because that how old he was when he started playing
jordans older brother Larry use to wear the #45, Jordan wanting to be like his brother wanted to wear the same number which was already taken. so he split the number in half which is 22 1/2. there is no such number in basketball so he took 23.
Because that's the number he wanted. Jordan wanted to prove he was at least half as good as his brother Larry, who wore #45 in high school, and continuously beat Michael in one on one as children.
michal Jordan did not choose the #23 the bulls choose it for him, most rookies in any major league sport do not have control over what number they will wear.
his brother wore number 45 and his brother was a huge rival of his as a young kid. he wore #23 because his dream was to be at least half as good as his brother one day. half of 45 is 22.5 so he rounded up to set his goals higher.
Jordan Henderson wears number 14 at Liverpool FC.
Michael Jordan had always wanted to wear #45 because it was his brother Larry's favorite number, and he idolized him.
no he wear number 41 in high school
his dad was number 9
In honor of Michael Jordan.
