After all the brouhaha on whose hearts he will break next, LeBron again caused a ruckus on Twitter when he announced on Twitter—okay, on Instagram, but linked to Twitter—that he is going back to number 23 next season.
Seems like LBJ is going back to Cleveland and to his old number to bring back lost hair time. Next week, we predict he will be starting another poll on what brand to use in his pregame powder toss ritual.

We're at the point of the offseason where LeBron picking a number is legitimately the most important news of the week.

All kidding aside, I think it’s great that LeBron isn’t making Cleveland fans buy new jerseys — at least the ones who didn’t burn theirs.

LeBron James will wear 23 for the Cavaliers. He has also announced he will be 25 years old this season.

LeBron just does what he wants regardless of whatever he's said before

Interesting to point out: Pat Riley was one of people who originally convinced LeBron to give up No. 23 out of respect to Jordan.

Cavs fans won't have to buy a new LeBron jersey this season. Can keep rocking #23. Saves you some money.

LeBron in 2009: "I feel like no NBA player should wear 23."
