Kobe Bean Bryant could not be there in person to attend his Hall-of-Fame ceremony, but his daughter, Natalia, made sure to go in his place.
Joining legends like Tim Duncan and Kevin Garnett, Natalia stood proud to represent her father and family as the basketball world honored a legend.
For many, it was an absolutely touching moment, and Twitter was ablaze with reactions from the fans, players, and media members reflecting on the moment and Kobe's amazing life...
Nothing meant more to Kobe than his family, so it's great that they were so involved in the HOF celebrations.
And while it's obviously sad that Bryant wasn't there to wear the jacket in person, his legacy will continue to live on -- and not just in the Hall of Fame.
Thanks to his electric personality, genius mind, and "mamba" mentality, he was a guy who touched millions of people around the globe, inspiring them to work hard and fight for what they believe in.
His name will live on through his family, of course, but it will also continue to beat in the lives of the many people he touched.
Today was just another reminder of how far-reaching his impact was.
