During tonight’s NBA matchup between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Golden State Warriors, both teams decided to pay tribute to the fallen rapper Nipsey Hussle.

“Entrepreneur, rapper, and community activist Nipsey Hussle tragically passed away at the age of 33,” the announcer said. “From his work within locals schools, creating business in L.A., and promoting better life choices, Nipsey had a lasting impact on bettering our entire Los Angeles community. Please join the Warriors, the Lakers, and the entire NBA family in a moment of silence for the late Nipsey Hussle.”

Hussle’s music was also played during warm-up to which Kevin Durant and Draymond Green danced along to, while LeBron James showed up to pregame rocking a Nipsey shirt.

The Lakers and Warriors aren’t the only ones spreading love for Hussle. During a recent Clippers game, the team also paid respects to the rapper with a short video tribute and by hanging a No. 5 jersey in the locker room. Hussle was an avid basketball fan.

Earlier this week Nipsey Hussle’s girlfriend and sister also paid tribute to the late rapper.
