LOS ANGELES (AP) – The Los Angeles Lakers retired jersey numbers 8 and 24 in honor of Kobe Bryant during halftime of Monday’s 116-114 overtime loss against the Golden State Warriors.

Bryant said during the ceremony that it’s not about the jerseys that are hanging up there for him, it’s about the jerseys that were hanging up there before.

The first NBA player to have two jersey numbers retired by the same team said the other retired numbers gave him inspiration to play at a high level.
