Every single photo we took of Spike Lee's Kobe Bryant tribute suit”

It has been just over two weeks since Kobe Bryant tragically lost his life on January 26 along with his daughter Gianna Bryant and seven others.

HOLLYWOOD, CALIFORNIA - FEBRUARY 09: (L-R) Finneas O'Connell and Billie Eilish perform onstage during the 92nd Annual Academy Awards at Dolby Theatre on February 09, 2020 in Hollywood, California.

During the "In Memoriam" tribute, other notable actors, artists and contributors to the world of cinema who died in the past year were remembered.

Later in the show, Matthew A. Cherry dedicated his award for Best Animated Short Film to Kobe as well. His creation was inspired by the letter - through which he announced his retirement - he wrote to The Players' Tribune in 2015.

Kirk Douglas, John Singleton, Rip Torn, Danny Aiello, Peter Fonda and Anna Karina were among those mentioned. Though he was renowned for his basketball talent, Kobe Bryant was also an Oscar-winning filmmaker.

A known New York Knicks fan and a native of the south, Lee paying homage to Kobe shows us just how much the future Hall of Famer meant to pretty much every basketball fan.

Kobe Bryant, who won an Oscar in 2018, was celebrated at the show once again two years later, just two weeks after his tragic death.

He also discussed creating "Dear Basketball" during an appearance on "Good Morning America" at the time of its premiere in 2017. "You know, spreading love is the Brooklyn way", the director added.
