Nick Sirianni compared Jalen Hurts to Michael Jordan after the Philadelphia Eagles throttled the New York Giants Saturday evening in the NFC Divisional Round.

Another NBA icon checked in to show his support for Hurts, who earned his first career playoff win Saturday.

LeBron James -- who has renounced his fandom of the Dallas Cowboys -- pushed back against perceived detractors of Hurts, who he believes is a "special" talent:

Hurts' banged up right shoulder didn't seem to affect his play at all against the Giants, as he threw two touchdown passes and ran for another in a 38-7 win.

Hurts and the Eagles will host either the Cowboys or San Francisco 49ers in the NFC Championship Game next Sunday at Lincoln Financial Field.
