    We’ll cross that bridge when we get there

    But the likelihood of another player having two Hall of Fame careers in different numbers that stand on their own would be nearly impossible to duplicate

    That's a nice pic. My "pick" would have been to do it graphically.

    if another player sticks with the franchise for 20 year and puts together 2 HOF caliber 10 year periods with different numbers, then you retire both of his numbers as well.We'd be lucky and thrilled for this to set a new precedent that comes up again.

    Nah. The simple solution would have been to do something unique up there on his jersey with both numbers on it.

    I like B probably out of those, but I think his classic fade-away jumper will be the statue. Put 8 on the front and 24 on the back of it.

    Should be the fadeaway or the aeroplane celebration to ice games.

    i like D the most out of those because it's the most "kobe" but come on, is there really a discussion about what his statue should look like?

    Good point there pun intended. Whatever they do needs to have at least big tape on his shooting hand. What was ever more impressive than him a day or two later from nasty finger injuries burying 3 point shots and handling the ball like he didn't have the crap wrapped around his fingers and shooting hand. Some of it stiff and he had to somehow learn to compensate to shoot with it. That quick. Nothing like this guy when it came to playing through injuries. One of a kind.

    yeah if they go with his 81 pose for the statue i would also hope they include the tape on his right index finger to sum up how he played through so many injuries

    That would serve two purposes. Honor one, and shame the other.

    I like how you think sir.

    One of Three Things:

    1) The KCP Airball and Kobe was dsigusted (see the pic I posted in the KCP thread)
    2) He knew KD was going to put an end to us, so he and the family wanted to beat traffic
    3) It was way past their 1 year old daughter's bedtime.

    He did tweet right after sending that correcting the spelling and saying people will read too much into it. Haha

    They really should have T-Mac on the ESPN game crew all the time, over that POS Paul Pierce.

    LOL! I'm glad Jalen is a good sport about it. The commercial with Jalen and Kobe where the waiter asks Kobe how many olives in his martini and Kobe says: "81" is sooooo funny.

    I quite enjoyed this actually. Byron was there, and Kobe is strolling through all of the Laker greats, and after Worthy, says "others"

    bYRON = others

    Suck it B
