LeBron James' Hilarious Reaction To Joe Biden's Election Victory Goes Viral

It was a massive weekend for the United States.

And there was one man in particular who couldn't of been any happier with everything that unfolded.

It's no secret that LeBron James isn't exactly the biggest Donald Trump fan, so when Joe Biden came out on top in the presidential election the NBA megastar had the perfect response.

Recently-crowned NBA champion LeBron has been quite vocal in the build up to the election.

But rather than biting at the bait and taking personal shots back at Trump, LeBron has instead been urging people to go out and vote.

Focusing purely on his 'More Than a Vote' campaign, LeBron even insisted that he was refusing to 'go back and forth with the man' ahead of the big day - until now, it seems.

Despite a delay in the entire process (mainly thanks to Trump's accusations of a rigged election), Biden finally reached the 270 electoral votes needed to be elected president of the United States.

LeBron was among a number of high-profile athletes to react to the news, but his was perhaps the best.

The Los Angeles Lakers star took to social media to post a picture that best captured his overwhelming feelings.

LeBron hilariously photoshopped Biden's head onto his body and Trump's face onto Andre Iguodala's to recreate his infamous block in Game 7 of the 2016 NBA Finals.

In what is widely regarded as one of the most clutch plays in sports history, Iguodala looked set to win a championship for the Golden State Warriors with a simple lay-up in the dying embers of the game before LeBron pulled off in incredible block to deny him.

The iconic moment brought fans inside Oracle Arena and around the globe to to their feet.

It also produced one of the most legendary pieces of sports commentary when Mike Breen screamed: "Ohhh blocked by James... LeBron James with the rejection."

Of course, LeBron and the Cleveland Cavaliers went on to win the game - much like Biden went on to defeat Trump in the recent election.

Unsurprisingly, fans went wild for the picture as it ticked over to one million likes on Twitter and 5.4 million on Instagram.
