With the Los Angeles Lakers getting a day off on Monday, LeBron James was tuned in on the slate of NFL Monday football games. And sure enough, he enjoyed the time off, thanks to Justin Jefferson and the Minnesota Vikings.

Jefferson, who was recently selected to the 2022 Pro Bowl for his second straight Pro Bowl appearance, impressed early on with a touchdown midway through the first quarter of the contest. He displayed his brilliant connection with Kirk Cousins to get things going for the Vikings.

Of course, it wouldn’t be complete without his dancing celebration:

LeBron James, for his part, was certainly impressed with what the young wideout has been showing since his arrival in the league last year. On Twitter, the Lakers star couldn’t help but heap praise on the 22-year-old and label him as a “#YoungKing.”

Greatness undoubtedly recognizes greatness, and by the looks of it, the Lakers forward sees someone who will be dominating the NFL for the years to come in Justin Jefferson.

It was only Jefferson’s lone touchdown of the game after four receptions for 47 yards, though his presence alone made a huge difference for the Vikings as they easily handled the Bears. Minnesota closed the game with a 17-9 scoreline, giving no chance to Chicago at all.

Hopefully for the Lakers, LeBron got motivated watching a Minnesota team take down the Chicago squad. They surely need King James to elevate his game with Anthony Davis out and some players in the COVID-19 health and safety protocols.
