The Los Angeles Lakers wore their "Black Mamba" jerseys, which were designed by Kobe in 2018.
"His name comes up every single day," the Lakers player told reporters ahead of Mamba Day. "We chant his name after every break, after every huddle. We always speak of his memory. We speak of his mindset, how we can attach that to our team as individuals to collectively come together for this one common goal that we're all trying to strive to get."

Even though you were younger than me, I looked up to you because of how much you sacrificed, how much you gave to this game."
