On Thursday night, after a Cleveland Cavaliers and Washington Wizards game LeBron James met Alexander Ovechkin for the first time. The two superstars from their respective leagues shared a brief conversation in which Ovechkin gave James an autographed jersey. James, feeling embarrassed he had nothing in return promised to send something Ovechkin’s way.

Lebron’s intial reaction to meeting AO was fantastic. Stating “Yeah. He’s a bad boy. God….I don’t know how you guys do that [stuff], sliding on ice and still hit the [dang] puck? Whooo.”

The introduction was handled by Capitals owner Ted Leonsis. Nicklas Backstrom was also on hand to meet James and his entourage. Moments before the introduction Ovechkin chatted it up with James’ team mate and Lithuanian born Zydrunas Ilgauskas.
