The NFL Playoffs continue to rage on as the NFC and AFC championship games are next on the path to the Super Bowl. On Jan. 22, Cincinnati Bengals star receiver Ja’Marr Chase paid tribute to a future basketball Hall of Famer.
As Chase raced into the end zone for a Bengals touchdown, he pulled off a series of celebrations, ending with him doing a step-back jumper. It was evident by the motion that he was imitating Philadelphia 76ers star James Harden and his patented move.
Afterward, fellow receiver Tee Higgins tagged Harden in a tweet to let everybody know what was going on.
Chase, Higgins, and the Bengals knocked off the Buffalo Bills in a snowy road game 27-10. They now move on to face the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC championship game as they look to make their second consecutive Super Bowl.
As for Harden and the Sixers, after a 5-0 road trip, they will play host to the Brooklyn Nets on Wednesday.
