LeBron James scored 6 points while wearing #6 during Monday’s annual Wine & Gold Scrimmage. #6? What happened to #23?

“It’s just a number of mine,” James said after playing 12 minutes – with a headband – in the scrimmage. “One of my two numbers — 6, 23. There’s nothing to it. It’s my practice jersey.”

James also said the number switching idea came from former 2-sport athlete and FSU great Deion “Prime Time” Sanders.

“When he went to the pros he wore 2 in practice but wore 21 on the playing field. It’s like that.”

As for the free to the public scrimmage, James shot 2 of 7 for the losing team which was led by Mo Williams and his 9 points.  The Gold team was led by undrafted rookie Quinn Cook who had a game-high 13 points on 5 of 6 shooting.
