Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban announced Sunday that the team will retire No. 24 in tribute to the late Kobe Bryant.
Bryant passed away on Sunday, along with his 13-year-old daughter Gianna and seven others, in a helicopter crash near Calabasas, California. He was 41.
“We are shocked and saddened by the devastating news of the passing of Kobe Bryant and his daughter, Gianna,” said Cuban in a statement.
“Kobe’s legacy transcends basketball, and our organization has decided that the number 24 will never again be worn by a Dallas Maverick.”
Cuban also took to Twitter himself to express his grief.
