Minnesota Timberwolves forward Kevin Love went shirtless and executed an impressive off-the-wall slam dunk at a recent practice. Does this story sound familiar?
Love was actually paying tribute to LeBron James, who hosted his own dunk show featuring the same exact move at Miami Heat practice just a few weeks ago.
The 25-year-old All-Star seems to have James’ viral dunk sequence down to a science. He bounced the ball off the far wall and then rebounded it for a reverse dunk. Love’s teammates were so dedicated to imitating the video of James that they even reacted in a similar fashion as the Heat after the shot was made.
Check out the video below for a comparison of the nearly identical shots.
