Kobe Bryant, no longer the hot spokesman he was before his incident in Colorado, will change his jersey number from 8 to 24 next season. Bryant will switch to “24” to advertise for the FOX show by the same name and hopefully gain a positive rub from the good reputation of the Kiefer Sutherland vehicle.
Bryant announced he also will be changing his name next season, too. When pressed for an answer, Bryant said, “My new name is Earl.”
No word on if he will grow a mustache.
