Lakers' opt to retire both Kobe jerseys

LOS ANGELES—Although Kobe Bryant has been asked many times, he still isn't sure who would win a mystical game of one-on-one between the young Kobe in his No. 8 Lakers' jersey and his older self, who wore No. 24.

“I kind of go back and forth,” Bryant said with a sly grin.

“But 8 has something that 24 will never, ever, ever have and that's the ability to grow hair.”
