Rather than an emotional, elegiac tone, Dre’s video features a bumping hip-hop score matched with energetic images of Bryant playing during his dominant run with the Los Angeles Lakers.

Also featured is footage of the player with his family, including daughter Gianna, who died with him in the helicopter crash that claimed the lives of nine people.

Following Dre’s video, Bryant received a live tribute at the game from NBA great Magic Johnson, as well as emotional performances from Jennifer Hudson, Queen Latifah and Common.
