Stuart Scott's daughters visited the mural painted in his honor

ABC's Touching Tribute to Stuart Scott at NBA Finals: 'Nobody Has Done It as Well'


By John Dorn

One year ago, ESPN's Stuart Scott received the Jim Valvano Award for Perseverance at the ESPY Awards. He delivered an incredibly touching speech that concluded with one of his daughters joining him on stage for a hug.

Scott died in January at the age of 49 after a lengthy fight with cancer. Today, there's a mural dedicated to the longtime ESPN anchor in Los Angeles. Ahead of this year's ESPYs, Scott's two daughters -- Taelor and Sydni -- visited the painting.



The mural rose just days after his passing. Here's a full look, featuring his trademark catchphrase, "Boo ya!"



Scott truly changed sports media and was an idol for several members of the industry today. These past NBA Finals were the first without Scott since 1995. The memory he leaves behind is a fond one, and he'll no doubt be honored at Wednesday's ceremony.
