NBA and Los Angeles Lakers legend Kobe Bryant will have the two jersey numbers he wore throughout his career at the Franchise retired.
That’s no longer news. What’s a hot take now is in which jersey number – 8 or 24 – was he a better.

Kobe tweeted on MNonday in response to the question asked on twitter: 8 v 24 Discuss…
His response ws subliminal. The 39-year-old tweeted :
Different animal, same beast.
