The Los Angeles Lakers will wear their ‘Black Mamba’ jerseys honoring Kobe Bryant during Game 5 of the NBA Finals on Friday, The Lakers are undefeated when wearing the jerseys in the postseason.
The late Bryant designed the black and gold snakeskin threads in 2017 as the first addition to the City Edition collection. The Lakers wore the jerseys during Game 2’s 124-114 victory and were scheduled to don them again in a potential Game 7. The team said they will still wear them if the series goes all the way, but cannot wear them in Game 6, because the Heat will be wearing black.
