For the Cleveland Cavaliers fans who didn't burn their old LeBron James jerseys, there won't be any reason to worry about getting a new one now.

After trying to decide between No. 6 and No. 23 for his jersey number, LeBron officially made the announcement on Twitter and Instagram on Sunday that he would return to wearing the same number he wore while last playing in Cleveland.

The only thing left for LeBron to bring back is the pregame chalk toss.
