It’s been four weeks of Kobe Bryant’s death in a helicopter crash that killed him and either others, including his 13-year-old daughter Gianna, in Calabasas, Calif.
And NBA legend Bill Russell paid tribute to the late superstar at Sunday’s Boston Celtics-Los Angeles Lakers matchup.
The 86-year-old Celtics great appeared at Staples Center a few hours prior to tip-off sporting a No. 24 Kobe Bryant jersey. (We know Russell in a Lakers jersey isn’t something C’s fans typically would want to see, but this is pretty awesome.)
