Trainer Chris Brickley posted several videos of the game on Tuesday. The ballers played at Life Time Athletic at Sky in New York City.
"Simply for the love of the game‼ M7 @academy.basketball BlackOut Session 1," Brickley wrote on Instagram.
Cleveland Cavaliers guard J.R. Smith, New York Knicks forward Lance Thomas, Oklahoma City Thunder center Enes Kanter, Dahntay Jones, Chris Smith, Hamidou Diallo, Nick Richards, Marshall Plumlee and several other hoopers participated.
The videos are gospel for NBA fans. They show James facing up with Anthony, several high-flying dunks, slick ball handling and smooth jump shots.

Brickley also posted those videos. The trainer was previously employed as a player development coordinator for the Knicks.
The hardwood meeting was a long time coming for James. Last week, he tweeted about needing "some run."
"Where y'all hooping at?? Off-season please hurry up and end, I have basketball Jones," James said.
James said he took a plane to New York just to play ball. Now he's headed out west.
"Flew to NY just to do so then I'm going back back to Cali Cali for more run," James tweeted.
