Lakers star LeBron James in shock over DeAndre Hopkins’ absurd TD catch off Kyler Murray
Arizona Cardinals wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins captured the entire world in one catch, as the 28-year old leaped and reached over three defenders to get the game-winning touchdown against the Buffalo Bills on Sunday. The four-time Pro Bowler converted on the huge play which had everyone on social media hyped, including Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James.
LeBron was all praises for Hopkins after his miraculous game-winner, with the Lakers forward taking it to Twitter to share his reaction to the inspiring play.
WOW WOW WOW!! HOP HOP HOP! @DeAndreHopkins My bro different!!

With just 10 seconds to go in the game, QB Kyler Murray was running out of time and space and had to heave a 50-yard Hail Mary towards the end zone. Luckily for Murray and the Cardinals, DeAndre Hopkins was waiting past the goal line ready to take flight. Hopkins’ amazing catch catapulted the Cardinals to a 6-3 record, as they find themselves at the top of the NFC West division and well in position to contend for the playoffs.
LeBron James, who’s quite the receiver himself, was more than impressed with the play. Back in his St. Vincent-St. Mary days in high school, the four-time NBA champion also played high school football as a WR for his school. The Lakers star made First Team All-State in his sophomore year and followed that up with 57 receptions for 1,160 yards and 16 touchdowns on his junior year. Before opting to skip college and go straight to the NBA, James was highly recruited by a few Division 1 football programs.
The reigning Finals MVP is making the most of his rather short offseason by tuning in to his second-favorite sport. After winning his fourth NBA ring last month, James and the rest of his Lakers squad just have a few more weeks off before training camp for the 2020-2021 season begins.
