Before the Warriors hosted the Lakers on Saturday night, Steph Curry was spotted honoring the late Kobe Bryant by wearing his No. 24 jersey under his sport coat.

Curry kept the jersey on throughout the game as he sat on the bench cheering on the Warriors.
Steph posed with fans for pictures ahead of the Warriors' first game home since the tragic death of Bryant, his daughter Gianna, and seven others when they were killed in a helicopter crash in Calabasas, Calif. on Jan. 26.
The Warriors will honor the late basketball legend by giving out shirts with both Kobe's and Gigi's numbers on them.
The No. 8 and 24 are sported in Lakers purple and gold with 13-year-old Gianna's No. 2. There are also nine stars under the jersey numbers in remembrance of all nine lives lost in the crash.
Steph took a while to go public with how he felt about losing his friend Kobe. They were former All-Star teammates and Curry knew how important the legend was both on and off the court.
