off, a jump shot, or a layup, they're basically copying what Michael Jordan did when he would propel himself upward and lift both feet off the ground," James told reporters in a press conference in which he asked other players to join him in the ground-staying-on tribute. "The fact of the matter is, without MJ changing the game by making his body go up into the air, us young guys wouldn't even know what jumping is." James later scored 38 points against the last-place Wizards with his feet flat on the floor.
