People all over the world have been paying tribute to NBA legend Kobe Bryant after he sadly passed away on Sunday and gamers have found their own brilliant and unique ways of paying tribute.

Tributes have been pouring in ever since from all over the world for a star who transcended his sport and gamers have joined in by doing some incredible things on NBA 2K20.
One group all wore LA Lakers shirts in honour of the former Laker:

Other fans paid tribute to the former number 24 by letting the 24 second shot clock play out, much like many teams did in the NBA on Sunday, with matches going on as the news broke in the US.
As well as running down the shot clock in their game, San Antonio Spurs paid tribute by holding a minute's silence before tip off against the Toronto Raptors.
Speaking after the match Spurs' coach Gregg Popovich said, "All of us know what a great player he was, but he went beyond great playing. He was a competitor - that goes unmatched. It's what made him as a player so attractive to everybody - that focus, that competitiveness, that will to win. And even more importantly than that, we all feel a deep sense of loss for what he meant to all of us in so many ways, and so many millions of people loved him for so many different reasons. It's just a tragic thing."
