Kobe Bryant’s Jersey To Be Retired By The LA Lakers This Coming Season

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.
