LeBron wants No. 6 from Chalmers (Basketball)

Most athletes are attached to their jersey numbers for one reason or another.

But something tells me Anchorage’s Mario Chalmers won’t have a problem parting with No. 6 now that the Miami Heat have added The King.

LeBron James reportedly wants to switch his number from No. 23 to No. 6, the same number he wore in the Olympics.

Now that he’s South Beach bound, chances are Chalmers will ditch his digit.

“All I can say is this is gonna b a fun and exciting year,” Chalmers wrote on his Twitter page. “Can’t wait till oct 1st. Somebody tell Lebron to hills at me bout #6 lol.”

There’s just one hitch: The third-year point guard from Alaska will probably change his mister6clutch Twitter handle.
