The emotional support of love for Kobe Bryant continues to flow throughout the various media channels after the tragic passing of the NBA All-Time great. One fan even started a petition on Change.org to encourage the NBA to change its longstanding logo from Jerry West to Kobe Bryant. Coincidentally, West played 14 seasons (1960-74) with the Lakers and coached the them for three seasons (1976-79).
The petition reads, “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.”
Anyone interested can find the petition below in the Ball Is Life tweet.
