LeBron James says what we’re all thinking as Lamar Jackson torches the Texans

LeBron James is a huge Lamar Jackson fan.

So huge that the NBA’s king felt compelled to praise the expected NFL MVP while the Baltimore Ravens were running all over the Houston Texans on Saturday in an AFC Divisional Round playoff game.

“Man I LOVE Lamar Jackson!!!!!” James tweeted while Baltimore held a 24-10 lead in the fourth quarter.

Jackson started slow against the Texans then turned it on in the second half, as the Ravens answered a 10-10 halftime tie with 21 unanswered points.

Jackson led the charge, running 11 times for 100 yards and two touchdowns before the 5-minute mark of the final period, while completing 16-of-22 passes for 152 yards and two TDs.

After James posted his Jackson praise, the Ravens’ franchise QB ran for another TD to give him four total in the blowout.

Baltimore took a 3-0 lead against the Texans, then led 10-3 before Houston ran back a 67-yard punt for a touchdown to tie the game late in the first half.

Footage showed Jackson become emotional pregame while listening to the United States’ national anthem and a fly over passed above Baltimore’s stadium.

As fans cheered and fireworks were fired, Jackson hugged a Ravens staffer and then remained connected with the employee for an extended period.

The Baltimore QB appeared to receive a pregame pep talk and become even more emotional during the private conversation.

Jackson also pulled off a thrilling run that fans thought was a tribute to his high school era.

Jackson reminded NFL fans why he ended the 2023 season as the MVP favorite, taking over the second half and ending the Texans’ storybook season.

Baltimore scored three consecutive TDs, following Jackson’s lead and professionally putting Houston away.

Jackson dominated the game with his arm and legs, continually keeping the Texans’ defense off balance and electrifying the Ravens’ stadium.

After his fourth TD, Jackson found a TV camera and proudly celebrated.

Baltimore was heading to the AFC Championship game and the NBA’s all-time leading scorer had nothing but praise for the Ravens’ highly talented dual-threat QB.
