LeBron James is arguably the greatest basketball player ever. He's also an astute businessman and generous philanthropist off the court. But did we overlook his ability as a lifeguard? Portland Trail Blazers veteran Carmelo Anthony shared a story about LBJ saving him from drowning while he was talking to Dwyane Wade on Instagram live.
What?! No way!
While in the Bahamas, Anthony was snorkeling with the barracudas, and the current of the ocean pulled him far away from the boat they had taken out deep into the waters. That's when LeBron dove right in. The King jumped off the boat, swam to Melo, and took his buddy back to safety while he held him in one arm and swam back with the other.
Who knew LeBron would be a great partner in the open waters too? Melo is sure thankful for that because now he's enduring a feel good second chapter to his NBA career.
