Report: Lakers to retire Kobe's jerseys before game vs Warriors

Circle Dec. 18 on your calendars.

The Lakers will retire Kobe Bryant's jerseys that night before their game against the Warriors, according to multiple reports.

No. 8 and No. 24?

Kobe wore No. 8 from his rookie year (1996-97) through the 2005-06 season.

He rocked No. 24 from the 2006-07 campaign through 2015-16.

Over 67 career games against the Warriors, Kobe Bryant averaged 27.0 points, 5.2 rebounds and 4.7 assists.

In his final NBA game on April 13, 2016, The Black Mamba turned in a legendary performance -- 60 points on 22-for-50 shooting, including 6-for-21 from distance.

That same night, the Warriors won their single-season record 73rd game and Steph Curry made 10 3-pointers (46 points total) to finish with 402 on the season.

The Warriors haven't exactly played well against the Lakers in Los Angeles the last three seasons:

- Dec. 23, 2015 -- Lakers 115, Warriors 105
- March 6, 2016 -- Lakers 112, Warriors 95
- Nov. 4, 2016 -- Lakers 117, Warriors 97 

Golden State also plays at Staples Center on Nov. 29.

The Warriors host the Lakers on Dec. 22 and March 14.
