LeBron Jamesday off before playing with Phoenix Suns spent a section watching one of his favorite sports – Pro Football. Four-time MVP continuously watched the mid game Minnesota Vikings and Chicago Bears. In particular, what caught his eye was a young superstar Justin Jefferson of the Vikings.
The recently named Pro Bowler opened the scoring with a touchdown pass from Kirk Cousins with about five minutes left in the first half. LeBron James, a widely known fan, was full of praise.
James was so impressed by his sophomore diploma that he crowned him the Young King:
“Justin Jefferson IS SO SORRY!!! #YoungKing. ”
LeBron James and Justin Jefferson are fans of each other’s games. The Minnesota wide receiver considers the All-Star 17x to be his favorite athlete and has been seen alongside at Lakers games. Jefferson will certainly have to live up to lofty expectations, knowing that it was the King of Basketball who labeled the 22-year-old a football royalty.
The hugely talented Jefferson has made a name for himself since he joined the NFL last season. He made 88 hits for 1400 yards and finished with 7 touchdowns in his rookie year. In 14 games this season, he has scored 1335 yards from 89 catches and 9 touchdowns, including an ice break against the Bears.
With Justin Jefferson’s play, he could become a prophet from LeBron James after winged compliments.

The LA Lakers are currently sixth at the Western Conference with a 16-15 record. Their next home game will be against the Phoenix Suns, the best record holder in the NBA, hitting a record 24-5. LeBron James will lead the difficult mission against the Sun, who were able to stop the virus.
