Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James had fans on their feet with a stunning reverse jam Thursday night, which we now know was an amazing recreation of a famous Kobe Bryant dunk.

Here’s the reverse jam LeBron wowed with on Thursday night.

Then, on Friday, the Lakers shared on Twitter that James’ dunk was almost exactly like a famous Kobe reverse jam from 19 years ago on the same end of the court.

Talk about chills. Incredible stuff.

Knowing how much James treasures NBA history and that he has a photographic memory, you know this was not coincidental. James went out of his way to honor his friend and mentor once again, and he did it with incredible style.
