Kobe Becomes the 1st player to have two Jerseys Retired From the Same Team
The LA Lakers will retire both of Kobe Bryant's jerseys No. 8 and No. 24 before their game against the Golden State Warriors on Dec. 18
Bryant, who retired after the 2015-16 season, played 20 seasons with the Lakers, winning five championships. The 18-time All-Star scored 33,643 career points, currently third on the all-time list behind Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Karl Malone
The Lakers usually retire only the jerseys of players in the Basketball Hall of Fame. Bryant isn't yet eligible for enshrinement, but the team is confident he will be inducted.
