Kobe Bryant’s widow Vanessa shared a look at the Los Angeles Lakers jerseys they plan to wear on 8/24 to honor him. The "Black Mamba" alternative jerseys will be worn for Game 4 of their playoff series against the Portland Trail Blazers.
Expect the emotions to be running high that day. It's going to ratchet up the intensity of an already intense playoff series. The Lakers are hoping the brooms will be out for that game as well.

It's hard to believe that Kobe's death was this year. It feels like two or three years ago with everything that's gone on.
Unfortunately it was just the beginning of a long line of bullshit shoveled our way. I sure as hell hope 2021 has something better in store.
