Last year, Lee similarly used his Oscars outfit to pay tribute to the late music icon Prince with a purple suit and gold necklace.

In 2009, Lee directed the TV documentary “Kobe Doin’ Work”, in which he followed Bryant around for a single day as he prepared to face off against the San Antonio Spurs. And, of course Bryant won the Best Animated Short Oscar for his film “Dear Basketball” in 2018.
