Kobe Bryant Is "The Greatest to Wear Purple and Gold!"

posted by Dawn Dai -

Last night fans from all over the world celebrated the retirement of Kobe Bryant's No. 8 and No. 24 jerseys at the the Staples Center in Los Angeles. 

NBA legend, Magic Johnson made it known that Kobe Bryant is "the greatest to wear purple and gold."

With 20 years under his belt with the LA Lakers, Bryant gave his 14th speech since his retirement back in 2016. As it stands, no other player in NBA history has had more 8-of-24 shooting performances than him. Who would have ever thought an 18-year-old kid from Orange County would mirror the talents of NBA legend, Michael Jordan?

Tyrese took to his IG  account with Drake and Denzel Washington to share their excitement on Kobe's jersey retirement. 

This was my last Laker game......... Although I don’t know much about the new players I wish you guys the best......... Witnessing the Magic, Kareem and then Kobe Era...... That’s gonna be a tough era to follow........
