As wild as this might sound, I can 100% see this happening. Will it happen? I have no idea. Could it happen? Without a doubt.

Kobe’s death this past Sunday sent shockwaves through the league, and it’s unlike any death in the world of sports that I’ve ever seen.

The only two who might even come close are Pat Tillman and Dale Earnhardt, and I’m honestly not sure those two are even close.

Kobe was one of the most successful basketball players to ever play the game. The man won five rings with the Los Angeles Lakers!

He also set an example for what it means to be a great professional athlete and athlete in general. His work ethic was the stuff of legends.

The NBA probably won’t make a decision on this for a long time, but I wouldn’t be surprised one bit if it actually happened.
