The jersey itself comes from Bryant's 2008 MVP campaign. His Lakers won Game 5, but lost the series to the Boston Celtics. Bryant scored 25 points on 8-of-21 shooting for the night.

The museum's website describes the exhibit as one rooted in the cultural impact athletes can have. "Sports: Leveling the Playing Field explores the contributions of athletes, both on and off the field.

The Lakers held a ceremony in his honor before their first game following the accident, and later hosted a public memorial at Staples Center. The team wore jersey patches in his honor as they continued toward their 17th NBA championship.
