NBA team, Los Angeles Lakers, recently took home its 17th championship title in a move that excited most, if not all of their fans across the world.
It is important to note that the Lakers beat the Miami Heat on Sunday, October 11, in Game 6 of the NBA finals.
Many people spared their time to honour the team for their win as they celebrated the title.
Among people who joined the group of Lakers fans in honouring the team's win was none other than American rapper Snoop Dogg.
The rapper not only paid tribute to the team for the victory but also one of its iconic players of all times, Kobe Bryant who died tragically in January 2020.
Snoop thought it wise to pay homage to his late friend Kobe Bryant and the Los Angeles Lakers with a bold commitment.
Snoop ''sacrificed'' his entire forearm which got tattoed with a detailed ink tribute featuring Kobe Bryant’s initials, the NBA championship trophy, the Lakers team logo and the gates of heaven.
Legit.ng has learnt the rapper sought the services of tattoo artist Mister Cartoon who gave him a perfect piece of art on his arm in honour of the team’s 17th championship title and the NBA icon who died in a helicopter crash earlier this year.
He then followed it up by yet another video of himself talking about the tattoo in detail.
“As you see, tat is done. KB on the bottom. Kobe Bryant. Larry O’Brien Championship Trophy with the Lakers going through the ball. Gates of heaven up top, and it don’t stop. Laker Nation. Thank y’all, Lakers. And thank you, Mister Cartoon, in a real motherf*cking way. We the West and we the best.”
In other news, Legit.ng reported that Rihanna celebrated the Lakers' win against the Miami Heat by wearing a Kobe Bryant number 24 jersey.
