As DJ Khaled made clear on the red carpet at the 62nd Grammy Awards, held on Sunday, Jan. 26 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, he's certainly among those who are still reeling from the shocking news that the NBA legend and his 13-year-old daughter Gianna were among nine who perished in a helicopter crash earlier that day in Calabasas, Calif.
As he walked the carpet, posing for photos, he held up a shirt emblazoned with the image of Bryant holding up his first No. 8 jersey at the 1996 NBA draft, where his 20-year career began as a first round pick.
