Lakers Unveil Jerseys They’ll Wear to Honor Kobe and Gianna Bryant in Game 4 vs. Trail Blazers

Kobe Bryant and Gianna Bryant

The Los Angeles Lakers plan on honoring the late Kobe Bryant and his daughter, Gianna, with special jerseys in the NBA playoffs.

The Lakers revealed the jersey on social media, and it includes a special patch to honor the elder Bryant and his daughter after they passed away in a helicopter crash earlier this year.

It had been previously reported that the Lakers were planning on wearing these uniforms if they had advanced past the first round of the playoffs. On Monday, it was reported that they would wear them in Game 4 of their series against the Portland Trail Blazers.

The No. 1-seeded Lakers currently hold a 2-1 series lead over the Trail Blazers.

The elder Bryant is one of the greatest players in Lakers history. He was an 18-time All-Star and won five NBA titles with the Lakers.

In his final game during the 2015-16 season, the elder Bryant scored an incredible 60 points against the Utah Jazz.

Lakers forward LeBron James paid tribute to the five-time champion on Sunday, Aug. 23. The day marked what would have been the elder Bryant’s 42nd birthday.

The Lakers will take on the Blazers in Game 4 of their first-round matchup on Monday night.
