Watch LeBron, Carmelo, Durant And Others Go Off In Pickup Hoops

We're just a few weeks from the NFL season officially kicking off, and you're ready for some football. From James' raw athleticism, to the 7-foot Durant's handle, mid-range game and silky smooth jumper, to Anthony's ability to face up anybody and drain it right in his defender's face (sorry, LeBron), it's an incredible testament to the talent level among the NBA's best.

On Tuesday, a video of the three superstars looking like they're in mid-season form in mid-August went viral.

The bad news is the start of the National Basketball Association season is still months away, but the good news is trainer Chris Brickley has been sharing videos of star players in pickup games. And the other guys on the court weren't exactly scrubs.

No, quick-cut/just-the-buckets footage of LeBron, KD and Melo running with fellow National Basketball Association dudes J.R. Smith, Enes Kanter, Lance Thomas, Dahntay Jones and Marshall Plumlee - plus former former National Basketball Association player/J.R.'s younger brother Chris Smith and incoming University of Kentucky prospects Hamidou Diallo and Nick Richards - isn't quite what we crave.

After competing in the NBA Finals, James and Durant once again appear to play for opposite sides.
