LeBron James has decided that his team at the All-Star Game will wear No.2 to honor the late Gianna Bryant.

“The league came to LeBron James with the idea about the All-Star jerseys being No. 2 for Gigi and No. 24 for Kobe. LeBron chose to have his team wear No. 2, he says, because Gianna makes him think about his own daughter, Zhuri,” Dave McMenamin of ESPN reports.

At the same time, the team of Giannis Antetokounmpo will wear No.24 to honor the late Kobe Bryant.

All the jerseys will also feature a patch displaying nine stars, representing the nine lives lost in the tragic helicopter crash.

Bryant and his daughter Gianna died in a helicopter crash in California on Sunday (26/01).
