2K Joins The Rest Of The World In Tribute To Basketball Legend Kobe Bryant

KobeBryant

As people all over the world slowly comes to terms with the tragic news of basketball legend Kobe Bryant’s passing yesterday, tributes are being paid across the globe to the five-time NBA champion. Both Bryant and one of his daughters, Gianna, were among the nine people who lost their lives in a helicopter crash in California yesterday.

Bryant had a 20-year career in the sport with a legacy that crosses all media, including video games. A great many of us will fondly recall playing as the LA Lakers legend many times since his first appearance back on the Super NES in NBA Live 97. Of course, it wasn’t long until he became the marquee star in Kobe Bryant in NBA Courtside – the youngest player to have his name on a game at just 19 years of age – and that Nintendo 64 game was soon followed up with NBA Courtside 2: Featuring Kobe Bryant. He’s been a fixture of NBA games ever since.

2K, the makers of the the NBA 2K series, have updated the latest game NBA 2K20 to display the tribute below across all platforms:


The game’s official Twitter account also joined the many people across social media paying tribute to the man with the following message:


As people across the world have woken to this sad news, we’re certain we’ll see many more tributes throughout the week and beyond to a sportsman who touched the lives of many millions throughout his career. Our thoughts are with his wife and surviving children, and the other families who lost loved ones in this incident.
