LeBron James Shouts Out Khalil Mack During Bears Debut

Mack intercepted a pass and returned it for a touchdown in the first half

Chicago Bears defensive end Khalil Mack has made an immediate impact on the team in his first appearance, and the sports world is taking notice.

Mack, who was acquired in a trade with the Oakland Raiders earlier this summer, registered his first sack as a member of the Bears, and he also returned an interception for a touchdown late in the second quarter of the game.

Los Angeles Lakers forward LeBron James, who is a Cleveland Browns fan, saw the play and made sure to give him props for his strong play:

“I see you hit ‘em with the ‘silencer,’” James said. “Give me that ball!”

Mack is now the highest paid defensive player in NFL history after inking a six-year contract with the Bears. The team acquired him from the Raiders in exchange for two first round picks.
