Kobe Bryant tributes poured in yesterday from the moment the news of his death in a tragic helicopter accident was reported.
Players opened games Sunday with eight- and 24-second violations in Bryant’s honor, as those were the numbers that he wore when playing in the NBA.
Not every team played on Sunday, though, so several teams are playing on Monday for the first time since Bryant’s death.
The Detroit Pistons and Cleveland Cavaliers were the first two teams to take the floor on Monday, and the Pistons delivered the first major tribute to Bryant.
When they took off their warm up gear for pre-game introductions, the Pistons were wearing custom black uniforms.
On the back, each featured either No. 8 or No. 24 and the name Bryant.
