The Warriors had just left the Bay Area for a five-city East Coast road trip when Kobe Bryant tragically died in a helicopter accident Jan. 26.

So, before their first home game in two weeks, the Warriors honored Bryant's legacy with a tribute video at Chase Center.

Saturday's festivities before the game against the Lakers were all about Kobe, who died along with his daughter, Gianna, and seven others in the hills of Southern California.

Warriors star Steph Curry, who is recovering from a broken left hand, wore Kobe's No. 24 jersey under his sports coat.

The Warriors also had images of Kobe on the video board outside Chase Center, and all fans in attendance received shirts that honored the Lakers icon, his daughter and those lost in the crash.

There also were 24 seconds of silence before the game.

It was a fitting tribute for someone who had such a huge impact on the NBA and the game of basketball.
