LeBron James continues to search for ways to honor the Los Angeles Lakers legend.
Twenty-twenty has been a horrible year for many reasons. However, before the Coronavirus and unpleasant acts of police brutality across the country, Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gianna died in a helicopter crash on January 26. It was a truly shocking tragedy that made basketball fans around the world cry. It’s hard to believe the news is still real, even though exactly six months have passed since the event.
Over the past few months, numerous basketball players have offered tributes to Kobe, especially LeBron James, who currently plays for the former Kobe franchise, Los Angeles Lakers. With the NBA reboot on the horizon, LeBron is back on the court for some scrimmages, and once again, he is paying tribute to one of his inspirations. As you can see in the image below, LeBron wears a finger band that has the Kobe number 24 on it. The band is purple and the number is gold, which lends itself well to the Lakers’ motif.
The rest of the Lakers season has been devoted to Kobe and it would certainly be bittersweet if they could continue and end up winning the championship. We are sure that Kobe would be especially proud if they did.
