Lakers: City of LA to Rename Street in Honor of Kobe Bryant



August 24th will forever be a special day in Los Angeles history thanks to Mr. Kobe Bryant. A Hall of Fame career and a life of service to his community has led to this day being recognized in his honor.

The City of Los Angeles had something special in mind to help celebrate this momentous day, a way to help his name live on. The announcement came via the twitter account of the LA City Council President, Herb Wesson Jr.

For those that don’t know, this particular section of Figueroa crosses directly in front of Staples Center, all the way down to the Banc of California Stadium. Figueroa has long been an iconic street in Los Angeles, thanks in part to the several Lakers championship parades that have gone down this very path.

Kobe Bryant was and always will be a fan favorite here in LA. The passion and drive he showed on the court was only matched by his passion for helping others succeed. He gave so much of his life to our city and it is only right that we honor him back by continuing the work he left behind.
