VIDEO: Michael Porter Jr. pulls a LeBron James with no-look three-pointer
Welcome to your next NBA Top Shot moment, Michael Porter Jr.
The Denver Nuggets forward pulled off his best LeBron James impersonation on Wednesday as he drilled a no-look three-pointer against the Charlotte Hornets. Mad props to MPJ for having the extreme confidence to knock down the shot.
Porter made sure to do it too at the same exact spot as The King did a few months ago (via BroBible).

IYKYK. Right, young fella?
The 22-year-old Porter is oozing with confidence and it’s hard not to imagine why. Against the Hornets, he exploded for a game-high 28 points while shooting 3-of-6 from deep range. The young swingman has been more than comfortable from long distance as he’s shooting 42 percent all season long.
The Missouri native has been absolutely balling and has taken it upon himself to be another high-scoring guy for coach Mike Malone. The former McDonald’s All-American has been a great compliment to the duo of Nikola Jokic and Jamal Murray and is poised to have a monster season, averaging 15.3 points and 7.2 boards before facing the Hornets.
For what it’s worth, the LeBron no-look three is going for around $1,000 in the Top Shot marketplace and it won’t be surprising if we see this shot from Michael Porter Jr. to go for the same amount in the near future.
