LeBron James has revealed his brand new tattoo honoring the Los Angeles Lakers legend Kobe Bryant. After Kobe’s tragic death, everybody started to show their love for the five-time NBA champion and Bron hasn’t been the exception.
On Thursday, James was seen with a new tattoo on his leg during the Lakers’ training session on a football field. It was reported that the piece was aimed to honor Kobe Bryant. Today, James has finally introduced the piece to the world.
With an Instagram post, Bron remembered Kobe, captioning the post ‘My brother ♾ #Mamba4Life #RIPKobe #RIPGiGi’ with two pics, one of him and Kobe and the tattoo in question.
It is a Black Mamba with two roses in the background, the numbers 8 and 24 on the sides and ‘Mamba 4 Life’ written under the snake.
LeBron showed how affected he was with this news as soon as he heard about it. Only a few hours before the tragic incident that killed Kobe, his daughter Gianna and seven other people, James had surpassed the Lakers legend on the All-Time scoring list.
The King is set to bring another title to Los Angeles this year and that tattoo will surely serve as a great motivation.
