Netflix Show 'Stranger Things' Pays Homage to Kobe Bryant

Stranger Things was first released on 15th July 2016 with season 4 volume 1 being released on 27th May, 2022.

Lucas From Stranger Things Dawned Kobe's Jersey Number to honor the black mamba.

Lucas was being played by Caleb McLaughlin who was a huge fan of the Laker great.


In the show, Lucas is a nerdy character who joined the basketball team to combat that.

Lucas rode the bench till the last game and never got an opportunity to play.

However, in the last game the episode of Vol 1, Lucas got in the game and made the game-winning shot.

Stranger Things Season 4 Vol 2 will come out on 1st July 2022 and we'll hopefully get to see more of his performance this season.

Seeing him make the game-winner was Kobe-esque, a clear move made by the directors.

Was this one of the best ways to pay homage to Kobe on this show?
