Absolutely it's true. Maravich played before Jordan. Everyone knows this.

He chose 23 because Kobe is 2/3 the player Lebron is

quote:

Michael idolized Larry who, while not an NBA player, was a gifted basketball player at Emsley A. Laney High School in Wilmington and taught Michael many aspects of the game. Larry wore number 45 on his jersey, and that's what Michael originally wanted to wear once he got to high school. But since Larry was still playing there, Michael needed to choose a different number.

Choosing 23
He instead chose to wear half of 45, which rounds up to 23. The number stuck, as he wore it throughout high school and college at the University of North Carolina, as well as most of his Hall-of-Fame NBA career.

Michael Jordan idolized his brother. He thought he had half his skills. His brother wore 45. Half of that is 22.5. Round that off and that's 23. When Jordan came back to the Bulls after his first retirement, he briefly wore the number 45 before going back to #23 in the 1996-97 season.

No. MJ was as we know a huge baseball fan and idolized Cubs 2B Ryne Sandberg.
