For example, when you see the jersey number 23, do you think of LeBron James (even though he changed his number to 6) or Michael Jordan?

For me, if I see the #24 on a jersey I automatically think Kobe Bryant.

How bout you guys?

WTH would someone think of Lebron over MJ unless they have absolutely no knowledge of basketball until the 2000's?

#24 Rick Barry and Moses Malone wore before Kobe.

IMO the toughest is #33 because Kareem, Bird, Pippen, Ewing, Mourning, Hill all wore that number.

No idea who'd pick LeBron over Jordan, but it was the first thing that came to mind when making an example... I was going to use #8 with DWill & Kobe, haha

#34 is another one with Hakeem, Shaq, Barkley,

#21 with Duncan, Garnett, Dominique

For me, if I see the #24 on a jersey I automatically think Kobe Bryant.

How bout you guys?

Kobe wore #8 for 10+ years lol

#8 I think of Antoine Walker. Who can forget Antoine Walker?

Depends on the individual. For me 15: Vince Carter, 23: Michael Jordan and 21: Duncan are the most prevalent.

Big Rodman fan so I think of him for #91, #10, #73, & #70 (the last two for a short period)

11: Thomas
33: Bird
O: Wooldrige (dont know why... lol)
23: Jordan
4: Joe D
34: Barkley
32; Karl Malone (I know it should be Magic, but... for me its Malone)
6: Russel
12: Stockton

Today's generation... I just dont associate them with jersey numbers really. kobe and LBJ switched theirs, and guys like McGrady, Melo... they have numbers I already associate with other players. I think most people will associate the numbers with the players they grew up loving to watch. I loved watching Stockton and Malone, Joe D and thomas. I loved Barkley as a kid, and who wouldnt associate 33 with Bird? I even remember that Pippen and Ewing had to wear different numbers at the all-star game because they all had 33 and Bird was the guy that got to wear that number at the all-star game.

I should have Magic for 32 though... but its always malone that pops in my head first.

To take the question literally, "when I think of a jersey number, which player comes to mind?"

When I think of a jersey number, I think of 23. And the player I think of is Jordan. No other number belongs to any single player unequivocally like that.

For all the thousands of hours I've spent watching the NBA, I just don't think or care about a players number. At all. I just had to think hard to remember friggin' Steph Curry's number, and I must've seen 70 Warriors games in full last season, including plenty of live ones. It just doesn't register with me whatsoever.

But, MJ's 23 transcended sport: The earth is round. The sky is blue. Jordan is 23.
