Floyd Mayweather, the boxing legend who just celebrated his 44th birthday, got the rarest gift to have ever existed in basketball history. Sports product company Wooter Apparel gifted Floyd a unique trading card which features Kobe Bryant & LeBron James, arguably the greatest basketball players of all time.

While Kobe & James were active as basketball players during the same time, their interaction in the court was highly anticipated. Topps Chrome designed a trading card featuring both Bryant & James for the NBA season of 2008-09.

That’s when both the legends were supposed to cross paths in the court, but as luck would have it, Orlando Magic won over LeBron James and the Cavs in the Eastern Conference Finals, and fans never got to see the match.

That card, now owned by Floyd Mayweather, is a true rarity which went for a baffling $15,000 on eBay. Floyd says that he plans on getting the card signed by the hall of famer LeBron James himself. Heavy writer Brandon ‘Scoop B’ Robinson twitted a video of Mayweather receiving the card by Wooter Apparel.

Kobe is the reason why LeBron wanted to play for the Lakers. James planned on having a discussion with Kobe about his future back in 2018, but unfortunately, Kobe & his daughter lost their lives in a helicopter crash from which many fans haven’t completely recovered since. Not having that discussion is something James deeply regrets to this very day.
