The Super Bowl champion Aaron Donald has made his presence known in the NBA. The LA Rams defensive player was at courtside for the LA Lakers vs Utah Jazz game last night. After the game, two of the biggest stars in Los Angeles today share a special moment. Aaron Donald has the respect of LeBron James.
The Lakers star praised the Rams star big time during the post-game press conference. This interview showed everybody how tight of a bond both the players have developed despite playing two completely different sports.
LeBron James on Aaron Donald being the best defensive player ever
It was the last few plays of the Super Bowl LVI game that brought LA the win. The Bengals attack was quickly shot down by none other than the defensive beast Aaron Donald. He had the young blood quarterback Joe Burrow in his pocket. And the sack by Donald in the last minutes of the fourth quarter sealed the deal.
LeBron James did a post-match interview after the Jazz game. Aaron Donald was present courtside for the match-up. A reporter asked James about the Rams defensive tackle. King James said, “He’s the greatest defensive player I’ve ever seen play the sport.” He adds, “I say, him and Lawrence Taylor, but I didn’t even get the opportunity to see Lawrence Taylor play.”
Two sacks in three minutes for @AaronDonald97! 😳

James then revealed that before he started watching football, he used to think Ed Reed or Polamalu was the GOATs. But now LeBron believes that Donald is the best player he has ever seen. The Rams defender has just been able to dominate the field with his game.
