A great story involving Lebron James and Michael Jordan has surfaced.

Per Jackie MacMullan, Jordan once gave James his phone number but the latter never called him.

Well, maybe James didn't need anything! That hasn't stopped the NBA world from giving their input on this funny story.

Both James and Jordan are two of the best players in NBA history.

James is trying to lead the Lakers into the play-in tournament this year, though they've lost seven of their past 10 games.

He's also trying to win his fifth NBA championship, which would put him one away from tying Jordan, who has six.

The Lakers are currently 31-43 overall, which is good for 10th in the Western Conference.

Hopefully, there's more to this story between the two at some point.
