With LeBron James returning to the Cavaliers that leaves only one more thing he needs to make right. Honoring Bill Russell by taking someone else's number other than number 6. LeBron previously wanted to honor Jordan so he gave up his number 23. Unfortunately James decided to take number 6 which was Bill Russell's number. The guy who has more than twice as many NBA Rings ad Michael Jordan. While Jordan has 6 rings, Bill Russell earned 13, 11 as a player and 2 as a coach (player coach at that).
Let's see just how James handles this one and what number he takes.
It's easy to forgive LeBron for his not 1, not 2, not 3 comments, but we can never thank Bill Russell enough for his not saying it but doing it....
Not 8, not 9, not 10, But 11 actual NBA Championships, and against the likes of Bob Pettitt, Wilt Chamberlain, Oscar Robertson, Elgin Baylor and Jerry West in their prime not Karl Malone, John Stockton and Patrick Ewing like Jordan. Respect often precedes greatness. Ball is in LeBron's court.
