LeBron James Gives DK Metcalf Nickname During Seahawks Star’s Big Game

James sees a little of himself in the Seahawks receiver

If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, what should we make of LeBron James’ praise for DK Metcalf?

The NBA superstar issued the Seattle Seahawks wide receiver an eye-catching nickname Sunday during Seattle’s NFL Week 8 game against the San Francisco 49ers. Metcalf’s standout performance included one of the plays of the season to date: a 46-yard touchdown, in which he did most of the scoring work himself.

As if that wasn’t enough, Metcalf capped his incredible first half with another touchdown reception.

James apparently was watching Metcalf terrorize the 49ers and was impressed enough to dub him “Baby Bron.”

Metcalf, 22, has a bright present and future in the NFL, and the nickname James bestowed upon him will stick if he keeps performing like this.
