24 still doesn't look good on him, 8 suited him perfectly. I hope one day he changes it back.

I can't imagine him wearing anything other than 24 now. (Other than #10 for USA)

I was sad when he first changed it, but I'm used to #24 now.

I know same here. #8 is like the old Kobe and #24 is the new one. I wonder if they're going to retire both jerseys for Kobe.

Do you think,they should retire 8,or retire 24?


I like 24,cuz two numbers look better on a jersey,number 8 was too thin

I think they should retire both since he wore them and accomplished a lot with both numbers. However, they're probably going to end up retiring #24 for sure.

When he first changed to 24, it was abit of a shock, but I've grown used to it now. If he changes back to 8, it will take time to get used to it again Plus, I'm starting to like the look of 24. It represents the new Kobe.

A lot of people went crazy when he changed it... "OMG THIS IS WIERD!!!" and even though I thought it looked weird at first I knew everyone would get used to it. Nothing to complain about, both were good.

Both have to be retired.
8 = youth. Golden Boy. 3 titles, part of one of the greatest duos every, the dynasty. 62, 81, all that.
24 = New, more mature Kobe. We haven't even hit the new dynasty yet.

I dunno, the 24 looks forced while 8 looks natural.

Yeh, we should retire both. Maybe Kobe should change his number again in a few years. Dominate the whole rafters. Maybe his new number can be 81 or something.

i think #24 is fine... the #8 was a young, immature, and raw kobe bryant but the #24 is a more mature, better leader, and an MVP kind of kobe bryant...

Hmmm imo, #81 should also be up there, even only there's #100 for Wilt... :rock:

I thought that too after he changed it :lol:

I loved him with #8 though. When I would choose my number for volleyball team in 6th grade, I chose #8 for Kobe. :rock:

I love 24. Kobe can rock whatever he wants

Hell he could switch to 99 and change his name to Gretzky and I'd be cool with it

Already done by Manny. :beers:

Kobe played 9 seasons in 8, and will probably play like 4-5 in 24. So they'll retire both.
