The infamous “Banana Boat Crew” of LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Carmelo Anthony, and Dwyane Wade surely had a crazy amount of stories to tell about that day where fans went crazy after a photo surfaced of the superstars on vacation.
With the entire NBA on pause right now due to the coronavirus, Wade and Carmelo Anthony decided to give millions of fans some entertainment by going live with each other on Instagram.
Melo then shared a crazy story about how he almost died on that trip and was saved by LeBron James.
Melo: “It was my fault though, I was still trying to see the last bit of the barracuda, snorkeling and all that,” Anthony began. “It was my fault. I look up, the current is taking me to the middle of the ocean, like opposite from the boat.”
Wade: “We couldn’t see you,” he said.
Melo: “I know,” he said. “It was windy, all type of s— 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 is MacGyver. … He jumped off the boat into the water. He was bringing me back with one arm.”
Wade: “I’ve told people this story before,” he said. “I said, ‘Listen, I’ve seen LeBron do a lot of amazing things on the court. Off the court, when he went and saved Melo’s life.’”
“Nah, he saved my life,” Anthony said. “I can’t hold you. He saved my life. Yo Bron, I appreciate that. You saved my life that day.”
