Why Did Michael Jordan Pick Number 23
The number 23 is as significant as the Jumpman logo but it still begs the
question, why did Michael Jordan choose 23 as his
number? The man who helped spawn the 23 fanfare was his older brother, Larry Jordan. In another
story of little brother looks up to big brother, Michael wanted to emulate his brother by choosing the number 45
while at Laney High School.
However, since they both attended the school, Michael couldn't choose the same number so he decided to cut it in
half. With 22.5 not being the option, the number 23 was born and is now one of the most popular numbers in
association to basketball.
