Adam Levine's video began with a commentator tagging the then 18-year-old Kobe, in his first NBA season as being as good as the legends of the game, and probably better than them.

The Maroon 5 song, "Memories" then began playing in the background with clips of Kobe's majestic NBA moments and his famous quote about hard work, also playing in the background.

Adam Levine's video ended with a clip of Kobe kissing his wife, Vanessa while carrying little Gigi in his arms and then a dark screen showing Kobe and Gigi's names. One heartbroken fan, after watching Levine's video, said:

Adam Levine also paid tribute to Kobe Bryant on Super Bowl eve. He performed at Miami's American Airlines Arena, with country music duo, "Day + Shay," also performing.

While he and members of the Maroon 5 band performed, Levine held up a Lakers no. 24 shirt, waved it at the screaming crowd, and as the stage turned purple for "Memories," said:

"I don't know if I will make it through this one with my emotions intact...Needless to say, I think we know who this song is dedicated to."
