Side-by-side comparison of reverse windmill dunks by Kobe Bryant, LeBron James are unbelievably similar

By

LeBron James threw down one of the most impressive dunks of the season so far in a losing effort against the Rockets on Thursday night, and it really sent a surge through the social media world.

And while the sensational, reverse windmill slam was electrifying, it was also strikingly similar to a dunk from a former Lakers legend.

Kobe Bryant threw down a dunk in a game roughly two years ago, and it was similar to LeBron’s in nearly every way. The side-by-side view shows just how alike the two dunks were.

LBJ reacted to the Lakers’ tweet with a number of emojis.

Maybe James was paying tribute to one of the greatest players the game has ever seen with that dunk. And if so, he nailed it.
