Last night the Los Angeles Lakers paid tribute to one of the greatest to ever wear the purple and gold, retiring not one but two jersey numbers for Kobe Bryant. To coincide with the occasion, Nike has seen fit to bring back its highly entertaining puppet commercials with Kobe and LeBron James.

The Swoosh this week unleashed three new clips centering around Bryant and his greatness, as well as his now-retired number 8 and number 24 jerseys. We then find Kobe and Bron discussing both numbers and which Kobe is better.
