Mamba Russ is in the building! 

Ahead of the Seahawks divisional game vs. the LA Rams at Lumen Field in Seattle, quarterback Russell Wilson arrived in style. 

Wilson was sporting Aviator glasses and a black Kobe Bryant jersey with an 8 on the front and a 24 on the back. He was also wearing Kobe Grinch 6's. 

It's a tribute to the Black Mamba, who died last January in a tragic helicopter accident. Wilson's wife Ciara and Vanessa Bryant are also good friends. 

The decision to don Kobe Bryant gear is also an incredible flex by Wilson. Not only are the Seahawks taking on a team from Los Angeles, but a win over the Rams would clinch the NFC West for Seattle. 

Wilson and the Seahawks will need to have the Mamba Mentality, a killer instinct, in Sunday's game. 

And they're ready.
