The Los Angeles Lakers will retire Kobe Bryant's No. 8 and No. 24 jerseys during halftime of Monday's game against the Golden State Warriors at Staples Center. 

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Stefon Diggs offered his own tribute to the basketball legend ahead of Sunday's matchup with the Cincinnati Bengals at U.S. Bank Stadium. 

Diggs rocked customized Bryant cleats during pregame warm-ups. The kicks featured the Lakers' traditional black and yellow, with the laces representing the purple portion of the famous jerseys.

Diggs and his teammates will hope some Mamba Mentality helps push them to a division title. 

Update: Diggs found the end zone halfway through the second quarter of the contest, and he honored Bryant with the perfect celebration for the moment:
