LeBron James Reveals New Tattoo In Tribute To Kobe Bryant

LeBron James has revealed a new tattoo in tribute to the late Kobe Bryant.

The LA Lakers player pulled up his shorts during a training session to show the image of a Black Mamba on his thigh.

The tattoo is a reference to Bryant who was known as Mamba by fans and friends around the world.

Fellow Lakers player Anthony Davis also commemorated the NBA legend and posted a video on his Instagram page of him getting a tattoo done.

"I literally just heard your voice Sunday morning before I left Philly to head back to LA. Didn't think for one bit in a million years that would be the last conversation we'd have. WTF!!
