Kemba Walker is considering changing his number in order to pay tribute to the late LA Lakers and NBA Legend Kobe Bryant.

The star of the Boston Celtics said he is still contemplating the possible change.

“I’m considering it, but I’m not sure yet. I definitely have tons of respect for Kobe. Everybody mourns a bit different. For me, I’m thinking I’d love to honor him by wearing that number.

Kobe played hard each and every night, and I would like to honor him by doing the same. I am definitely thinking about it. But we’ll see,” Walker said, per Malika Andrews and Tim Bontemps of ESPN.

Bryant and his daughter Gianna died in a helicopter crash in California on Sunday.
