In the last two nights, the style of the players' pre-match "parades" had a common denominator: the memory of Kobe Bryant. A year ago he left us one of the best players ever, in that tragic helicopter crash that upset the lives of many. The outfits on and off the court of many players are dedicated to the Black Mamba.

Under Armor is very active - and the new Curry Brand - with many athletes who have been able to show off custom versions of the models of the Baltimore company. A major block of Golden State Warriors players - formed by Damion Lee, Kent Bazemore and of course Steph Curry - took to the court with images of Kobe and Gianna Bryant on the new UA. Joel Embiid does the same, with the 2, 24 and 8 printed on his "Origin". Curry's dedication is very special, which focuses on the father who was Kobe rather than on the player who changed the league. The hashtag #GirlDad joins photos of Bryant and his daughters and of Steph himself with his two girls. Donovan Mitchell also uses #24 on his special D.O.N. Issue #2.

The NBA outfits were also homages to the Lakers legend. The first comes from Brooklyn, where the Hamletic Kyrie Irving proudly and proudly displays a decidedly vintage Mamba jersey with the #8. Two Rockets players also replicate: both PJ Tucker and Victor Oladipo arrive at the arena with two very special Kobe game jerseys. Tucker - the best sneakerhead in the NBA hands down - also adds a customized version of the Air Force 1 in purple-and-gold. In a more sober way, Wayne Ellington (Pistons) and Terance Mann (Clippers) arrive at the appointment with t-shirts dedicated to Kobe.
