Brooklyn Nets star Kyrie Irving has reignited the discussion surrounding the potential for Kobe Bryant to be the face of the NBA in featuring on the official NBA logo.
Kyrie has been spearheading the “Kobe for NBA Logo” movement for the late Bryant which initially gained plenty of traction following his tragic death in January 2020. The likes of Dez Bryant, Stephen Jackson, Mark Cuban, Paul Pierce and even Bruce Lee have backed the move.

Jerry West, the current NBA great featured in the logo, has said that he would be happy to see the league change the design. Even the creator of the logo from 1969, Alan Siegel told Newsweek via TMZ that he is open to a modification.
“I’m really proud of the logo, it’s been something that’s been recognized around the world, but if the current players want to recognize someone that’s made a difference, like Kobe, and if the commissioner wanted to do so, I would support it.”
It is one thing for the NBA to implement strategies into the game that pay tribute to Bryant including naming the All-Star Game MVP award after him, but the prospect of Kobe heading a new logo will require patience so watch this space…
