The Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James played against Carmelo Anthony in what could have been the last playoff game between the two. LeBron marked his duel with his old friend with an Instagram post.

“Going on 20 years of friendship to date my brother and it will always be a privilege and honor to do what we love to do and that’s hoop! Never taking these moments for granted cause I just don’t know how many more we got together out there but what I do know is we have the rest of our lives afterwards to continue to live it up to the fullest. Love CHAMP!!!” James wrote on his Instagram page.

Melo had 27 points in Blazers’ attempt to extend their postseason. Meanwhile, James had 36 points.

LeBron, who is 35, and Anthony, 36, could still meet in next season’s playoffs, depending on where Carmelo plays next and if their teams face each other in the postseason.
