CLEVELAND, Ohio (WJW) — Terminal Tower was lit up in purple and gold Sunday night and Monday morning to pay tribute to former NBA superstar Kobe Bryant.

Bryant, his 13-year-old daughter Gianna, and seven other people were killed in a helicopter crash near Los Angeles Sunday morning.

Bryant spent his entire career as a member of the L.A. Lakers.

In a tweet posted from the “Terminal Tower” Twitter account at 10:15 p.m. Sunday, a picture showed the building was lit up in the Lakers colors of purple and gold to pay tribute to Bryant.

The post included a gold and purple heart — along with a snake emoji to represent Bryant’s self-given nickname as the “Black Mamba.” The post also had several hashtags including #Kobe, #RIPMamba, #RIPKobe, #RIPKobeBryant, #countyourblessings, #ThisIsCLE, and #Cavs.
