Following his death, a petition has been made for The late Legend to become the new NBA logo. The new Change.org petition hopes to immortalize Kobe’s legacy in the NBA permanently.
Almost three million fans have signed a new Change.org petition to make Kobe’s image part of a new NBA logo, according to @CBSSports.
Close to three million have signed a petition to change the NBA logo from a silhouette of Jerry West to Kobe Bryant. The petition states, “With the untimely and unexpected passing of the great Kobe Bryant please sign this petition in an attempt to immortalize him forever as the new NBA Logo.”
Nick M., the creator of the petition wrote this following the abundance of support it received from fans:
“The support on this petition has been out of this WORLD. I want to deeply thank everybody who contributed through signing and donating to the petition. When I started this I didn’t expect much to come out of it my goal was 100 signatures at best. We are now at 16,000! I hope with our effort that our dream does come true and we are able to see Kobe Bryant engraved into the NBA Logo. Let’s continue to spread this petition out! And as Kobe would’ve said, “Mamba out.”
Although this would not bring back Kobe, Gianna and all the other victims of the crash; this move is one good way to immortalize Kobe.
Additionally, The Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame is inducting Kobe Bryant into the class of 2020 Hall Of Fame.
Basketball Hall of Fame Chairman Jerry Colangelo announced that Kobe will be part of one of the “most epic” classes in hall of fame history.
