Novak wore a “KB” embroidered on his jacket, as well as the numbers 8 and 24 in honor of Kobe, calling him “close in my life” and a “mentor.”

“This is a reminder to all of us that we should stick together, now more than ever, being with our families, stay close with the people that love you…of course, we are part of a professional sport. We compete and try our best, but obviously there are more important things in life. It’s important to be conscious and humble about things that are happening around you,” he said after his win.
