Following the heartbreaking news of Kobe Bryant’s tragic passing, and his daughter Gianna, fans are urging the National Basketball Association (NBA) to change the logo from a figure of Jerry West to Bryant.

More than 1.6million fans have signed a petition to replace the NBA logo with an image of Kobe Bryant, who died in a helicopter crash in California on Sunday, 26 January 2020.

The current NBA Logo was created by Alan Siegel in 1969 by incorporating Lakers-legend Jerry West silhouette.

The petition, which was posted by Nick M. of Vancouver, British Columbia reads:

“With the untimely and unexpected passing of the great Kobe Bryant please sign this petition in an attempt to immortalize him forever as the new NBA Logo”.
