Fans react to LeBron James’ Mamba 4 Life tattoo that’s featured on NBA 2K24
This year marks a major milestone in the legacy of the 2K franchise. NBA 2K24 is the 24th installment of the game. And usually, a 24th anniversary or event as such is generally referred to as the “Kobe Year”. Hence to celebrate the special occasion and honor the Los Angeles Lakers legend, Kobe Bryant was made the cover athlete of 2K24. They also created a separate segment within the gameplay dedicated to Bryant.
But this particular feature has to take the cake. We are all aware of LeBron James and what he has done for the league. The 4x Champion has had several run-ins with Kobe as well. And he’s also known for having unique tattoos, with one of them being dedicated to Bryant. NBA 2K24 has featured this tattoo on James’ avatar in the game. The tattoo is of a snake and “Mamba 4 Life” written under it.

This segment allows fans to relive iconic moments from Kobe’s career via challenges.
