O'Shea Jackson, Jr. wore five Lakers championship rings at the Grammys to honor Kobe Bryant

New, comment

Another tribute for the soon-to-retire superstar.

Kobe Bryant received plenty of love during his final All-Star weekend. The exhibition in Toronto doubled as a celebration of Bryant's 20 year career, with Magic Johnson even leading a special introduction just for Kobe before the game began on Sunday night.

But it's not just players Bryant's legacy has had an impact on. Fans both globally and locally in Los Angeles have connected with Kobe over his storied career and have made gestures of appreciation of their own. O'Shea Jackson, Jr., better known as Ice Cube's son who also played his father in the movie "Straight Outta Compton," was a presenter at the Grammys on Monday night in Staples Center and paid a tribute of his own to Bryant on stage. The actor wore five (probably replica) Los Angeles Lakers championship rings on stage, an homage to the five championships Bryant won during his time with the Lakers.

Jackson, Jr. took to Twitter afterwards to confirm that the rings were indeed a sign of respect to Bryant in "his house."

When you're a five-time champion who will have played 20 years with the same franchise, the tributes just keep rolling.
