In the photo depicted, Bryant offered a peaceful protest in December 2014 during another tumultuous time in the nation.

The current racial protests are sparked by the death of an African-American man, George Floyd, in Minnesota on last Monday night. The five-time champion’s shirt referenced an incident in New York that also resulted in death of an African-American named Eric Garner.

Nance, 27, started his career with the Lakers in 2015. The same season marked the final year of Bryant’s iconic 20-year run in the NBA.

In January, Bryant passed away in a tragic helicopter accident. While the father of four isn’t around anymore, his legacy is still being honored.

Obviously, his legacy and impact still lives with Nance today.
