Oscar De La Hoya was no different than all of the others who were stunned, and in disbelief, when Bryant died. A hero, in his own right, the famed boxer took to action. Immediately, he called the management of the STAPLES Center to make an offer.

During a recent interview with Big Boy, on “Big Boy’s Neighborhood,” Oscar De La Hoya said he spoke with STAPLES Center’s CEO. He offered a proposal to them, which they turned down. De La Hoya said he offered to have them remove his statue in favor of one in Kobe Bryant’s honor.
