I have a little theory about Kobe's uniform numbers.
His first uniform in the NBA is 8. He won three titles under that uniform number and three times eight 3x8=24
About 24. This is his second uniform number (2nd) and hes hoping to win 4 more titles. If you put together the numbers you get 24. Winning 4 more titles will get him 7 titles overall. Which is by one
more than MJs. And ofcourse his uniform number is also by one
higher than MJs.
EDIT: two days ago i bough a new jersey. Kobe's 24.
