Kyrie Irving is pushing to reignite the movement to have Kobe Bryant’s likeness used as the official NBA logo.
On Wednesday, Irving posted a mock-up designed by Tyson Beck, that uses an image of Kobe Bryant with the caption “Gotta Happen, idc what anyone says. BLACK KINGS BUILT THE LEAGUE.”
Kyrie’s post garnered lots of support from other celebrities like Dez Bryant, Stephen Jackson, and Kobe’s widow Vanessa- who liked the post.
Jerry West, the NBA legend who is currently featured on the league’s logo, has previously said he’s open to the update as well.
