LeBron James to become...The Prisoner?

Written by Juan Cena on Friday, November 13 2009 and posted in SWRT

LeBron James announced his desire to change his jersey number next year from number 23 to number six. About darn time. Wearing Michael Jordan's number was possibly the ultimate in smugness when he started doing so as a rookie. The NBA should just go ahead and retire Jordan's number altogether, like MLB retired Jackie Robinson's number 42 league-wide. James side so last night.
James' says he wants to wear number 6 (which he wore in the Olympics) next hear. Ah, now here's an interesting one. Bill Russel wore number 6 for Boston. Julius Erving wore it for Philadelphia. So James would have company on an historic level with that number. Number 6 isn't as owned by them as 23 is owned by Jordan, but it would be kind of nice if James he could totally own.
Besides, there's already one major Number Six out there...The Prisoner. Most science fiction geeks could tell you that Number Six was the number given to an otherwise anonymous secret agent played by Patrick McGoohan in a British TV series called The Prisoner. He found himself trapped in a strange community/prison called The Village. (A remake of the show will be starting on AMC this Sunday).
There are some strange analogies here with Lebron James and The Prisoner. Next year James could find himself in a strange city where he's more a prisoner than a king.
