LeBron James continues to honor the legacy of Kobe Bryant with a new tattoo.

Earlier today, the Los Angeles Lakers player unveiled his "Mamba 4 Life" snake thigh ink with the late NBA legend's jersey numbers 8 and 24. "My brother ♾#Mamba4Life #RIPKobe #RIPGiGi," he captioned.

It was posted hours before the Lakers' first game since Kobe's death where LeBron also gave him a touching tribute. "I know at some point we will have a memorial for Kobe, but I look at this as a celebration tonight. This is a celebration of the 20 years of the blood, the sweat, the tears, the broken-down body, the getting down, sitting up, the countless hours, the determination to be as great as he could be,” he began.

"Tonight we celebrate the kid that came here at 18 years of age. Retired at 38 and became probably the best dad you could have seen over the last three years. Tonight is a celebration.”

Boyz II Men and Usher were also present during the ceremony. Courtside seats were reserved for Kobe and his daughter Gianna.
