At least two petitions urging the NBA to change its iconic logo to reflect the image of late basketball legend Kobe Bryant have been launched.
The Kobe 4 Logo campaign on the Ball Is Life Instagram page has been signed by a number of celebrities, including 2Chainz, Snoop Dogg, Meek Mill and Derek Hough.
Close to two million persons have signed the petition. Ball Is Life is pushing for 3 million signatures. Bryant along with eight other people, including his 13-year-old daughter Gianna, died in a helicopter crash in California on Sunday.
Since then persons have been seeking to further immortalize the NBA great. Another petition by Nick M on Change.org has already generated over a million signatures after asking for three million.
It’s uncertain what route the NBA will take on this one. The current logo is the silhouette of NBA legend Jerry West.
