Carmelo Anthony shocked fans when he talked with Dwyane Wade about a time LeBron James literally came to his rescue after the current was taking him “to the middle of the ocean” during a boating trip.
Carmelo Anthony, 35, did a little reminiscing with Dwyane Wade, 38, when they discussed how LeBron James, 35, became a hero off the court in a livestream they teamed up on together. In the stream, the Portland Trail Blazers player revealed that the Los Angeles Lakers player stepped it up and saved his life when he was stuck in the middle of the ocean after jumping off a boat during a vacation they were on with Dwyane.
“The current is taking me in the middle of the ocean, like opposite from the boat,” Carmelo said to Dwyane while explaining what happened in the stream. “We couldn’t see you!” Dwyane responded, indicating the seriousness of the situation. “I know,” Carmelo replied. “And it was windy, there were all types of sh*t going on through my head, I’ll be honest with you. Then I look up at the boat and Bron jumps off the boat like he’s MacGyver.”
Carmelo went on to say that once LeBron jumped into the water, he caught up with him and brought him back “with one arm.” “He’s swimming with the other arm and he’s carrying me with one arm,” he said while laughing over the athlete’s impressive strength. After Dwyane admitted he had seen him do a lot of great things on the basketball court but never something like saving Carmelo, Carmelo reiterated the importance of what he did that fateful day. “He saved my life,” he said with appreciation.

Esta anécdota es brutal. Una locura. Carmelo Anthony, en un directo con Dwyane Wade, contó como LeBron James le salvó la vida: "Estaba ya lejos del bote, había mucho viento y me veo en mitad del océano. Se me pasó de todo por la cabeza, siendo honesto. Y de repente, miro otra vez al bote y veo a LeBron saltando como si fuera MacGyver. Me llevó de vuelta con una mano y con la otra nadaba. ¡LeBron te aprecio, me salvaste!". #CarmeloAnthony #Carmelo #Anthony #DwyaneWade #Dwyane #Wade #LeBronJames #LeBron #James (Vídeo vía @espn)
