This might sound like a minor incident, but getting caught in the current can be terrifying if you don’t know what you’re doing.
It can drag you away before you even realize what has happened. If you’re not a strong swimmer, you could be in big trouble.
Luckily for Anthony, it sounds like LeBron is a great swimmer (not surprising at all), and he was able to get into the water to save his friend.
Say whatever you want about LeBron James, but the dude just always makes moves. He’s winning NBA titles and saving people.
The man just doesn’t know how to lose.
Something tells me Anthony owed him several beers after he saved him in the ocean. I’d never let a friend pay for another drink if they saved me.
Props to Lakers superstar for saving the day.
