Number 23, the guy who was introduced with the 'Sirius' song

On Twitter, Prop Anon spots something amusing: Basketball superstar Michael Jordan wore No. 23 when he was helping the Chicago Bulls win NBA championships, and the song "Sirius" by the Alan Parsons project was  used to introduce the starting lineup of the Chicago Bulls during Jordan's heyday with the team.

LeBron James, who replaced Michael Jordan as arguably the greatest basketball player in the NBA, also has worn the number 23 on his uniform for most of his career. Above is James with the Cleveland Cavaliers. (Creative Commons photo by Keith Allison).
