Orange County declared August 24 Kobe Bryant Day

Bryant would have been 42 on August 23.

August 24 will be the Kobe Bryant Day in Orange County, where Kobe lived while he passed away in the helicopter crash.

Per LaMag, Orange County’s Board of Supervisors voted yesterday to declare August 24 Kobe Bryant Day, a nod to the late Lakers legend’s now-retired jersey numbers “8” and “24.”

The declaration calls Bryant a “basketball legend [who] inspired so many globally to pursue their dreams and taught us that hard work truly pays off,” and encourages the community to celebrate by engaging in community building, helping young people in need, encouraging aspiring youth to follow their dreams, and living by Bryant’s words: ‘The most important thing is to try and inspire people so that they could be great in whatever they want to do.’”
