#8 or #24 ... that's the issue the Lakers will face when it comes time to retire Kobe Bryant's jersey -- but Rick Fox says he has a better solution ... RETIRE 'EM BOTH!!!
The issue is that Bryant dominated in both numbers ... winning 3 NBA championships in #8 (2000, 2001, 2002) and 2 in #24 (2009, 2010).
It's a completely different situation from Michael Jordan ... who only rocked the #45 for 22 games before switching back to #23.
So, what should the Lakers do??
Fox says it's time for the team to break tradition and let Kobe become the first player with TWO numbers in the rafters.
Stay tuned ...
