Kobe Bryant Tribute

Spike Lee honors Kobe Bryant with custom suit at The 92nd Academy Awards

LOS ANGELES (AP) — On an Oscars red carpet filled with dramatic dresses and designer tuxedos, Spike Lee wore clothing that made a personal statement, paying tribute to the Kobe Bryant in a Lakers-purple jacket with the late basketball star’s 24 on its lapels and on the back.

A longtime New York Knicks fan known for his love of the game, Lee won his first Academy Award last year for Best Adapted Screenplay (BlacKkKlansman) and was set to present on Sunday.
