Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James is changing his jersey number from No. 23 to No. 6 next season, according to Shams Charania.

Anthony Davis, meanwhile, is expected to remain No. 3.

James is seen wearing the new number in his upcoming new movie “Space Jam: A New Legacy.”

The 36-year-old wore No. 6 for the four years that he spent with the Miami Heat from 2011-2014, where he won two championships in 2012 and 2013.

James then returned to No. 23 with the Cleveland Cavaliers and helped win the franchise’s first championship in 2016.

When he first joined the Lakers in 2018, he chose No. 23.

James’ career stats by jersey number per StatMuse:

#23: 27.0 PPG, 7.4 RPG, 7.6 APG, 1.5 SPG, 49% FG, 34% 3P, 73% FT

#6: 26.9 PPG, 7.6 RPG, 6.7 APG, 1.7 SPG, 54% FG, 37% 3P, 76% FT
