Amazing! LA Lakers will Retire another Kobe Bryant Jersey

The LA Lakers are to retire both of five-time NBA champion Kobe Bryant’s number eight and 24 jerseys.

Bryant, 39, retired in April 2016 after a 20-year career with the Lakers, scoring 60 points in his final game.

He finished as the Lakers’ all-time point scorer and third on the NBA’s all-time list with 33,643 points.


“I always dreamed of my jersey hanging in the Lakers rafters, but I certainly never imagined two of them,” said Bryant, who made his debut in 1996.

The jerseys will be retired at a half-time ceremony on 18 December when the Lakers host the Golden State Warriors.
