Kobe Bryant was honored at Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Sports Awards 2016 on Thursday night, taking home a Legend Award.
Bryant played in the NBA for 20 years, spending the entirety of that time period with the Lakers. The award he received on Thursday was “in recognition of his record-breaking achievements, unrivaled talent and outstanding sportsmanship on and off the basketball court.”
Bryant gave a nice speech after accepting the award, and, fittingly, was doused in golden slime when it was over, in true Nickelodeon fashion.

And in case you want to watch a clip of Bryant getting slimed over and over, here you go.
It’s been a busy week for Bryant, who, at the ESPYs on Wednesday, also won the Icon Award (along with Peyton Manning and Abby Wambach).
