City of Carson Renames Rec Center after Kobe Bryant

You get the feeling this will be happening a lot in the next couple of years


The building will formally be known as Kobe Bryant Gym after the City Council’s Tuesday night vote, the Carson officials said in a news release.

The resolution was introduced by Mayor Albert Robles, who said Bryant once filmed a commercial at the indoor courts in 2004.

“Obviously as a Laker fan I was shocked by the news ofcompaKobe Bryant’s death, but as a father who also takes his kids around during the weekend to their games, this tragedy particularly resonated with me,” Robles said in a statement, using a Spanish word for “friend.”
