James, who has been following the Olympics — to the point of wistfully watching the U.S. men’s basketball team from afar — saw the gesture and tweeted out his approval. He had previously expressed his admiration for Bolt after the latter won the men’s 100 meters on Sunday (becoming the first man ever to win that event in three straight Olympics).
This isn’t the first time Bolt has performed the “Silencer” move. He also did so after helping Jamaica win the 4×100 relay at the 2015 world championships in Beijing. The question is whether we will ever see Bolt’s “To Di World” again, after he runs the 4×100 relay on Friday in what will likely be his final Olympic race.
Another LeBron fan with a pretty solid impression of the Cav’s signature move is his own son, Bryce, whose version James showed off in an Instagram post last year.
