The Denver Nuggets will be in Los Angeles for a very special night honoring the late, great Kobe Bryant.

The Lakers announced on Thursday they will unveil a Bryant statue outside Crypto.Com Arena on February 8, 2024. Or, 2-8-24. Bryant wore the numbers 8 and 24 for the Lakers.

Bryant’s widow, Vanessa, made the announcement and the team posted it on social media.

The team shared the news on 8-24, also a day honoring Bryant.

And a look at the schedule shows the Nuggets will be the opponent for the Lakers that evening. The game is scheduled for 8:00 p.m. MST and will be broadcast on TNT.

Denver and Los Angeles will also open the season on Oct. 24 at Ball Arena, a night in which the Nuggets will get their championship rings and raise their first NBA title banner.
