In the earliest parts of this calendar year, the world lost a legend with the tragic passing of Kobe Bryant.
As the entire world mourned together, there were many touching tributes made to honour the life the icon, his daughter, and the other lives lost in the accident.
Now, the place that Kobe made his kingdom is honouring his memory in the most fitting way we can imagine.
Orange County has officially declared August 24th – the 24th day of the eighth month, and the day before his birthday - Kobe Bryant day.
This is the perfect way to honour the icon, and the person who changed basketball in LA forever.
