With news Tuesday that multiple NBA players plan on informally retiring their Nos. 8 and 24 in honor of Kobe Bryant, one Los Angeles Laker reportedly has another unique tribute in mind.

Guard Quinn Cook will change his number to 28 to honor Bryant's No. 8 and daughter Gianna's No. 2, sources told The Athletic's Shams Charania. Cook has worn No. 2 since joining the Lakers this season.

💔💔my hero man. I’m completely crushed. I haven’t cried this much or been in this much pain since I lost my dad in 2008. Yesterday I lost my hero, my idol, & the main reason my love for this game is where it is today. Can’t really process this but we all are devastated and heartbroken about what happened to my hero Kobe & his beautiful daughter Gianna. You taught us all so much on and off the court. Anyone who knows me knows what Kobe means to me and to the entire world. We need to give all of our energy and prayers to the Bryant family and all the families involved in the tragic event yesterday. I will never get over this, I don’t know what’s going to happen going forward but one thing I know is that Kobe and Gianna are up there in heaven TOGETHER smiling down on us all. You were the greatest I’ve ever seen on the court but you were an even better Father to all four of your daughters man. Wow Bean I’m really writing this right now 💔💔. I will cherish our relationship and everything you told me forever. We are already missing you Kobe and Gigi🙏🏽🙏🏽! RiP DAD!
