Kobe Bryant, His Wife And Beautiful Daughters All Watched His No. 8 And 24 Lakers Jerseys Being Retired Last Night

"Mamba Out."

Published December 19th

Kobe Bryant's Christmas gifts came early last night in the form of his two Los Angeles Lakers jerseys — No. 8 and 24 — being retired by the storied franchise and lifted into the Staples Center's rafters.

Best of all, the five-time NBA champion enjoyed the unforgettable moment surrounded by his family: wife Vanessa and three daughters, Natalia, Gianna, and baby Bianka.

Take a look at some of the sights and sounds from last night.

    Bryant did help deliver three championships to the Lakers, rocking No. 8, and two more as No. 24, warranting both jerseys being retired.
