Nicky M, 16, created the petition on Change.org in an attempt to urge the NBA to commemorate Kobe Bryant by making him the new NBA logo. Which started as a campaign by a devoted Kobe Bryant fam, has turned into a massive social campaign after several celebrities like Usher, Snoop Dogg, Justing Beiber and Meek Mill have signed and promoted the petition on social media with #changethelogo.

Kobe Bryant, who was killed along with his daughter Gianna and seven others in a helicopter crash, is arguably one of the best players in NBA history. The Lakers legend won five NBA Championships in his 20-year-career winning two NBA Finals MVP (2009, 2010). An 18-time NBA All-Star Kobe Bryant has also been lauded by the fans and NBA players for his 'Mamba' mentality that highlighted his resilience and attitude as an athlete.
