Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James honors the late Kobe Bryant, Nipsey Hussle with a portrait in the hallway of his LA home.
LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers returned home after being out on the road for two games. The Lakers split their two games, losing to the Nuggets in the first, and then beating the Wolves for the second. The Lakers now have a 22-7 record and sit 2 games behind the top-seeded Utah Jazz.
Upon their arrival home, the Lakeshow will face their possibly acclaimed matchup for this year’s NBA Finals, the Brooklyn Nets. However, the Lakers would have to do it without their star big man Anthony Davis. He has been ruled out till the All-Star Break due to an Achilles injury.

LeBron James has always been a sentimental person and usually lets his emotions known to the people. He was close friends with the late rapper Nipsey Hussle.
He is often seen singing along to Hussle’s music in his stories on Instagram. LeBron was among the few people who vowed to honor Nipsey’s legacy. LBJ often uses ‘#TheMarathonContinues” in his posts, honoring the late rapper’s 2011 mixtape.
As for Kobe Bryant, it is no secret how close James and Kobe were. The friendship and the brotherhood the two shared went beyond the court. They spent years dueling against each other in the NBA and playing together for Team USA.
LeBron got a portrait made of the two from an artist named Lindsay Dawn, who runs her own gallery. He captioned his post as “Wit me every single day when walking my hallways. & Continues to live on!”

Ever since Kobe’s passing, LeBron has actively refused to talk about anything related to the media. The King does however post about the Black Mamba every now and then.
