Stefon Diggs honors Kobe Bryant with cleats, celebration

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Stefon Diggs turned Sunday’s game into a tribute to Kobe Bryant.

With the Los Angeles Lakers poised to retire Bryant’s jersey numbers on Monday, Diggs saw fit to use the weekend as an opportunity to honor the NBA star. First, he wore a pair of custom cleats, nodding to the iconic Lakers gold — and the purple that both Minnesota and Los Angeles share.

Diggs wasn’t done there. After scoring a touchdown against the Cincinnati Bengals, it was time for a full-blown Bryant-themed celebration.

Diggs and the Vikings probably won’t have Bryant’s support in the NFC playoffs, but he’ll likely appreciate the gesture all the same.
