TMZ Sports reported Tuesday that the Los Angeles Lakers are planning to retire Kobe Bryant’s jersey number on Dec. 18 prior to a game against the Golden State Warriors at the Staples Center in L.A.
While TMZ Sports noted that the Lakers have yet to confirm, the organization said in a letter to season-ticket holders that the Dec. 18 game would feature a “special event.” The 39-year-old Bryant retired at the conclusion of the 2015-16 season after a 20-year career spent entirely with the Lakers. So far this is all a rumor but if true it would be will be a well-deserved honor for one of the greatest to ever do it.
