Kobe played more games in the No. 8 jersey, 707 to 638. But his averages were much higher in the No. 24 jersey.

He averaged 26.2 points per game after the jersey change compared to 23.7 before. He has scored roughly the same amount of points in each jersey, 16,866 before to 16,717 after.

Kobe led the league in field goal attempts six times in his career—five came in the No. 24 jersey. And despite the increased shot volume as No. 24, his field goal percentage hardly went down—from .451 to .443. This gives No. 24 a slight edge in the stats department.

No. 24 leads 1-0.
