Errors On Kobe Bryant’s Statue To Be Fixed Forthwith

Kobe Bryant’s statue which was unveiled last month outside the arena is now a place for fans to rush to during L.A Lakers games. However, it’s already in need of a couple of changes.

There are a few blunders in the carved marble base of the statue, including Jose Calderon’s and Von Wafer’s names incorrectly spelt in the reproduction box score from Bryant’s 81-point game between the Lakers and Toronto Raptors and a formatting mistake on another side of the base where Bryant’s career accomplishments are listed.

“We have been aware of this for a few weeks and are already working to get it corrected soon,” a Lakers spokesperson said in a statement on Monday March 11.

A tweet from German b-ball journalist André Voigt showing photographs of the mistakes became a viral post on Monday morning.

Bryant’s 19-foot statue portraying him in his No. 8 pullover is the first of three sculptures that have been built to honour the Lakers Great, as indicated by his widow, Vanessa Bryant.

The planned location and the unveiling date for the other two statues, one of Bryant in his No. 24 uniform and the other with his daughter, Gianna, who also died in the 2020 helicopter crash, are still to be determined, according to a Lakers spokesperson.
