Earlier in the week, James posted a special message on social media describing just what Bryant meant to him and the city of Los Angeles.
“I’m Not Ready but here I go,” he wrote.
“Man I sitting here trying to write something for this post but every time I try I begin crying again just thinking about you, niece Gigi and the friendship/bond/brotherhood we had!” James said on the post.
“I literally just heard your voice Sunday morning before I left Philly to head back to LA. Didn’t think for one bit in a million years that would be the last conversation we’d have,” he continued.
“WTF!! I’m heartbroken and devastated my brother!! Man I love you big bro. My heart goes to Vanessa and the kids. I promise you I’ll continue your legacy man!
“You mean so much to us all here especially #LakerNation and it’s my responsibility to put this shit on my back and keep it going!!
“Please give me the strength from the heavens above and watch over me! I got US here! There’s so much more I want to say but just can’t right now because I can’t get through it! Until we meet again my brother!! #Mamba4Life #Gigi4Life.”
James and the Lakers will play in their first game since Bryant’s passing on Friday night when they host the Portland Trail Blazers.
They were originally supposed to play the Los Angeles Clippers earlier this week, but the game was cancelled to give all involved a chance to grieve Bryant’s death.
