Friday, November 13, 2009 - 12:12pm

LeBron James wants NBA players to give up their No. 23s to honor of Michael Jordan.

The Cavaliers player, who has worn 23 since he was a high school sophomore, says players should pay tribute to Jordan for the Hall of Famer's long-lasting impact on the game.

He made the comments following the Cavs' win in Miami on Thursday.

James said he's willing to make the switch and he wants to start a petition to get every player in the league to give up their numbers.
