During the latest Lakers game, Lebron James bent a knee as usual in solidarity for the Black Lives Matter protests. He added a new stance by crossing both arms on his chest to make the "Wakanda Forever" sign.

This, he did, in honor of Boseman who made the phrase a famous saying among many. On his Instagram page, James also shared a tribute post to the "Super Hero."

The "Get On Top" star passed on last Friday after a four-year battle with colon cancer. Before his death, fans were not privy to the fact that he was battling a terminal illness. Three months earlier, many fans had expressed their concerns about his weight loss in one of his Instagram videos.
