LeBron James reacts to insane Kyler Murray-DeAndre Hopkins Cardinals TD
Late in the first half of the Sunday night matchup between the Arizona Cardinals and Seattle Seahawks, second-year quarterback Kyler Murray produced yet another highlight-reel play en route to connecting with All-Pro wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins way downfield.
Although the Cardinals have only managed one touchdown up to at this point in the NFC West clash, it was definitely a memorable score that caught the attention of just about everyone on social media—including Los Angeles Lakers superstar forward LeBron James.

Fresh off winning his latest NBA title, his first as a member of the heralded Lakers, the aforementioned James apparently just can’t keep his eyes off the sports world as he is locked into Week 7’s version of Sunday Night Football. James immediately commented on the impressive pitch and catch from Murray to Hopkins as it was pretty difficult to not acknowledge the talent on the field for the Cardinals on that play.

Murray was previously selected by the Cardinals with the No. 1 overall pick in the first round of the 2019 NFL Draft out of Oklahoma, where he won the Heisman Trophy for the Sooners. On the other hand, the Cardinals acquired Hopkins via trade this past offseason as Arizona managed to land the All-Pro pass catcher from the Houston Texans, who have struggled mightily in his absence in 2020-21.
The Seahawks entered the Week 7 clash with the Cardinals at a perfect 5-0 as Arizona is currently looking to dethrone Seattle from atop the NFC West standings. However, it will take a big second-half effort from the tandem of Murray and Hopkins for that to ultimately happen.
