Video: LeBron breaks out the Stevie Johnson ‘Plaxico’ celebration


Last night Team LeBron James beat Team Kevin Durant in their flag football game. While the only score that mattered was zero torn ACL’s, it was LeBron’s team that won on the gridiron.

That included him having a pick six where he went with the Stevie Johnson ‘Plaxico’ celebration. Which we bring you now.

Next time we bring you LeBron video, we hope it involves a basketball.

A couple of the NBA’s biggest stars are not letting the end of the NBA lockout get in the way of some good football.

Kevin Durant and LeBron James will face off on the flag football gridiron Wednesday night as planned, reports Iran Winderman of the Sun Sentinel. And you can watch the game for free online.

Yes, at the very time that NBA players are being asked to sign insurance waivers to work at NBA facilities, the Miami Heat forward is following through on his challenge to Durant with a flag-football game Wednesday night in Akron.

The game starts somewhere between 7 p.m. and 8 p.m. Eastern, depending on which site you check. You can watch live by just following this link.

Both LeBron and Durant had some football escapades this summer, which led to a little debate on twitter. Mix in a lockout and some egos and suddenly, you’ve got a game.

If you are looking for Heat president Pat Riley or Thunder GM Sam Presti during the game, they will be at a local church on their knees praying for the knees of their stars.

Video: Kevin Durant is pretty good at flag football, too

Here’s some video of Kevin Durant doing something very Durant — playing flag football with some college kids. This whole thing came together because an OSU student simply responded to KD on twitter. Durant had asked if there were any games, the student responded he was playing in one up at Oklahoma State in Stillwater, and the rest is history.

What other NBA superstar would drop everything one night to go play some intramural flag football with strangers? Got to love Durant. This is not a facade, this is who he is.

The video also shows that Durant is a better athlete than your average college student. But we probably knew that already.
