Frances Tiafoe has long admired NBA legend LeBron James, who has supported 'Big Foe' from afar. That made their meeting on Sunday evening a Slam Dunk.
During warmups for the game between Tiafoe’s hometown Washington Wizards and James’ Los Angeles Lakers, James visited Tiafoe courtside, where they shared a quick embrace.
“Nothing but love OG,” Tiafoe wrote on Instagram.
It was a special moment for Tiafoe, who was thrilled to have the all-time great’s support during the US Open. After the 24-year-old upset Rafael Nadal en route to the semi-finals, James tweeted his congratulations.
