Lakers Retiring Kobe Bryant's Jersey Dec. 18


The Lakers are planning to retire Kobe's jersey before the Warriors game on Dec 18, per team sources.

Earlier today, TMZ reported that the Los Angeles Lakers have chose to retire Kobe Bryant's jersey on December 18th, prior to their game against the Golden State Warriors. According to TMZ Sports, the Lakers wrote a letter to season-ticket holders that the December 18 game would feature a "special event". He accomplished all of those feats with one team, but did them in two different jersey numbers - No. 8 (which he wore from 1997-2006) and No. 24 (which he wore from 2007-16). He will be the tenth player to have his jersey (s) retired by the Lakers, joining the likes of Magic Johnson, Wilt Chamberlain, Shaquille O'Neal, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, and Jerry West.

The Lakers also placed the name of longtime team broadcaster Chick Hearn in the rafters of Staples Center.

Bryant was selected 13th overall in the 1996 draft by the Charlotte Hornets, and then traded to Los Angeles in a draft day deal. He boasts career averages of 25 points, 5.2 rebounds and 4.7 assists per game.
