The Nets paid tribute to Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gianna prior to Wednesday night’s game against the Pistons. 

They showed a highlight reel of the Lakers legend and placed flowers on the seats that the two would sit in when they watched games in Brooklyn.

After the game Kyrie Irving got a little emotional talking about the death of one of his mentors.
