A petition is now on Change.org to raise the jersey of Kobe Bryant’s daughter Gianna to the rafters. It would be placed beside both of her Dad’s that are already there.
Young Gigi died alongside her father and seven other people when a helicopter they were travelling in crashed on Sunday killing everyone.
The petition was registered on the platform by Sumer Mukhey and asks for ten thousand signatures to urge the Los Angeles Lakers organization to raise 13-year-old Gianna’s AAU number 2 jersey to rafters of the Staples Center.
It has generated close to ten thousand signatories at the time of writing this article but we are uncertain what the Lakers or the NBA will do in this regard.
