LeBron James Obviously Loved Usain Bolt’s 200M Olympic Gold Celebration


Usain Bolt clearly has been watching some Cleveland Cavaliers games.

The world’s fastest human again lived up to that billing Thursday night, obliterating the field in the men’s Olympic 200-meter final to claim his second gold medal in Rio de Janeiro.

But it was what Bolt did after crossing the finish line that caught the eye of one LeBron James.


The Jamaican sprinter celebrated by busting out “the Silencer,” a move that James has been doing for years after making big plays.

James must have a “Silencer” alert on his phone, because he was quick to fire off a tweet after seeing Bolt use his patented move.

LeBron also gave Bolt a shout-out on his Instagram.

We’re not sure Bolt has many critics to silence after dominating all comers over the last three Olympics — he has one more chance to win gold in the men’s 4×100 meter relay — but it appears he made a new pal in King James with that celebration.
