Who awards this lmao
That girl ain’t yours
In Memoriam….motion capture chick.
Haha this would be hilariously not surprising
Traded to the monstars before the deadline.
Yes Nike doesn't play
Too good at basketball? [Right to jail.](https://youtu.be/eiyfwZVAzGw)
How you think heath ledger died?
He beat Lebron in basketball too?
I work almost daily with motion capture and we would usually hire in people with skills in whatever performance we are capturing so I’m willing to bet she’s probably an accomplished basketball player herself.
She’s still a badass though
You see that jumper? She’s definitely a bonafide hooper
I would of guessed that just from her height
Isn't that Elena Delle Donna?
I can assure you 90% of the people that read this name googled it because nobody watches the WNBA.
I recognize the name! Not because I'm a WNBA fan (basketball is not my sport), but because I'm a children's book seller and we stock her Hoops series.
I’m pretty sure that’s like peak fame as a WNBA star
And the other side of the Wheaties box
I recognize the name! Not because I'm a WNBA fan, but because she is in a constant battle with Lyme Disease (I'm in a fight of my own with the disease). What she has been able to achieve in her life, while living with Lyme, is inspirational!
In my defence I am in the UK so definitely don’t watch the WNBA, or the NBA
National Bowls Association here in the UK - we roll our balls here not throw them through hoops .
That explains cricket.
the what what
Bold to assume 10% of people reading this watch the WNBA... or the NBA in general.
I'd be willing to bet its less than 1%.
I threw a few pity points in
Probably. In my defense, I'm originally from Connecticut.
98%. 80% don’t want NBA
Women’s National Basketball Association
Huh, there’s a woman’s version of the NBA, just googled who knew,
Willie Nelson’s Busted Anus
edit: I was wrong. not Elena Delle Donne in this clip. disregard.
I know OP is just doing their best but the title made me sad chuckle a little lol. "some know her as 'Motion Capture Artist'. Others, as Elena Delle Donne, a consensus top 15 player in the history of the WNBA."
she actually is a baller. first WNBA player to record a 50-40-90 season.
Obviously the WNBA doesn't have the audience that the NBA does currently, but rad to see some women athletes featured in this latest Space Jam film.
Not Delle Donne. Its Nicole kornet didn’t play in WNBA. However her brother is on the Celtics.
No, it's [Nicole Kornet](https://www.instagram.com/p/CRj4NfShzsa/).
Doesn't look like her.. Mostly no.
You’ll appreciate that I helped build that volume! 😃
Getting all up in her personal space while shooting the 2nd to last shot and especially her last shot. Classy. Really thought he was gonna slide a foot under her
I mean they’re clearly having fun. He was probably trash talking, but I doubt it was mean-spirited or anything.
Some people just want to hate Lebron for breathing
Hold up. That motherfucker breathes?
- Hey you! What’s that sound?
- I am breathing…
- GET ‘EM!!!
- (*Kung Fu noises…*)
*(Shaq Fu noises…)*
He does WHAT
Have you never played shootarounds with your boys? You usually f*ck with someone like that when someone gets hot, or try to make them laugh. Clearly they know eachother
We goin Sizzler! We goin Sizzler!
Your mother's so poor I saw her kicking cans and I asked her what she was doing she said "moving!”
Your moms so dumb I told her it was chilly outside so she went out with a bowl
I heard your mom was going out with SQUEAK!
Op has never played basketball nor seen baseketball
People want to hate on bron for everything
Lol please. It’s really not that deep at all. Have you ever even played basketball? Not only is it a contact sport he moved back when he saw her step back to that place.
This got 100 upvotes lmao wtf
You must not have played sports with you friends lol.
>Really thought he was gonna slide a foot under her
Lol seriously? That’s pretty fcked up
She’s a former UCLA guard.
[Nicole Kornet](https://www.instagram.com/p/CRj4NfShzsa/) for those looking for her name (not Elena Delle Donne as a few other people are saying).
Lmao take my free award
Did lebron really need a stunt double for a basketball movie? 😂
I was gonna say the same thing… like which one of these “LeBrons” is about to walk closer to the camera?
The other guy is the one who’s arms stretch 30 feet when he realizes he has cartoon powers during the big game against the monstars.
I haven’t seen the Lebron space jam I’m just assuming there’s an exact same scenario as the Jordan one.
Do you think Michael Jordan did it all himself in the original? These people aren’t risking their careers over a freak accident.
Yeah. Just because they have chiseled abs and stunning features, it doesn't mean that they too can't not die in a freak gasoline fight accident.
Oh man this got me good.
Probably just his stand in.
No it's his acting double, duh! 😂
I mean, everybody’s job their depends on him being healthy. It makes sense to have a double.
He’s in costume, the mocap actress is a different character in the movie
Wait isn't that "motion capture artist" Elena Delle-Donne, who is one of the top WNBA stars?
My business partner got drunk with Reggie Miller at ESPN Zone about 2 months after he won the NBA 3-point shooting contest.. TL;DR is that he beat him
in a 3-point shooting contest (caught on VHS)
He refused a rematch, and has refused to pick up a basketball since, stating “He wants to go out on top, and it’s only downhill from here”
For reference, he’s a 5’11 guy that doesn’t look athletically inclined in any way, so I can’t fault him
Most unnecessary tldr ever
Should be a LS;S (long story short)
I’ve done the same with beer pong. Won my first and only game, and I’ll stay one of the only undefeated beer pong champs ever.
How did she bear him exactly? She shot 3 for 3. He went 4 for 5 from further away. That's not really a competition from different places.
She was 4 for 4, he was 4 for 5.
True, but she was still standing closer than he was.
He's LEBRON JAMES. Also she's shooting from top of the key and he's only a bit farther shooting 3, the distance isn't that much considering you are playing against someone who is literal champion. Noway in my life I could drill 4 in a row in front of LeBron Fucking James.
Nicole Kornet is not just a motion picture artist. She's a former UCLA basketball player.
One of the best wnba players* and a pure shooter lmao
Nicole kornet is not a WNBA player
nice ass... both of them
Bet she can’t carry the Cavs to the NBA Finals
The GOAT? or Not?
The GOAT was In the original
He has an argument, but I still gotta give the nod to Jordan. Bron’s top three for sure though.
These comments are disturbing lol
Listening shows you exactly what kind of guy, that guy is.
Lebron's a pussy fart.
I believe the word you’re looking for is queef.
I knew the word. lol Pussy fart sounds better.
Such a terrible movie.
I tried to watch it a few times and fell asleep every time. Showed it to my kid and he fell asleep. The film had so much potential with great visuals but that storyline and script was just awful.
That’s a WNBA player bruh. She knows how to shoot
Nicole kornet is not in the WNBA
Yes LeBron has a very nice butt
Motion capture artist is a top 10 female basketball player ever, and the best absolute free throw shooter: Elena Delle Donne. And she has Lyme disease, so add +10 respect to the mix.
There’s probably nothing sexier than a woman kicking a dude’s ass with skill.
Her shooting is better than the dumpster fire of a movie that was. LeBron’s acting was awful.
His acting is better when he’s shilling for China.
It's lejon brames
Both were great to watch
At first I was like "there's no way that's a regulation sized ball." But then I was like "Actually he's not a regulation sized human being."
That’s why he’s not the GOAT lmao. Michael Jordan would never.
She cute af
He won. She shot 2 pointers. He was shooting three pointers.
To be fair LeBron was shooting a little further from the line.
How tall is she? From the perspective of the camera angle of her first and second shot relative to the backboard and rim makes her look super tall
As a short man, it's just impressive she's not dwarfed by him.
At the end did he just gloat and point to his spot and say shoot from there? That’s embarrassing.
have you ever touched a basketball in your life or taken part in any competition at all? its called trashtalking and in this case it was clearly used in a friendly manner. the woman is an accomplished WNBA player, you want lebron to baby her?
You’re talking to a redditor here, of course he doesn’t have friends to play sports with or trash talk with. Half the people here sayin how much of an asshole he is for shot talking like ????
Tall mommy 😳😳
Couple things. The woman as other people have pointed out is a top WNBA player who is known for her shooting skills. Also anyone can be unlucky and make mistakes, so not really next level tbh.
So why don’t we have Trex shooting hoops already?
Her banging it right in his face on the fourth shot, as he tried to stand over her and get her off her game.
Do I see two LeBron looking dudes?
Why are there 2 LeBron's in there?
ELI5 everything in this post
They’re just fucking around, but people are giving this lady some props for making more shots in a row than Lebron (She’s also an accomplished basketball player). Whether it’s impressive or not is speculative, but it’s still a fun story for her.
If you’ve played basketball, or Tony hawks pro skater, it’s kinda like a mini game of horse.
Her shooting motion is smooth!!
Yeah but let’s see that 1 on 1 😂
How many LeBron are there?
That’s not the only thing that’s next level
did he just ask her to shoot from three afterwards?
Brian Baumgartner beat both of them!
He stands like 3ft back
Looks like she's shooting from closer than he is, still really impressive shots and she missed none!
Why is there 2 lebrons?
Lebron James 😆👍, loser
I’m 90% sure that “Motion Capture Artist” is Nicole Kornet, who played for the women’s USA team at one point.
I can imagine the type of comments that I'll read when this gets posted in TikTok/Youtube
Not hard. LeBron sucks
Bet she can beat him in a read-off too.
And that’s the move that made Lebron cry
And to make matters worse, ALL her swishes were cleaner than his (which were a little off center)
now do that under pressure from people running at you trying to take the ball from you.
better than WNBA
Glad the title wasn't "first white woman to absolutely destroy LeBron in a shootout"
Was there 2 lebrons? I mean I know there could have been a stunt double or something. I feel im missing something.
What’s her name
She’s better than him
Imagine having this story in your pocket next time you need to play "two truths and a lie"
She’s a motion capture *model*, but okay.
He also shot from like two feet further back
Usa beats china
Lebron wasn’t even trying
I mean it really didn't look like he was trying
Wow that’s crazy. I’m surprised LeBron didn’t walk-off 5min early
Why is there 2 LeBrons???!!!!!
Jordan never lost to a costume designer.
Yeah but she's motion capture person, & he's still LeBron .. if that means anything.
Lebrons bouta trade her for someone doing the Cinderella movie.
But can she do it on a cold rainy night in Stoke?
Just because lebron plays for a living doesn’t make him perfect
He probably cried right after too
i felt that.
And she's pretty, win win
I don’t know anything about basketball but that looks like a… deadly 3 pointer? Idk
Not surprised mo cap is all about repitition so being able to do the same move with the same result from the same spot is litterally their job
LeBron sucks that’s why
I’m confused, why was Lebrun shooting 2 feet back further then her? Why wasn’t the contest over after Lebron missed?
