On a wake of Kobe’s death, the world mourns and with that being said, his lovable fans signed a Petition to change the NBA logo to his signature pose.
Well basketball is indeed our favorite sport.
And speaking of basketball, we first think about the NBA.
Brief info about Basketball
Created by James Naismith in 1891, the game consists of five players per team and 2 teams involved.
The mechanics are simple, shoot the ball on the basket of the opposing team.
Just like a game of soccer, however, instead of foot, you will use your hands to dribble the ball.

Because of that, this sport is one of the events at the Olympics and other sports’ biggest events.
With that being said, the National Basket Association, the NBA is one of those events.
Mostly, teams are from America and the players as well.
And every year, they held a championship consisting of 16 teams called “Playoffs.”
I’m sure one of you had watched or following a basketball game.
However, the basketball community is in tears today.
Worldwide share their thoughts and prayers for Kobe and her daughter Gianna who is in the crash as well among 7 others who died as well this Sunday.
They died because of the helicopter crash on their way to the Mamba Sports Academy.
We all probably thinking right now that, “this is some kind of joke right?” Or “that’s fake news,” but it’s not.
The World and Kobe
Fans give their tributes for both Kobe and Gigi like making paintings and portraits, wall arts and more.
In New York, the Empire State building lightens up with gold and purple lights as a representation of LA Lakers where Kobe plays for 2 decades of being a basketball superstar.
Meanwhile, in the Philippines, few malls light up their buildings with gold and purple with Bryant’s number and name as well.
There is a court also that has a painting of Bryant and her daughter.
But what caught everyone’s attention is fans started a petition for making Kobe’s signature pose as a new NBA logo.
Originally, Jerry West, a Lakers legend was the original logo.
The Logo was created by Alan Siegel, the founder of Siegel+Gale designs back in 1969.
Now right after Bryant’s death, many fans agreed to this to remember his legacy and contribution in the league and basketball.
And it’s sad as we will see him being on the hall of fame however we will not see him physically.
