DALLAS — The Dallas Mavericks are retiring No. 24 after Kobe Bryant’s tragic death, owner Mark Cuban announced Sunday evening.
Bryant died along with eight others in a helicopter crash in Calabasas on Sunday.
The Mavericks beat Bryant and the Lakers in the Western Conference semi-finals in 2011.
Bryant wore No. 8 for the first 10 years of his career before switching to No. 24. Richard Jefferson was the last Maverick to don the number in 2015.
