Stephen A. Smith (American sports television personality, sports radio host, sports journalist, and actor) expressed the view that Michael Jordan and not Kobe Bryant should be on the new NBA logo.

The National Basketball Association’s reigning “logo man” for the past 40 years is Jerry West, but after Kobe Bryant’s death, basketball fans and various celebrities, including basketball players, started a petition to change the NBA logo. NBA board refrains from making any comments.
