According to a report from the Los Angeles Times, the Los Angeles Lakers plan to wear a special ‘Black Mamba’ jersey to honor Kobe Bryant if they advance in the NBA Playoffs.

“If the Lakers advance past the first round of the playoffs against the Portland Trail Blazers, they plan to wear the Black Mamba jersey in honor of Kobe Bryant during the following rounds, according to people who were not authorized to speak publicly on the matter.

The jersey was co-designed by Bryant and it features a snakeskin print on the outside with black interior and 16 stars on the side panels. The Lakers have won 16 NBA championships, and Bryant played on five of those title-winning teams.”

Here is a look at the ‘Black Mamba’ jersey that Kobe helped design.

Kobe, along with his daughter Gianna and seven others, died in a helicopter crash in January.
