During his jersey retirement speech, Dwyane paid tribute to Kobe Bryant. On January 26, the former Lakers star and his daughter, Gianna, were among the nine victims that died in a devastating helicopter crash. “Kobe said the most important thing is to try to inspire others so they can be great in whatever they choose to do. I hope I’ve inspired all of you,” he said. “Thank you for making me a part of your legacy. Please know you are a huge part of mine. God bless you all. Heat Nation, I love you, thank you.”

He continued, “Kobe was leading the way — he retired and showed us in his next act after retirement that you can master that, as well. He mastered basketball, he mastered being an amazing father, he mastered being a husband, he mastered being a creator. He was showing us the way, and now we don’t have that. So, I do have a responsibility to be that guy and show the way for the next generation.”
