Los Angeles city leaders have declared this Wednesday as “Kobe Bryant Day,” honoring the Los Angeles Lakers icon who played 20 seasons in purple and gold before retiring in April.
The honor, which was announced in a statement Monday, falls on a day that commemorates the two jersey numbers that Bryant wore during his Lakers career: 8 and 24.
