For those of you that do not know already, Lebron James is mulling over the idea of changing his number from 23 to 6 in honor of Michael Jordan.
Well, this is not sitting right with me for some reason. There has been a great player who wore the #6 already. No, it’s not Bill Russell or Julius Erving. Walter Davis is the name that I was looking for.
Davis played for the Phoenix Suns from 1978-88 and was Rookie of the Year back in 1978. Davis averaged more than twenty points per game in six different seasons during his career and was also a six-time All-Star.
Why Lebron want to the kill the legacy of one, Walter Davis? Taking his number might be the last straw and I am not standing for this injustice. While most of you can go on and remember Bill Russell, Julius Erving, and Lebron James, remember the true #6 was Walter Davis.
