Kobe Gets Both Of His Lakers Jerseys Hung In The Rafters
Last night, Kobe Bryant got both his #8 and #24 jerseys lifted up into the rafters at his former stomping grounds inside The Staples Center. With a performance from Kendrick Lamar and a bunch of big stars like Shaq showing up just to watch the ceremony, it was definitely a special night to honor Kobe’s legendary career.
After seeing his two jerseys retired, Bryant gave a speech thanking everyone around him for supporting throughout his career. He tells a story of his wife Vanessa gifting him with signed jerseys of all of his favorite players, and that being the motivation he needed to play such an impressive last game before his retirement. He also sends a message to his daughters, saying that they can do anything they want as long as they work hard enough.
