The Minnesota Timberwolves rookie Anthony Edwards made the dunk of the year as he posterized Yuta Watanabe of the Chicago Bulls. It didn’t go unnoticed by the Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James, who reacted to the dunk via an Instagram story.

“My goodness lil bro!!! Sheesh!!!” James wrote in awe of Edwards’ dunk. The two have met recently when the Lakers faced the Timberwolves.
