Report has it that Kobe is going to change is number to 24, some people say it's because he wants to get away from is old past, like rape case, feud with Shaq, some other people say that he wants to have a higher number then Jordan so he can be superiour to him. Some say that with the Jordan XXXIII's coming out soon, Nike wants Kobe to pick up where he left off at XXXIV. But the only way you can change number is if you change teams or you ask the NBA offices six months in advance. Also the Lakers signed Jim Jackson and he's currently supporting number 24. What do you guys think?
