LeBron James Rocks Kobe Bryant Tribute Jersey To Lakers Playoff Game
James lebron has that Mamba mentality on Kobe bryant day … wearing a Mamba tribute jersey en route to face the Blazers in Game 4 of their playoff series.
LBJ entered the building sporting a limited edition Bryant tribute jersey … with the number 24 on the back and the number 8 on the front.
Nike only offered a small number of these custom jerseys on its website on Monday – but James has some edge there.
The Lakers have a much bigger tribute planned for the game – the entire team will be wearing special Black Mamba jerseys, which were actually designed by Kobe a few years before his passing.
The jerseys feature a snakeskin pattern and a special patch on the shoulder to honor Gianna bryant.
LeBron and Kobe were extremely close – James got a Kobe tribute tattoo on his thigh following his death. He also has gave an emotional address to Laker Nation in the first home game after the tragedy.
But don’t expect the Portland Trail Blazers to just let the Lakers crush them – Damian lillard Also hopes to honor Kobe tonight by playing his ass and fighting for a win just like Kobe would have liked.
Our sincere thanks to
