Lakers To Address Several Mistakes Found On Base Of Kobe Bryant Statue


The Los Angeles Lakers have announced their intention to rectify several errors present on the base of the Kobe Bryant statue unveiled outside their arena last month.

The base of the statue contains misspellings of the names of former NBA players Jose Calderon and Von Wafer, as well as a misspelling of the phrase “Coach’s Decision,” all of which appear in a rendering of the box score from Bryant’s historic 81-point game in January 2006. Additionally, there are minor formatting inaccuracies elsewhere on the base, which showcases many of Bryant’s achievements.

“We have been aware of this for a few weeks and are already working to get it corrected soon,” the Lakers said in a statement.

Carved into the marble base of the 19-foot bronze statue, the box score commemorates Bryant’s postgame celebration following the second-highest-scoring game in NBA history. The statue attracts hundreds of fans daily and is situated among other statues honoring prominent Los Angeles sports figures in front of the arena.

According to Bryant’s widow, Vanessa, the statue is the first of three renderings of Bryant that will be erected outside the downtown arena. The Lakers unveiled the initial statue on February 8th as a tribute to Bryant, who tragically passed away, along with his daughter Gianna and seven others, in a helicopter crash in January 2020.

Having spent his entire 20-year career with the Lakers, Bryant achieved numerous accolades, including five championships, and currently ranks as the fourth-leading scorer in NBA history.
