Kobe Bryant took his last steps on an NBA court on April 13, 2016. Now you can own the Staples Center hardwood area where "8" stood for the final time as a Los Angeles Laker.
Kobe's No. 8 was proudly displayed on the court for his final game, a spectacular finale in which Bryant scored 60 points to lead the Lakers to a 101-96 victory over the Utah Jazz. The piece of the court that Kobe signed after the last of his 1,346 NBA games will make a remarkable memento for the ultimate Kobe Bryant fan.
The Los Angeles Lakers, NBA and MeiGray are proud to offer fans and collectors across the globe the opportunity to own a piece of history... four court panels making up the #8 display for Kobe Bryant's first number that he wore as a Los Angeles Laker.
These four panels, which measure 4 feet by 8 feet each, create a 20-foot by 8-foot Tetris-shaped tribute to one of the greatest players in NBA history. Each piece will be hologrammed to ensure authenticity. The hologram numbers will be registered into the NBA and MeiGray Game-Worn Jersey Authentication Program database as numbers AM013808, AM013809, AM013810 and AM013811.
