Career Stats: 27.5 points, 7.2 rebounds, 6.9 assists
Years He Wore No. 23: 2003-2010, 2014-?
There's a reason why we decided to rank these players who wore MJ's number after he retired "from least deserving to LeBron." With all due respect to everyone else on the list, no one—and we do mean no one—has come close to repping 23 as well as LeBron has during his career. So when LeBron eventually retires, the NBA is going to have no choice but to retire the number. Because really, who's going to want to wear the same number as Michael and LeBron and take on that responsiblity?
Nobody. Not even the guy at the end of the Spurs' bench who never gets the chance to take off his warmups.
