Carmelo Anthony has for the first time shared a wild story about LeBron James saving his life while holidaying in the Bahamas.
The experience was so traumatic that Melo was even slightly shook when the topic was broached during an IG Live video with Dwyane Wade on Saturday.
“I’m sweating right now thinking about that,” Anthony said.
But after some pleading from Wade’s wife Gabrielle Union, Melo went ahead and told the story.
Here’s how it went:
Anthony: We jumped off the boat in the Bahamas, everybody swam to the little grotto over there, underneath. Then we came out. All y’all went to the boat. It was my fault though, because I’m still trying to see the last little bit of the barracudas snorkeling and all that. It was my fault. Then I look up, and the current is taking me in the middle of the ocean opposite from the boat.
Wade: We couldn’t see you.
Anthony: I know. And it was windy. All types of shit was going on through my head, I’ll be honest with you. Then I look up at the boat, and I see Bron jump off the boat like he’s MacGyver. He jumps off the boat into the water. He was bringing me back with one arm. He’s swimming with the other arm. He’s carrying me in one arm.
Wade: Listen, I’ve told people this story before. I’ve seen LeBron do lots of amazing things on the court. Off the court… when he went and saved Melo life.
Anthony: He saved my life. I can’t hold you. He saved my life, he saved my life. Yo Bron, I appreciate that, you saved my life that day. Them little flippers wasn’t working for me.
LeBron has always seemed like some kind of superhero, but this is taking things to a whole other level.
