Everyone knows that the 2014 NBA Finals between the Miami Heat and the San Antonio Spurs is a rematch of the 2013 NBA Finals. However, what’s easy to forget is that, while it’s the second time the Spurs and Heat will duke it out, it’s the third Finals matchup between Tim Duncan and LeBron James.

In 2007, when LeBron put the Cavaliers on his back and carried them all the way to the NBA Finals, it was Tim Duncan’s Spurs who put an end to their run with a 4-0 sweep in the Finals. However, even then Duncan knew LeBron’s day was coming, and he told him exactly that in the tunnel of Quicken Loans after the game.

In advance of Game 1 of the NBA Finals on Thursday, the NBA put a video of that encounter up on Instagram, and it’s pretty awesome.

Take a look:

That was a pretty funny line at the end there. I bet he didn’t think he’d still be around challenging the King at the age of 37, either.

Game 1 of the 2014 NBA Finals is set for Thursday, June 5 at 9ET. You should watch it.
