From the king to his brother Kobe
James unveiled a new tattoo on his leg honouring Bryant who, along with his 13-year-old daughter, Gianna, and seven others, was killed in a helicopter crash outside of Los Angeles on Sunday — in an Instagram post on Friday afternoon.
The tattoo reads “Mamba 4 Life” below a black snake and a pair of roses. Bryant’s Nos. 24 and 8 sit on either side of the snake.
Lakers are also paying tribute to Kobe with a sign on their Jersey and on the floor parquet in the Staples Center where they play.
