Lebron James Shows Off His New Kobe Bryant Tattoo [PHOTOS]

By Benny Franklin

It's been a really rough week since we lost Kobe Bryant, his daughter and seven other people to a horrible helicopter crash in Calabasas, California.

Since the tragic accident, tributes and memories have been pouring in; from friends, fans, celebrities and more. 

One of those celebrities is NBA star, Lebron James.

Lebron and Kobe had a special relationship that really developed over the last few years, and it's evident in LBJ's recent Instagram post. 

In the post, it shows Lebron and Kobe sitting courtside on the bench, and Lebron has his head on Kobe's shoulder. In the second picture, it shows a brand new tattoo Lebron received that shows a black snake, the words "Mamba 4 Life" and the numbers 24 and 8.
