Look out LeBron, there’s another James waiting in the wings to steal your king of the court crown, and he comes in the unlikely form of Colombian James Rodriguez.
On a night when Bayern’s ballers enjoyed a 77-68 win against defending league champions Brose Bamberg, James Rodriguez stepped out on court to show that his sublime skills aren’t limited to the football pitch.
Accepting teammate Arturo Vidal’s three-point challenge at the Audi Dome, the Bayern midfielder steadied himself, took aim and confidently looped one in, before enjoying a deserved mini-celebration.
A huge basketball fan, James Rodriguez has previously shared his love for Cleveland Cavaliers’ supremo LeBron on his Instagram account, with the 32-year-old four-time NBA MVP responding in kind during a Colombia game at the 2014 FIFA World Cup.
The footballing James is enjoying an excellent first season at Bayern, his two goals and three assists in seven appearances adding to the Bavarian giants’ pursuit of a sixth-straight Bundesliga title.
