On Sunday, the Los Angeles Lakers won their 17th NBA Championship in franchise history after defeating the Miami Heat in 6 games.

LeBron James posted an Instagram photo dedicated to Kobe Bryant on Wednesday, three days after the Los Angeles Lakers won the 2020 NBA Finals. Here is what LeBron had to say on Wednesday night:

"Hope I'm made you proud my brother!! Love and miss you Champ!!" James wrote in the caption of a picture featuring him with a No. 24 Bryant jersey.

After Bryant's death in January, James dedicated the season to the Lakers legend and promised to "continue [Bryant's] legacy."

The Lakers wore a patch with Bryant's initials on their jerseys after his death and found several other ways to honor him and his family, including the introduction of their Black Mamba jerseys. The team chose to wear the Black Mamba uniforms in Games 2 and 7 of every playoff series in honor of Bryant and his daughter, Gianna, Bryant.
