NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has confirmed that the NFL will pay a tribute to the late basketball legend, Kobe Bryant, during this week's Super Bowl LIV. 

 "I don't think just Los Angeles is mourning the loss of Kobe Bryant. Kobe was a special person," Goodell told reporters.

He added, "I did have the opportunity to meet him. He obviously brought a lot to our world and I think all of us not only feel for the tragic events to his family but as well as everyone else who was a passenger on that helicopter. It's hard to understand, and it's hard to process."

The Super Bowl is the largest sports event of the year in America, perhaps even in the world, so the league needs to make sure that the tribute is worthy of Bryant and his daughter Gianna, otherwise, the wrath of social media will rain down upon them.

We pray that they get it right!
