Brandon Jennings: Kobe’s Numbers ‘Should Be Retired Throughout The NBA’

Brandon Jennings is a huge Kobe Bryant fan and recently went as far as saying that the five-time champion is “really the greatest ever” ahead of Michael Jordan.

On Sunday night, the Pistons point guard continued the conversation and believes the numbers Jordan (No. 23) and Kobe (No. 8 and 24) wore should be retired throughout the NBA on Twitter:

While the Chicago Bulls never retired Jordan’s No. 45, Jennings thinks Kobe will be the first player to ever have both numbers retired in the NBA:

Over the course of his basketball career dating back to his playing days in Italy, Kobe has worn three numbers: 8, 24, and 33. The five-time champion made the switch to 24 in 2006 and there have been reports that his preference is to have this number eventually retired by the Lakers at Staples Center.

With No. 24 likely going up in the rafters because of his accomplishments after winning three championships with Shaquille O’Neal, the No. 8 will probably not be worn by another Laker. Since the change nearly a decade ago, no player has worn his former number.

With Kobe likely playing the final two seasons of his career, all eyes will be on the future Hall of Famer as he looks to continue playing at a high level in hopes of winning another championship.
