The Lakers’ game against the Los Angeles Clippers on Tuesday was postponed due to the devastating news. With that said, Friday will surely be an emotional night in the stadium that Bryant essentially owned when he was a superstar for the Purple and Gold franchise during his playing days.
LeBron is averaging 25.3 points, 7.7 rebounds and 10.7 assists on the season. The King is playing like an MVP now that he’s healthy again.
Davis, meanwhile, is putting up 26.5 points, 9.1 rebounds and 3.2 assists per game in his first season in LA. Both LeBron and Davis were very close with Bryant, so it is not a stretch to say they are going to dedicate the rest of the season to Kobe.
The Lakers trained outside on a football field on Thursday to change up the mood.
LA retired Bryant’s No. 8 and 24 jerseys last year. He will be a first-ballot Hall of Famer as part of an incredible class when inductees are announced later this year and his story will never be forgotten by Lakers or NBA fans as a whole.
