Petition to change NBA logo after death of Kobe Bryant

A petition was put out the day of Kobe Bryants death claiming the NBA needs to change their logo to look like Kobe. A guy going by the username Nick M stated in the petition

With the untimely and unexpected passing of the great Kobe Bryant please sign this petition in an attempt to immortalize him forever as the new NBA Logo.

As of 12:17pm Eastern on January 28th, 2020 it has 1,920,217 signatures.

The current NBA logo, a man in silhouette dribbling a basketball, is meant to be the likeness of Jerry West, another legendary Laker. 3 years ago Jerry had this to say about the logo on ESPN

Is it really time to change the logo now that a legend has died? Who is more deserving for the logo? Does it even have to look like an actual player?
