LeBron James sometimes appears superhuman.
His friends Carmelo Anthony and Dwyane Wade provided another example during an Instagram Live.
We jumped off the boat in the Bahamas. We went – everybody swam to the little grotto over there, underneath. And we came out. All of y’all went to the boat, and – It was my fault though, because I’m still trying to see the last little bit of the barracuda, snorkeling and all that. So, it was my fault. Then, I look up. The current is taking me to the middle of the ocean, like opposite from the boat.
We couldn’t see you.
I know. And it was windy. It was all type of s— was going on through my head. I’m going to be honest with you. Then, I see – I look up at the boat, and I see Bron jump off the boat like he is MacGyver.
He jumped off the boat into the water. He was bringing me back with one arm. He’s swimming with the other arm, and he’s carrying me in one arm.
I’ve told people this story before. I said, “Listen, I’ve seen LeBron do a lot of amazing things on the court.”
That was special.
Off the court, when he went and saved Melo’s life.
Nah, he saved my life. I can’t hold you. He saved my life. He saved my life. He saved my life. Yo Bron, I appreciate that. You saved my life that day. Them little flipper wasn’t working for me.
What a story!
