Haha......seriously?

Yes Nike doesn't play


CheesyDanny

Too good at basketball? [Right to jail.](https://youtu.be/eiyfwZVAzGw)


DankSmokingRobot

How you think heath ledger died?


Nickl0786

He beat Lebron in basketball too?


Unk_Nakima

Really?


mishiiimashiii

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


Salty-Calligrapher37

You see that jumper? She’s definitely a bonafide hooper


Time_Cartographer443

I would of guessed that just from her height


1ardent

Isn't that Elena Delle Donna?


AnythingToPissYouOff

I can assure you 90% of the people that read this name googled it because nobody watches the WNBA.


smoakqueen

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.


AnythingToPissYouOff

I’m pretty sure that’s like peak fame as a WNBA star


FOXfaceRabbitFISH

And the other side of the Wheaties box


Seak-n-Destroy

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!


Cotterisms

In my defence I am in the UK so definitely don’t watch the WNBA, or the NBA


BeautifulEnd949

National Bowls Association here in the UK - we roll our balls here not throw them through hoops .


Dragonkingf0

That explains cricket.


HeWhoMustNotBDpicted

the what what


G4Designs

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%.


AnythingToPissYouOff

I threw a few pity points in


1ardent

Probably. In my defense, I'm originally from Connecticut.


Deepseafisher9

98%. 80% don’t want NBA


MATVIIA

What’s WNBA?


AnythingToPissYouOff

Women’s National Basketball Association


MATVIIA

Huh, there’s a woman’s version of the NBA, just googled who knew, Good Bot!


Retter00

😂good bot

deaddriftt

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.


wholekitnkabootle

Not Delle Donne. Its Nicole kornet didn’t play in WNBA. However her brother is on the Celtics.


JoeMang

No, it's [Nicole Kornet](https://www.instagram.com/p/CRj4NfShzsa/).


sleepdeprivedindian

Doesn't look like her.. Mostly no.


laziejim

You’ll appreciate that I helped build that volume! 😃


KocaKolaKlassic

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


philium1

I mean they’re clearly having fun. He was probably trash talking, but I doubt it was mean-spirited or anything.


CapsidMusic

Some people just want to hate Lebron for breathing


Omegamanthethird

Hold up. That motherfucker breathes?


SushiToot

- Hey you! What’s that sound? - I am breathing… - GET ‘EM!!! - (*Kung Fu noises…*)


Frequent_Inevitable

*(Shaq Fu noises…)*

Thanks Obama


Schnarfman

He does WHAT


paulmartballpop

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


GUYF666

We goin Sizzler! We goin Sizzler!


TheOriginalGuru

Your mother's so poor I saw her kicking cans and I asked her what she was doing she said "moving!”


Frequent_Inevitable

Your moms so dumb I told her it was chilly outside so she went out with a bowl


HidaKureku

I heard your mom was going out with SQUEAK!


halfofftheprice

Op has never played basketball nor seen baseketball


ejman24

People want to hate on bron for everything


alyxandermcqueen

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.


agentresslersburner

This got 100 upvotes lmao wtf


Acobbsalad

You must not have played sports with you friends lol.


dxiao

>Really thought he was gonna slide a foot under her Lol seriously? That’s pretty fcked up


throwaway4myhair

delusional


yungmoney5

She’s a former UCLA guard. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.latimes.com/sports/ucla/story/2021-07-26/ucla-women-basketball-players-space-jam-characters%3f_amp=true


Nate141205

Good human!


JoeMang

[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).


hannibal8979

LeBron Shames


FerMFcillas

Lmao take my free award


CommunicationWild462

Lejon Brames


A13verything

Did lebron really need a stunt double for a basketball movie? 😂


T_Charles

I was gonna say the same thing… like which one of these “LeBrons” is about to walk closer to the camera?


Medical_Ad0716

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.


BlackHandBanana

Do you think Michael Jordan did it all himself in the original? These people aren’t risking their careers over a freak accident.


steam_pump

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.


dReDone

Oh man this got me good.


ArchMart

Probably just his stand in.


TiliTomCarne

No it's his acting double, duh! 😂


UnavailableRedux

I mean, everybody’s job their depends on him being healthy. It makes sense to have a double.


laziejim

He’s in costume, the mocap actress is a different character in the movie


ninjaambassador

Wait isn't that "motion capture artist" Elena Delle-Donne, who is one of the top WNBA stars?


JoeMang

No, it's [Nicole Kornet](https://www.instagram.com/p/CRj4NfShzsa/).


askljdhaf4

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


MightBeYourMomma

Most unnecessary tldr ever


virusamongus

Should be a LS;S (long story short)


ericfromct

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.


traimera

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.


Edd_the_Redd

She was 4 for 4, he was 4 for 5.


Calm_Your_Testicles

True, but she was still standing closer than he was.


dReDone

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.


BigBroDev

Nicole Kornet is not just a motion picture artist. She's a former UCLA basketball player.


donnncorleone

One of the best wnba players* and a pure shooter lmao


wholekitnkabootle

Nicole kornet is not a WNBA player


NICE_GUY_00

nice ass... both of them


Jeff_Bzzos

Bet she can’t carry the Cavs to the NBA Finals


Puzzled_Mongoose4050

The GOAT? or Not?


goopygilbert

No chance


Riff_Moranis

The GOAT was In the original


cunningcover

For sure


philium1

He has an argument, but I still gotta give the nod to Jordan. Bron’s top three for sure though.


philinterr_pted

Not


agentresslersburner

These comments are disturbing lol


ExportTHC

Listening shows you exactly what kind of guy, that guy is.


CaregiverSpecific221

Lebron's a pussy fart.


Party_with_Pandas

I believe the word you’re looking for is queef.


CaregiverSpecific221

I knew the word. lol Pussy fart sounds better.


greasybirdfeeder

Such a terrible movie.


tequiila

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.


Aclark707

That’s a WNBA player bruh. She knows how to shoot


wholekitnkabootle

Nicole kornet is not in the WNBA


ch67123456789

r/UpvotedBecauseButt


TotallyNotAnAlien-_-

Yes LeBron has a very nice butt


GrumpyBert

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.


Ok_Albatross_2495

Sign her


WhiteWalterBlack

There’s probably nothing sexier than a woman kicking a dude’s ass with skill.


TattooedHusker91

Her shooting is better than the dumpster fire of a movie that was. LeBron’s acting was awful.


The_Irish_One

His acting is better when he’s shilling for China.


ArtfulMunk

It's lejon brames


Diggable_Planet

Both were great to watch


sielingfan

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."


Alexis_turtle

That’s why he’s not the GOAT lmao. Michael Jordan would never.


Mrdaddy2030

She cute af


skiesarelight

He won. She shot 2 pointers. He was shooting three pointers.


lifeincolorgames

To be fair LeBron was shooting a little further from the line.


KenGriffythe3rd

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


jasonakinaka

As a short man, it's just impressive she's not dwarfed by him.


straightspiraling

At the end did he just gloat and point to his spot and say shoot from there? That’s embarrassing.


yowassupyo

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?


Aschuff

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 ????


Mansano28

Tall mommy 😳😳


CanniBal1320

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.


kochapi

So why don’t we have Trex shooting hoops already?


TheMartyr112

Her banging it right in his face on the fourth shot, as he tried to stand over her and get her off her game. Fucking SAVAGE.


Willis050

WNBA player*


SJFJSBFKX

Hahaha


Affectionate-Bag-733

Do I see two LeBron looking dudes?


_KalStormblessed_

Why are there 2 LeBron's in there?


AFirstCourse

ELI5 everything in this post


blu-juice

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.


Emi72

Which LeBron?


BallerChin

Her shooting motion is smooth!!


Rocklobzta

Yeah but let’s see that 1 on 1 😂


TooManyProjectz

Cake


GamerKev451

How many LeBron are there?


moral_story

That’s not the only thing that’s next level


pruthier

did he just ask her to shoot from three afterwards?


KatCorgan

Brian Baumgartner beat both of them!


Boogerchair

He stands like 3ft back


eye_omlette

Looks like she's shooting from closer than he is, still really impressive shots and she missed none!


zorbacles

Why is there 2 lebrons?


CogHammer21

Lebron James 😆👍, loser


TheMurcat

I’m 90% sure that “Motion Capture Artist” is Nicole Kornet, who played for the women’s USA team at one point.


kinapudno

I can imagine the type of comments that I'll read when this gets posted in TikTok/Youtube


jdavi2112

Not hard. LeBron sucks


adioking

Bet she can beat him in a read-off too.


cheesy_frys

And that’s the move that made Lebron cry


TechnoGeek423

And to make matters worse, ALL her swishes were cleaner than his (which were a little off center)


Xx_Andos_xX

now do that under pressure from people running at you trying to take the ball from you.


sopgti

better than WNBA


SharkCatcherCMD

Glad the title wasn't "first white woman to absolutely destroy LeBron in a shootout"


TheAvocado12345

Was there 2 lebrons? I mean I know there could have been a stunt double or something. I feel im missing something.


Panthemusicalgoat

What’s her name


osamaleo26

![img](emote|t5_m0bnr|4014)![img](emote|t5_m0bnr|4024)![img](emote|t5_m0bnr|4019)


Mia305809

She’s better than him


EkbyBjarnum

Imagine having this story in your pocket next time you need to play "two truths and a lie"


Divine-Nemesis

Ouch……….his pride.


Jodoran

She’s a motion capture *model*, but okay.


Thurman_Mermanz

He also shot from like two feet further back


go-devils-go

China


mike_litorus9

Usa beats china


Cachazo_719

Lebron wasn’t even trying


Lucaszoid

I mean it really didn't look like he was trying


squd_

Wow that’s crazy. I’m surprised LeBron didn’t walk-off 5min early


MrKnIVXX

Why is there 2 LeBrons???!!!!!


N4d4c00l

Jordan never lost to a costume designer.


RollingstoneMoss

Yeah but she's motion capture person, & he's still LeBron .. if that means anything.


PatDaddy1313

Lebrons bouta trade her for someone doing the Cinderella movie.


Lurkay1

But can she do it on a cold rainy night in Stoke?


rocker_kid

Just because lebron plays for a living doesn’t make him perfect


Capital-Ad6759

He probably cried right after too


gorephy

i felt that.


snowflakeskillme

And she's pretty, win win


lolo_lulu123

I don’t know anything about basketball but that looks like a… deadly 3 pointer? Idk


nekollx

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


Square-Credit1175

LeBron sucks that’s why


CarlJustCarl

I’m confused, why was Lebrun shooting 2 feet back further then her? Why wasn’t the contest over after Lebron missed?
