LeBron James is gifting his #23 jersey number to former Kentucky Wildcat, Anthony Davis when he arrives to play for the Lakers.

The NBA has already been notified of the pending jersey change. Davis has worn #23 since arriving at Kentucky for his one season and 7 more years in the NBA.

The change also has Lakers fans excited because they expect James to go back to #6 which he wore in Miami to help lead to the Heat to two NBA Championships.

The Davis trade to Los Angeles won’t be finalized until July 6th.
