Carmelo Anthony Plays Pickup Game With LeBron James, Kevin Durant (Video)

The latest NBA pickup game posted to Instagram featured three of the NBA’s biggest stars: Carmelo Anthony, LeBron James, and Kevin Durant.

On Tuesday, another video of New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony playing ball was posted to the Instagram account of his trainer Chris Brickley. This time Anthony wasn’t alone. The ten-time All-Star was joined by his good buddies LeBron James and Kevin Durant, among others.

Per Tommy Beer of Basketball Insiders, the three superstars were sharing the court with Enes Kanter, J.R. Smith, Lance Thomas, and Marshall Plumlee. All four are either former or current teammates of Anthony, James, and Durant.

Basically, these three massive stars were playing ball with their friends. Pretty cool to watch.

It hasn’t been a good summer for James or Anthony so it must feel good for the both of them to get away from all the drama for at least one day.

At least until the next time, a report breaks about a Kyrie Irving trade or Melo wanting to go to Houston and only Houston.
