Just after winning the Super Bowl LVI, Aaron Donald of the Los Angeles Rams decided to visit the Crypto Arena to watch the basketball team of the city. And despite struggling throughout this season, Los Angeles Lakers didn’t disappoint the Champion. During the match, fans witnessed a great moment when LeBron James gave a high five to Aaron Donald.
So, let’s have a look at the incident.
Aaron Donald Impressed By LeBron James Moves
Los Angeles Lakers were playing against Utah Jazz at the Crypto Arena. It has not been a very good season for the Lakers and the start of the game was also similar to the Lakers’ this season.

During the last seconds of the 3rd quarter, the Lakers were trailing Jazz with around 8 points. The score was 79-69 and then LeBron James came up with an amazing move. James jumped and got past three Jazz players and then faked a ball, and lastly spinned the ball into the net.
Sitting near the sidelines Aaron Donald was pumped with the move and his reaction was clear that he wants the Lakers to make a comeback. The Lakers ended the 3rd quarter with 79-71 trailing with 8 points.

However, LeBron James put a show on the night and helped the Lakers to a comeback. In the last quarter, Jazz only scored 22 points in response to the Lakers’ 35 and they lost the game.
The win didn’t help the Lakers much as they’re still on the 9th in the table and a play-off spot looks a challenge from here. Notably, fans were quite impressed to see James and Donald giving each other high fices and motivating each other for their sport. Not to forget, LeBron was also present in the stands during the Super Bowl to cheer his team.
