Lakers to Retire Kobe Bryant’s Jersey Before Warriors Game in December


KobeBryant’s career and legacy with the Los Angeles Lakers will be remembered for years to come, as his jersey will join the greats in the rafters. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

According to TMZ, the Lakers are planning to retire Bryant’s jersey before the Warriors game on December 18. Although the ceremony has yet to be announced, the team sent a letter to Lakers season ticket holders, suggesting them to “hold on to their tickets for the game on Dec. 18” for a “special event.”

But, with the retirement of Bryant’s jersey, the organization must decide which number will be hung, as the superstar wore #8 and #24 throughout his career with the L.A. team. Back in 2016, Bryant provided the perfect response to the question, saying “[Whichever number they choose] it’s going to be pretty hard for someone else to wear the other one.”

With that being said, there’s a strong possibility both numbers will hang to highlight Bryant’s decorated, 20-year tenure with the team.
