The supervisors of Orange County, a community in California where Kobe Bryant lived with his family, have picked an easy-to-remember date to designate as Kobe Bryant Day.
It’s Aug. 24, chosen for the two jersey numbers, 8 and 24, the late Lakers legend wore during his 20-year career.
That date is also a day after Bryant’s birthday. He would have been 42 this year.
The supervisors voted to observe Kobe Bryant Day at the request of board Chairwoman Michelle Steel, a lifelong Lakers fan. She said Bryant, who lived with his family in Newport Beach, was a “treasured member of our community” who “inspired so many men and women to pursue their dreams and never give up.”
Orange County follows the Los Angeles City Council, which designated the same date as Kobe Bryant Day in 2016.
The board’s resolution names all nine people who died in a helicopter crash Jan. 26 in Calabasas — Bryant and his daughter Gianna; Orange Coast College baseball coach John Altobelli, his wife, Keri, and their daughter Alyssa; Christina Mauser; Ara Zobayan; and Sarah Chester and her daughter Payton.
