On Wednesday evening, Los Angeles Lakers rookie guard Lonzo Ball made headlines when he elected to wear Nikes over his ZO2 signature shoes for a game versus the Philadelphia 76ers

Nike's biggest basketball star noticed. 

Cleveland Cavaliers superstar LeBron James, who watched portions of the game in person, took to Instagram to offer a shoutout to the 19-year-old, posting a video of Ball wearing the kicks and a caption consisting of a familiar three-word phrase: 

"Just. Do. It." 

What Ball did was earn a double-double by scoring a game-high 36 points and notching 11 assists in his team's 103-102 victory.
