During this weekend’s 69th annual NBA All-Star game, the late Kobe Bryant was on everyone’s mind as a Jennifer Hudson, Magic Johnson and Common tribute to the fallen all-star kicked off the night.

Johnson led an eight-second moment of silence for his longtime friend, followed by Hudson performing her rendition of “For All We Know (We May Meet Again)” in front of a giant photograph of Bryant in his signature Lakers uniform. Common soon followed with a rap dedicated to the star player.

“A king named Kobe Bryant,” Common rapped as the arena lights lit up with the colors purple and gold. “Even in the darkest times, you’ll feel Kobe’s light.”

Johnson also lent a few kind words to the legacy that Bryant left behind.
“What I’m really proud about when we think about Kobe Bryant, there’s millions of people in Los Angeles that don’t have a home. Kobe was fighting to get them homes and shelter every single day. He was passionate about that. He was also passionate about being a great father, husband, filmmaker. Young man won an Oscar. So we all are hurting. This is a tough time for the whole NBA family.”

While the private funeral for Bryant and his daughter, Gianna, has already taken place, a public memorial is set to honor the basketball player, his daughter and the other seven lives who were lost in a helicopter crash on January 26th.
