Jay is no stranger to the magic of James, as these two go way back.

Congratulating him on his greatness and continued success, he used this unique moment to talk about his buddy –

“Being able to perform at a high level for a long period of time, that’s excellence. Long after you’ve gone, people, they’re looking at your name. That’s what greatness is. There’s not many you can compare LeBron to. 19-time All-Star, a remarkable feat. The all-time scorer, all-time. I mean, what can you say?

From there, you see the two friends throughout the years in highlights.

Included are scenes of the two from as far back as 2003.

Having known Lebron for a long time, Jay acknowledges that his greatness was evident even then.

Adding to his comments on the vid, he says –

’I’ve known LeBron since he was in high school. There was a lot of talk about how amazing he was. We were convinced this guy was super special. He’s been through plenty iterations of the game, and each era, he’s been the best. The chosen one, that’s it.”
