A story involving LeBron James and Michael Jordan is going viral, thanks to longtime NBA writer Jackie MacMullan.

During "The Ringer NBA Show" on Friday, MacMullan recalled a time when Jordan approached James and gave him his phone number, telling him to call if he needed anything.

Apparently, LeBron never called.

Assuming this interaction happened early in James' career, Jordan probably figured the young superstar might want some advice.

But James is his own man, and he was and is building his own legacy as opposed to competing with or learning from Jordan. That's why, when you really think about it, it's not all that surprising that he never picked up the phone.

Anyway, Jordan and James were photographed together during the NBA 75th Anniversary team ceremony before this year's All-Star Game, and they seemed to be getting along just fine.
