Teams and players around the NBA paid tribute to former Los Angeles Lakers great Kobe Bryant as the league's slate of Sunday. A true global superstar, the depth of Bryant's popularity quickly surfaced as reports were confirmed that Bryant had been killed along with his daughter Gianna and seven others when his helicopter crashed in a remote field near the city of Calabasas. Where Bryant's death hit close to home was on the basketball courts, where his skill and personality made him one of world's most recognisable and popular athletes and several players could be seen with messages to Kobe written on their sneakers.
