Nipsey was gunned down in front of his Marathon Clothing store in South L.A. back in March. After his death, several high-profile athletes including LeBron, praised Nipsey for being a respected community leader who always gave back.
Clearly, his memory is still strong with LeBron who paid homage to Nipsey with the new personalized threads.
“I know you smiling down back at me my G! The Marathon will Always Continue all around the world with me! #TMC,” LeBron said on Instagram.
The jersey is sick — featuring Nip’s famous Crenshaw logo on a blue Lakers alternate jersey.
And now, with Bron’s stamp of approval, don’t be surprised if people push to see these in an NBA game.
After Nipsey’s death, LeBron spoke out on the tragedy … calling it “one of the most unfortunate events that has happened in American history.”
LBJ also wore a shirt to honor his friend at a Lakers game in the days that followed.
Nipsey was only 33.
