The Akron RubberDucks are giving LeBron James a well-deserved honor.
The team retired James' number-23 before last night's game at Canal Park.
Team officials say they wanted to thank the NBA superstar for his positive work with Akron's young people and his success in delivering a pro sports championship to northeast Ohio.
