During the game between the Atlanta Braves and the Pittsburgh Pirates, fans got to see a powdery mess in the dugout. After Ronald Acuna Jr.slammed a home run, he, alongside Guillermo Heredia, did a little nod to LeBron James. The Braves star tossed a fistful of powder up in the air in a clear tribute to the Los Angeles Lakers star.

Naturally, this little celebration caught the attention of LeBron himself. The Lakers star reacted to this celebration by Acuna Jr by praising the Braves star. Take a look at what LeBron had to say about the standout Atlanta star.

This isn’t the first time that Ronald Acuna Jr did his best LeBron James impersonation during a game. Earlier this week, the Braves star mimicked the Lakers star’s iconic “Silencer” celebration. That celebration was popularized by James during his time with the Miami Heat back in 2012.

The Braves star has done more than just copy the Lakers star’s celebrations, though. A few days after hitting the Silencer on the Rockies, Acuna Jr. went with an in-house celebration, using Hawks star Trae Young’s “chilly” celebration.

Acuna Jr. and the Braves have every reason to showboat in the 2022 MLB season. After a rocky start to the season, the team has rebounded nicely with a massive 10-game winning streak. Acuna has been key to that run, clearly looking to prove himself after missing Atlanta’s historic World Series run.

Meanwhile, LeBron James and the Lakers are looking to rebound from their horrid 2021 – 22 season. A new coaching staff and a full offseason of recovery should hopefully help this LA team reach the heights they once had back in 2020.
