Drone Shows Spanish Town Painting Kobe Bryant on Basketball Court.

The Spanish city of Balaguer in northeastern Spain paid tribute to Kobe Bryant by painting an image of the legendary basketball star in classic yellow and purple - colors of the Los Angeles Lakers team - on a municipal basketball court.

The project is the work of Catalan artist Llukuter.

Bryant died in 2020 at age 41 in a helicopter crash, along with his 13-year-old daughter Gianna, and seven others on board.
