LeBron James reacts to Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes’ magical TD pass to Tyreek Hill
Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James was in full support of the Cleveland Browns during their game against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday, but he couldn’t help but be impressed with Patrick Mahomes.
After the Chiefs fell behind 22-10 at the half, Mahomes sparked Kansas City’s comeback and finished with three touchdowns and zero interception in the contest. He completed 27 of his 36 passes for 337 yards. While his overall performance was phenomenal in its own right, one particular play stood out for LeBron.
Early in the fourth quarter and the Browns leading 29-20, Mahomes threw a 75-yard touchdown pass to Tyreek Hill while being heavily covered. Hill should be given credit for being able to leave his defender after the catch, but Mahomes’ throw was equally, if not more impressive considering the situation he was in.

Of course after watching the play from the Chiefs QB, LeBron James couldn’t believe what he saw. The Lakers star simply called Patrick Mahomes a “magician” for pulling off such a trick in a high-pressure situation.
Man what!!! 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣. Mahomes is SICK! MAGICIAN 🪄

Unfortunately for LeBron, his home team was not able to held on to their lead and lost 32-29 to the Chiefs. While it looked like Baker Mayfield was set for a brilliant opener–finishing with 321 yards on 21-of-28 pass completion–it was all spoiled by Mahomes’ epic display.
