A video of a Kevin Love exhibition dunk during practice has surfaced, but this is not just any dunk. It just not-so-coincidentally happens to be the identical dunk that Lebron James was filmed making over two weeks ago. A few days ago, Love took advantage of being in the same Phoenix practice arena that Lebron was in when he filmed these series of dunks.

Already in mimicry fashion, Love is shirtless just as Lebron is. Love would now take on Lebron’s impressive dunk: the toss of the ball off the sideline wall caught off the high bounce and dunked backwards into the basket.
The original video was taken by Ronny Turaif on Gorgui Dieng’s phone. The most prominent voice in the video clearly comes from an excited Turiaf, while the rest of the team goes absolutely insane after Love connected on the dunk. Although in Lebron’s video, the Heat are a substantailly less enthused. Some may argue that the Timberwolves celebration after the dunk is more enjoyable than the dunk itself.
