This tribute was paid on February 6, 2020, emphasis on 2/6, like 26.
Once again, ‘Bryant’ sums to 26, and Kobe Bryant reportedly died on the 26th of January, the anniversary of Bear Bryant’s death, and one day after LeBron James passed Kobe in points scored, in Kobe’s hometown, Philly, which came 26-days after LeBron’s December 30, 2019 birthday.
Notice Kobe’s dunk was against the Sacramento Kings, not to be confused with King James, aka LeBron, who played his first career game versus the Kings. As for the dunks being 19-years apart, the ‘King’ ritual fits.
Another thing worth mentioning is that Kobe’s dunk came on November 18, the 322nd day of the year. And from the last anniversary of Kobe’s dunk, to LeBron’s tribute, was a span of 81-days, a familiar number with Kobe fans.
