Team LeBron: James to honor Kobe’s daughter Gianna in All-Star Game

Team LeBron will wear No. 2 in honor of Kobe Bryant’s 13-year-old daughter, Gianna, who died alongside Kobe and seven others in a helicopter crash eight days ago. Gianna wore No. 2 throughout her young basketball career.

James explained his decision Monday.

“They asked me which number did I want to wear, the 24 or 2 for my team, and I picked 2,” he said. 

But why No. 2? 

“Zhuri,” James said, referring to his five-year-old daughter. 

Following the Lakers’ emotional Friday night loss to the Blazers, James spoke about the importance of fatherhood to Bryant.
