Kyrie Irving, Vanessa Bryant Support Changing NBA Logo To Kobe Bryant

Spread the love

Kyrie Irving has floated the idea that the NBA change its logo to feature the silhouette of Kobe Bryant.

In an Instagram post on Wednesday, Irving tweeted a modified NBA logo with Bryant front and center, with the caption, “Gotta Happen, idc what anyone says. BLACK KINGS BUILT THE LEAGUE”.

Vanessa Bryant shared Irving’s post via Instagram story with her own caption, “love this. @KyrieIrving.”

Jerry West is the current silhouette of the NBA logo, which has been in place since 1969. West has supported changing the logo in the past.

“I hate to say it’s not a Laker, but Michael Jordan,” West said in 2015. “He’s been the greatest player I’ve ever seen. And I’m probably a harsh judge of talent in the sense that I admire players that are really good defensive players and really good offensive players. And I felt that at his time in the game, he was the best defensive player in the game, but more importantly, he was the best offensive player. And he made his teams win.”
