Since Nipsey's death Smith has made multiple Instagram posts in his memory. When news broke on Sunday about Nipsey's murder players from all sports jumped on social media to share their condolences and pay respects to the iconic man.

On Tuesday, Russell Westbrook earned the second ever 20-20-20 triple double in the Thunder's 119-103 victory over the Lakers and said he dedicated the performance to Nipsey.

"20 plus 20 plus 20 they know what that means," Westbrook said to TNT's Jason Terry postgame, explaining the correlation between his statistics and Nipsey.

Baron Davis, who also grew up in Los Angeles like Westbrook, spoke about Nipsey's importance to the community later in the night.

Nipsey Hussle died at 33 and is survived by his girlfriend Lauren London and two children.
