The Lakers Retire Kobe's #8 and #24 Jerseys
If you follow sports, or even if you don't, the name Kobe Bryant shouldn't be foreign to you. The legendary NBA player retired not too long ago, and just last night the Lakers retired his jerseys (yes thats right jerseys in plural). Kobe Bryant put blood, sweat, and tears into the game of basketball and dedicated his NBA career to the Lakers. In a way, Kobe was the last of his kind; he stuck with one team through the duration of his career and never decided to trade to a different team when times got rough. His worth ethic and winning mentality will live on forever. Watch the footage below of his jersey retirement and speech. Long live the Black Mamba!
