The meeting did not go well for Love.
Not only did the Lakers secure a 131-120 win over the Cavs, James also rocked the crowd with a monster dunk over Love.
The move left Love laid on his back, also in awe of his old pal.
Thankfully, there were no hurt feelings in the end and the two friends were seen joking around on the court after the play.

James would go on to praise Love while talking about his phenomenal dunk, saying, “To be completely honest, I hated that it had to be him. He’s my guy. That’s my brother. And I hope I’m still invited to the wedding.”
James is referring to Love’s upcoming nuptials with model Kate Bock.
While James’ dunk was definitely monstrous, there’s no doubt he’ll still be dancing at Love’s wedding.
James Feeling Himself
James’ dunk on Monday night was just another sign that he is far and away the best player for his age.
There are few other guys in the history of the NBA who have played at age 37.
And none of them have played with the ferocity and the power James has shown this year.
His dunk over Love was definitely jaw-dropping but it’s not the first time this season that he’s performed something like it.
Again and again, James has shown that age really isn’t slowing him down like it does others – and he is also showing that he still has what it takes to lead a team.
Sadly, the leadership isn’t enough because the Lakers are still struggling, despite their win over Cleveland.
They are just barely hanging onto the ninth seed in the West and their postseason prospects are murky at best.
