LeBron James is a fan of the game of basketball, no matter what team you’re talking about. He will always have a soft spot for the LA Lakers, and the #6 is also close to his heart.

Newly signed Chicago Bulls guard Alex Caruso is going to wear the #6. LeBron James already has his eye on that spot and he will pick up a jersey as soon as they drop.

The two are former teammates, who played together on the Los Angeles Lakers from 2018 to 2021. They also won an NBA Championship in 2020.

Chicago signed the former Lakers guard to a four-year, $37-million deal just days into his time as a free agent. When LeBron James saw a post of Caruso in his new jersey, he commented on Instagram to say, “My twin I need that 6 jersey ASAP!”

We’ll have to see if King James has to pay for a jersey or if his twin will send him one on the house. LeBron is a fan of collecting jerseys. He also still has football jerseys sent to him when he received NFL offers during the 2011 NBA lockout.
