Los Angeles Lakers legend Kobe Bryant accomplished a number of great things during his 20-year professional career and the sports world honored him for those achievements on Wednesday night at the ESPY Awards.

As you can see from the video clip above, Bryant was one of three athletes to receive the Icon Award and the five-time NBA champion made it known to those in attendance, and watching from the comfort of their own homes, that he's not done making an impact on the world just yet.

Lakers fans will always appreciate Kobe for everything that he's done for the Purple and Gold but it is very cool to see the rest of the sports world come together to show him the respect that he deserves.
