-- Tom Brady posted a somewhat cryptic photo to Instagram and Twitter on Thursday night and people on social media absolutely lost it trying to figure out what it means. 

But what it really looks like is a tribute to Kobe Bryant with nothing to do with Brady’s future.

-- LeBron James and Anthony Davis are paying tribute to Kobe Bryant with new tattoos. 

The two visited tattoo artist Vanessa Aurelia on Wednesday and James got an image of a Black Mamba with what looks like either “Kobe 4 Life” or “Mamba 4 Life.”

QUOTE OF THE DAY: "I could talk to you about Mookie forever, but the reality is, business-wise, this is going to be his last year (under contract)," Ortiz told NBC Sports Boston at the Super Bowl festivities in Miami. "And you know the game that teams love playing with a guy like him — I trade him, I will get young talent, you will get whatever you want with Mookie. Unfortunately, that’s the baseball business." -- David Ortiz, on Mookie Betts
