We Remember: Tim Duncan and LeBron James Share Inspiring Moment After '07 Finals

Jake SilverSocial Media StaffJune 3, 2014

Moments after the San Antonio Spurs beat the Cleveland Cavaliers 83-82 on June 14, 2007 to win the '07 NBA Finals, Tim Duncan and LeBron James shared an inspiring moment.

The quote that stands out most from Duncan is, "This is gonna be your league in a little while." Of course, James would accumulate four MVP awards, five Finals appearances and two rings (with the possibility of a third) in the seven years following.

The best part, though, may be Duncan thanking James with the statement, "I appreciate you giving us this year," which instantly made them both crack up.

Game 1 of the 2014 NBA Finals kicks off this Thursday, June 5 at 9 p.m. ET and will feature the same two future Hall of Famers looking to build on their legacies.
