A jersey worn by the Los Angeles Lakers’ LeBron James during the 2020 NBA All-Star Game at the United Center in Chicago last month sold for a modern-era record $630,000 Thursday night.

Darren Rovell of the Action Network reported the update Friday:

James recorded 23 points, six assists, five rebounds, two blocks and a steal in 19 minutes to help his squad, Team LeBron, earn a 157-155 victory over Team Giannis, led by the Milwaukee Bucks’ Giannis Antetokounmpo, in an All-Star Game that became highly competitive in the final quarter.

Rich Mueller of Sports Collectors Daily reported the proceeds from the 25 All-Star jerseys would benefit the Mamba on Three Fund and the Mamba & Mambacita Sports Foundation.

Those are charities championed by the Bryant family in the wake of the deaths of Lakers legend Kobe Bryant, his daughter Gianna Bryant and seven others in a January helicopter crash in California.

James said he could feel Kobe’s presence throughout the All-Star festivities:

The shorts LeBron wore during the first half are also on the block via NBA Auctions with a top bid of $3,220 and six days before the auction closes Thursday night.

Warriors news: LeBron James reacts to Stephen Curry’s return vs. Raptors

Stephen Curry and Lesbron James

Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James welcomed Golden State Warriors sharpshooter Stephen Curry in his return against the Toronto Raptors on Thursday.

Via Twitter, James was thrilled to see Curry back after missing 58 games due to a broken hand.

James and Curry faced in four NBA Finals. Curry and the Warriors snagged three titles including a back-to-back. James, for his part, beat the 73-win Warriors squad by carrying the Cleveland Cavaliers to a 3-1 comeback to claim the first championship in franchise history and his third overall.

During this time, James and Curry were considered one of the most popular figures in all of sports. Curry quickly rose as one of the game’s elites when he won his first title in 2015. Along with three titles, Curry also has MVPs including the first player in NBA history to be elected MVP by a unanimous vote. With his 3-point shooting ability, Curry has been credited to changing the way the game is played.

James, meanwhile, remains at the top of his game since entering the league in 2003 as one of the most hyped prospects in basketball history. His resume, which includes four MVPs, three titles, 16 straight All-Star appearances, among other countless milestones, proves how legendary he is. Their historic 3-1 surge against the Warriors in 2016 may be the cherry on top of his illustrious career.

Amid their rivalry, the two have maintained a great relationship behind the curtains. There are countless clips online of the two dabbing it up and sharing pleasantries after a hard-fought game. It only goes to show how much respect they have for one another.
