Kobe Bryant was in attendance in the LA Lakers’ victory over the Atlanta Hawks (122-101) and received a standing ovation at Staples Center.

Bryant was shown on the big screen with 4:25 left in the first half and rose to acknowledge a standing ovation.

That was just one of many instances in which the crowd revered having him in the building.
