KANSAS CITY, Mo. — One of the most popular athletes in the world has made his way to Kansas City this weekend.

And LeBron wasn’t the only NBA Star in attendance. Former NBA player Carmelo Anthony is also coaching his team, Team Melo, throughout the weekend.

The two basketball icons and friends were seen greeting each other.

LeBron and Carmelo are no strangers to Kansas City. The EYBL brings them and their children to the area routinely for tournaments and James played several exhibitions in Kansas City when he played for the Miami Heat.

The tournament includes some of the top high school basketball players in the country. If fans want to see some of the action, the entry fee is $15.

The tournament runs through Monday on Memorial Day weekend.
