"Nothing like a good Sunday night cry," tweeted another person. One fan praised Snoop Dogg for the song and said, "thank you, Snoop Dogg, for paying tribute, Kobe. Kobe was not only a great basketball but a great father and a human being."

The tribute comes only days after Kobe's wife, Vanessa Bryant, and her children celebrated their youngest, Capri Kobe Bryant's first birthday.
