We all know that one day Kobe will be honored with a statue outside of staples (or whatever arena the lakers are at when the time comes). now looking at all the other statues, we have the recent Kareem with his pattened skyhook. we got chick hern announcing, magic seeming to call a play, no doubt getting ready to dish a dime. when I think of Kobe, his has to be him with his shirt in his mouth, doesnt it?

The statue will be of him infront of a brick wall, still scoring the fade-away!

Lol in all honesty though, I think it will either be that pose where he has his hands on his knees, or a fade-away

Fade away jumper, or even the death stare.

I'm fine with one of them.

It would be sick if they had a pose like this, with Battier's hand ON his face:

But it will probably be one of these three:

I'd be inclined to believe it would be this. Spectacular 81 point performance at Staples, what more needs to be said?

It will be the one him posing with Larry O'Brien trophy pressed on his chest, and making 7 with his fingers.

i was always in the 81 point, point camp, or the fadeaway, but neither of those felt quite right...

another idea i had was a "logo" type statue for him,

not exactly this, but you get the idea...more similar to the actual NBA logo

here's an example of a fadeaway that i would actually like in statue form

ah, i see that the 81 point pose kobe would also have a taped finger, thats so kobe. but ya its gotta be the 81 perfromance imo, thats nba history,for the lakers... .. itll be the lakers way of saying, "ya he did that,for us,too" and it wont be forgotten then,too

Kobe and Randle led Lakers lead the team to a 32-50 record. the Lakers select Myles Turner with the 5th pick.

The fade-away is kind of synonymous with Kobe, I just don't really think it would look cool for a statue.

Maybe if they had him dunking with his mini fro.

id want the fadeaway cause that shot just says kobe to me but the 81 pose is just asking for a future statue.

Id go with the 81 tho
-prime years
-2nd highest scoring game for a player
-badass pose with tape on finger like some said
-all we really had was kobes scoring during those years wich was amazing

either of those would be fine i guess
