Kobe Bryant statue features several typos, Lakers working to correct them

Kobe Bryant was given the ultimate honor posthumously in February, when the Los Angeles Lakers unveiled a statue of him outside Arena.

A little more than a month after the ceremony, the Lakers have acknowledged that several errors on the statue will be corrected.

The names of Jose Calderon and Von Wafer are misspelled in the replica box score from Bryant's 81-point game in 2006 against the Toronto Raptors, as is the phrase "Coach's Decision." On the side where Bryant's career accomplishments are listed, there is a formatting error.

The design and pose of the statue were revealed when it was unveiled on the special date of 2/8/24 — signifying the No. 8 and No. 24 jerseys Bryant wore with the Lakers and the No. 2 that his daughter Gianna wore on her youth basketball team. The statue features Bryant standing in a victorious pose with his right hand held in the air from the 81-point game.

"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.

Vanessa Bryant revealed during the ceremony that Kobe will have three statues outside arena. One will feature Bryant in his No. 24 jersey, and the other will be of him standing next to Gianna, who died with Bryant and seven others in a 2020 helicopter crash in Southern California.

Dates for those statue unveilings have not been announced by the Lakers.
