Bryant, considered to be one of the greatest basketball players in the game's history, died on January 26th 2020. He and his 13-year-old daughter Gianna were among nine people killed in a helicopter crash in California.
Nets point guard Kyrie Irving, who was very close with Kobe Bryant, put out on social media today that the NBA should get the logo changed to Kobe Bryant.
The current logo was designed by Alan Siegel, and features the silhouette of another great LA Lakers player Jerry West, who is 81 years old. Supporters have also tweeted their own versions of the logo, like the one that Kyrie used in several of his Instagram posts.
Apart from a tweak to the font in 2017, the logo for the National Basketball Association has been the same since it was first designed in 1971.
