LeBron James Honors Kobe Bryant With Special Post On Instagram After NBA Championship Win
As you all know, LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers won the 2020 NBA championship back on Sunday. We don’t want to say it was easy for them, ’cause it wasn’t, but they sure made it look easy.
James had an incredible postseason and put up some truly ridiculous numbers, especially for a 35-year-old. Obviously 35 isn’t old in normal life, but on the basketball court? When you’re competing against dudes in their early 20s? It’s something special.
After some much needed rest for a few days, James went on his Instagram account to pay tribute to Kobe Bryant. The entire Lakers team dedicated this season to him after his tragic helicopter crash back in January.
In January, James tweeted out, “I promise you I’ll continue your legacy man!” and it looks like he’s making good on that promise.
On Wednesday, James posted a shot of him sitting with Kobe’s jersey.
James also shared snapshots of the duo along. He closed out the slideshow with a picture of the NBA championship trophy after the Los Angeles Lakers won.
The Lakers made Kobe proud. No question about it. James is a great leader for the NBA to have. A true superstar.
By the way, Kobe’s final tweet before his death was a congratulatory message for James after he surpassed him for the No. 3 spot on the NBA’s all-time scoring list.
Continuing to move the game forward @KingJames. Much respect my brother 💪🏾 #33644— Kobe Bryant (@kobebryant) January 26, 2020
