Lakers News: Kobe Bryant's Statue Looks to Have Multiple Misspelled Words

The tribute to Kobe Bryant appears to have some egregious errors.

The world celebrated the unveiling of the Kobe Bryant statue on February 8, to signify "Kobe Day" and celebrate the Los Angeles Lakers legend. During the unveiling ceremony, Vanessa Bryant revealed that the pose was picked by the man himself. 

The pose picked is that of Bryant celebrating his 81 points against the Raptors. This was just one moment of the legendary career that Bryant had. Even more exciting is that this is one of three statues that the Lakers will be dedicating to the Black Mamba. 

We are unsure when the other two statues will be complete, but more work will need to be done on the current statue as the internet sleuths have discovered some egregious errors in the dedication to Bryant. 

Jose Calderon's name is misspelled as Jose Calderson, Coach's Decision is misspelled as Coach's Decicion, and Von Wafer is misspelled as Vom Wafer. 

Whoever made this statue did not double and triple-check their work, as having more than one error is substantial. 

The base of the statue also appears to be made of marble or a tough stone, which we think might take some time to fix. Either way, the historic night in which Bryant scored 81 points needs to be corrected asap.
