It would his last post.

On Monday night, James then shared an emotional tribute to the NBA legend who he described as his brother.

“I’m Not Ready but here I go.

“Man I sitting here trying to write something for this post but every time I try I begin crying again just thinking about you, niece Gigi and the friendship/bond/brotherhood we had! I literally just heard your voice Sunday morning before I left Philly to head back to LA. Didn’t think for one bit in a million years that would be the last conversation we’d have. WTF!!

While the pair were never teammates in the NBA but they did help the United States to gold medals in the 2008 and 2012 Olympic Games. The bond between the pair grew once more when James joined the LA Lakers, the same team that Bryant lead for two decades.

LeBron’s LA Lakers side were supposed to face their city rivals the LA Clippers this evening (Tuesday), however, NBA chiefs have confirmed that the game has been postponed.
