On Sunday night, the Los Angeles Lakers defeated the Miami Heat to claim the 2020 NBA championship. This victory was met with celebration from several celebrities including iconic rapper Snoop Dogg.

Taking to Instagram, Snoop shared a clip where he showed off a new arm ink he got to honor the Lakers' victory. The tattoo comprised an image of the NBA championship trophy with "Lakers" written on the ball.

Right below the trophy was a text that read, "KB." Snoop explained that this was done in honor of the late NBA star, Kobe Bryant. Captioning the video, he wrote:

"Thank u."

He continued the caption by tagging several Lakers' players, including Lebron James, Anthony Davis, Caldwell Pope, and Dwight Howard.

Shortly after sharing the post, fans and followers took to the comments section to show admiration for the gorgeous tattoo. So far, the video has garnered over seven hundred thousand views and over one hundred thousand likes.

Snoop's recent tattoo is not the first time the rapper paid tribute to Bryant. The basketball legend passed away in January following a helicopter crash, and ever since, Snoop has continued to honor him.

During the 2020 ESPY Awards in June, Snoop honored Bryant's legacy with a song where he recounted many of his numerous accolades and the undeniable cultural impact he had on people.

When Snoop is not paying direct tribute, he is busy defending Bryant's legacy. A few weeks after Bryant passed away, popular television personality, Gayle King raised some questions about the NBA star's past sexual assault charge.

This did not go well with Snoop who took to social media to accuse King of disrespecting Bryant's legacy while also lashing out at her. This caused a stir among internet users who believed he did not need to lash out at the television host.

In response to the backlash from internet users, Snoop revealed that his comments came from a place of love because he believed Bryant and his family deserved more respect.

During Bryant's lifetime, he shared an amazing bond with Snoop and it is no wonder that the legendary rapper has continued to find new ways to honor him. Congratulations to the Lakers!
