The Portland Trail Blazers forward to shared an incredible story with fans from their infamous Banana Boat crew vacation.

According to Melo, LeBron James saved him while their group was swimming in the ocean. After a strong current began to pull Anthony out to sea, James jumped off the boat to grab his friend and swim him back to safety.

“I look up and the current is taking me into the middle of the ocean, opposite from the boat,” Anthony said. “Then I look up at the boat and I see Bron, Bron jumps off the boat like he’s MacGyver. He jumps off the boat into the water. He was bringing me back with one arm. He’s swimming with the other arm, and he’s carrying in one arm.”

“That was special,” Anthony said. “He saved my life. Yo Bron, I appreciate that. You saved my life that day.”
