Bryant and his 13-year-old daughter Gianna were among the nine people killed in January 26, in a helicopter crash, west of Los Angeles. According to reports, the chopper was flying under cloudy conditions.

The legend had a huge fan following within the Sikh community. A basketball Twitter account posted a photo of the Gurudwara, where the Sikhs were praying for Bryant.

The tweet said, "Sikhs praying for Kobe and the victims at the temple. This hits home. Kobe Bryant was a household name in every Sikh home. Your grandpa and grandma didn't know what hoop was, but they knew Kobe. They know how special he was."

Bryant and his daughter were buried last week in California, near the family home. The former Los Angeles Lakers man leaves behind his wife Vanessa.
