Kobe and Gianna honored during Pelicans-Celtics game
NEW ORLEANS- Just before the New Orleans Pelicans faced the Boston Celtics they made sure to pay tribute to the fallen basketball legend, Kobe Byrant and his daughter Gianna in a few ways.
Kobe and Gianna were among nine people that died in a private helicopter crash Sunday morning.
First during the national anthem, the Pelicans players each wore a pair of Kobe's with, "RIP Kobe and RIP Giana," written along the shoe with their numbers 8, and 24. Then they held a 24 second moment of silence.
To add both teams took a 24-second shot clock violation to start the game off.
