Spike Lee Honored Kobe Bryant At This Year's Oscars


Spike Lee honored Kobe Bryant at tonight's Oscars with a custom look on the red carpet.

The purple suit featured a gold trim β€” purple and gold are Lakers colors β€” and Kobe's jersey number, 24, embroidered on the front lapels... well as on the back.

He finished the look off with a pair of Nike's Kobe 9 high-top sneakers.

Spike was not only a huge Kobe fan, but he also directed the 2009 sports documentary Kobe Doin' Work.

An official tribute to the late NBA star β€” who won an Oscar in 2018 for his animated short film Dear Basketball β€” will take place during this year's ceremony.

What a touching tribute.
