Though Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan are representing his beloved Toronto Raptors, Drizzy honored No. 24 during the future Hall of Famer's last All-Star Game.
Bryant will surely appreciate the gesture. After all these years, Drake is still with him shooting in the gym.

Drizzy paid it forward after its debut in Toronto, gifting the jacket to a good friend of his: Stephen Curry.
The rapper referred to the Golden State Warriors star as "his guy," explaining the story during the Raptors-Portland Trail Blazers game broadcast on Friday:
