J.J. Watt pays tribute to Kobe Bryant on 'Saturday Night Live'

J.J. Watt, defensive end for the Houston Texans and host of this weekend’s “Saturday Night Live,” paid tribute to Kobe Bryant during the show’s sendoff.

Wearing a white Lakers jersey bearing Bryant’s 24, Watt took a piece of paper from his pocket, crumpled it and shot it into the air. As he greeted “SNL” cast members, with his back to the stage, Bryant’s name was visible.

The show commemorated the moment on its official Twitter account, using heart emojis in Lakers team colors.

Watt was one of the many celebrities who took to social media to grieve the basketball star after he died Jan. 26.
