As a way to honor the late Kobe Bryant, as well as his daughter, Gianna, the Los Angeles Lakers will wear unique jerseys in their Game 4 matchup against the Portland Trail Blazers on Monday night.

The date on which this game is to be played is significant, as it falls on August 24 (or 8/24). As most hoops fans know, these are the two numbers that Bryant wore throughout his playing career in the NBA.

Details of this “Black Mamba” kit include a black colorway with golden accents, the team's Wish logo, and a white heart patch that is stitched with Gianna's No. 2 in its center. According to a report from, the Lakers will continue to wear the uniforms if they move past the first round.

The Lakers have honored Kobe by wearing these black kits at times throughout this season. The jersey, which was designed by Nike with help from Bryant, is one of several in the “Laker Lore Series,” which consists of uniforms inspired by Lakers legends Magic Johnson and Shaquille O’Neal.

Bryant was killed in a helicopter crash outside Los Angeles in January. Sadly, all passengers on the flight, including his daughter, Gianna, perished in the tragic accident. Reports indicated that the group was on its way to The Mamba Sports Academy, where Kobe was to serve as a coach for Gigi's basketball team. The Lakers legend would have turned 42 on Sunday.

The Lakers are currently leading their first round series against the Trail Blazers by a tally of two games to one. Game 4 is set to tip on Monday night at 9:00 p.m. ET, with TNT having live broadcast coverage.
