Giants receiver Odell Beckham Jr., almost predictably, had a big game against the Browns in Cleveland on Sunday. Overall, he reeled in six catches for 96 yards and two touchdowns in New York’s 27-13 win.

On his second touchdown, Beckham paid homage to Cavs star LeBron James by doing two of James’ most iconic celebrations. He started by doing the powder toss James used to do before James and then did the ‘Silencer’ motion James first used in Miami.

Earlier in the game, Beckham actually did the celebration after a punt return, but his touchdown was called back due to a penalty.

Browns fans probably didn’t enjoy Beckham mimicking James in his city. But this is still pretty cool; Beckham is arguably the best receiver in the league and names is at the top of the NBA.

Now, the next move is for the Browns to score enough and win enough for a player to be able to do this celebration.
