In an emotional tribute to one of the city's most beloved sports figures, the Lakers on Thursday unveiled a statue of Kobe Bryant at Crypto.com Arena. The statue unveiled at the ceremony depicted Bryant wearing the No. 8 on his uniform. But his widow Vanessa Bryant said there will be three statues - the others with him wearing No. 24 and with Gianna, his daughter who was killed in the same helicopter crash that took Kobe's life in 2020. The others were not displayed at the ceremony.
