Recently, the late Lakers legend Kobe Bryant has been receiving many tributes in his honor. Two days ago, when the tennis superstar Novak Djokovic won his 24 Grand Slam in the US Open, because of the number of his record-breaking win, wore a T-Shirt with him and Kobe Bryant on it and the No. 24 in honor of the "Black Mamba."

The two athletes were close friends and shared the famous "Mamaba mentality," so it was nice to see Djokovic showing love and appreciation to the Lakers star.

But Novak isn't the only athlete showing his love and appreciation to the purple and gold superstar, as the San Diego Padres and Los Angeles Dodgers are battling in a three-game set at Dodgers Stadium this week, and Padres star Fernando Tatis Jr. is using the series as a chance to honor Los Angeles Lakers icon, Kobe Bryant.

With information by Darren Rovell: “Fernando Tatis Jr. to wear custom Air Jordan Kobe tribute shoes for Padres series against the Dodgers this week. Cleats have 4,750 crystals, which were carefully placed one by one.”

The last time the LA Dodgers won the World Series was in 2020

The Dodgers won the World Series in 2020, the same year the Lakers won the NBA Finals, in an emotionally complex year for the city of Los Angeles after Bryant’s tragic death. His legacy is still impacting athletes today.
