Dwyane Wade and Carmelo Anthony went live on Instagram over the weekend. Wade’s wife, Gabrielle Union, insisted Carmelo Anthony tell the story of how LeBron James saved his life while on a trip. LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony and Dwyane Wade were vacationing in the Bahamas and had taken a boat out to snorkel and swim to a cave. Melo came in the water for a bit and felt himself being pulled by the current "in the middle of the ocean, opposite from the boat."
Carmelo Anthony went on to add, "Then I look up at the boat, and I see Bron (LeBron James) jumped off the boat like he’s MacGyver. He jumped 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 me in one arm. He saved my life. I can’t hold you. He saved my life, he saved my life."
