He has been selected an NBA All-Star 18 times, to the All-NBA Team a record 18 times, and to the NBA All-Defensive First Team five times.
He has competed in ten NBA Finals, the third most all time, including eight consecutively between 2011 and 2018.
Nicknamed “King James”, he is widely considered one of the greatest players of all time and is often compared to Michael Jordan in debates over the greatest basketball player ever.
LeBron James’ sporting career has always seen him wear two numbers: No.23 and No.6, and with the Los Angeles Lakers star having switched jerseys to No.6 for the 2021 season, many are wondering why.
Throughout his life, James has worn the No.23 in homage to his idol, Michael Jordan, and would only change to No.6 when rules stated that double-digit numbers were not permitted.
With the United States national team and the Miami Heat he therefore wore No.6, choosing the number in tribute to his eldest son, LeBron James Jr, who was born on October 6, 2004.
He wore the No.6 in the movie Space Jam 2, so the change could well be for lucrative marketing reasons to have greater shirt sales.

He is the eldest child of professional basketball player LeBron James.
On May 29, 2019, James transferred to Sierra Canyon School, a private K–12 school in Chatsworth, Los Angeles, for his freshman year of high school.
He joined the school with his brother Bryce and incoming senior Zaire Wade, son of basketball player Dwyane Wade, a longtime teammate of James’s father.
In the following months, James was followed to Sierra Canyon by five-star recruits, Brandon Boston Jr. and Ziaire Williams.
Entering the season, the team was considered one of the best in high school basketball, with ESPN networks airing 15 of its games.
Throughout his life, James has worn the No. 23 in homage to his idol, Michael Jordan, and would only change to No. 6 when rules stated that double-digit numbers were not permitted.
Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James will reportedly change his jersey number with the Los Angeles Lakers from No. 23 to No. 6 next season.
James has played three seasons with the purple and gold, all while wearing the No. 23. There were reports in the fall of 2019 that James was going to give his No. 23 jersey to Anthony Davis after he was acquired in a trade that offseason.
James even posted a picture of him gifting Davis a No. 23 Lakers jersey with his name on it.
However, because Nike, the Lakers official merchandise partner had already made the Lakers No. 23 jersey with James’ name on it, the plan was temporarily scrapped.
