Kobe Bryant’s No. 8 and No. 24 aren’t officially retired by every team in the NBA, but they might as well be. Some players who wear No. 8 or No. 24 are proactively changing their numbers as a tribute to Bryant, according to Shams Charania.

My understanding is that they are flooding the social media sites, emails and other avenues with so much misinformation, that a lot of causally involved voters will never know the difference.
