The NBA has arrived at a beautiful milestone as they celebrate their 75th anniversary. After decades of keeping fans engaged and making them fall in love with the game of basketball, they decided to make and release a short film that would pay homage to this long journey. ‘Welcome to the NBA Lane’ encapsulates how certain legends back then, now and even later, contribute to the league’s history. However, seems like the hype already around it wasn’t enough. Michael B. Jordan and LeBron James in the promo added on to the craze.

In this short film, Jordan is going to be playing the ‘Hoopbus’ driver, giving a tour of the neighborhood. Apart from many other NBA legends like Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Dwyane Wade, Magic Johnson, Russell Westbrook, and many others, LeBron James is also starring in it. So with the promo of ‘NBA Lane’ out, Bron and Michael B. Jordan shared a clip of their scene on their Instagram stories too, highlighting their bond.

The lay of the land is LeBron and Jordan at first just exchange greetings. But when Michael noticed LeBron growing something in a garden right in front of them, he asked, “That’s how you’re planting your seeds?” LeBron responded, “Yeah man, I promised to set up for the next generation.”

Cut to, school kids are seen gathering in front of the bus. Then LBJ points towards to garden and allowed Jordan to take some of it. He even warned, “But not too much though.” However, Michael does the exact opposite, picked up and left with a big plant instead. While exiting he said, “Keep up the good work! Next generation, man. See ya!”, leaving the Lakers star confused.
