The jerseys for the NBA All-Star Game on Sunday will feature multiple tributes to Kobe and Gianna Bryant, it has been revealed.
We already knew that every player on Team LeBron would be wearing Gianna’s No. 2 while all of Team Giannis would be sporting Kobe’s iconic No. 24. Additionally, the jerseys will have commemorative patches for the Bryants and the seven other helicopter crash victims.
Darren Rovell has the first look at the jerseys. The memorial patch is black and features nine white stars–one for each person who was killed. It will be on the right shoulder area.
On the left side, a black armband will honor late NBA commissioner David Stern. Stern passed away on New Year’s Day at the age of 77.
Take a look:
