Later on in the draft, Antetokounmpo drafted James' Klutch Sports teammate Ben Simmons to his roster and even apologized to James because he knew James wanted Simmons.
Dwyane Wade and LeBron James will share the court one final time February 17 and, for the first time since the Big Three broke up in 2014, it will be as teammates.
"It's all about love", he told the media then.
A quietly great part of the clip is Antetokounmpo murmuring "oh wow" to himself after James makes the pick. James selected Davis, and Giannis had a question about the pick when Ernie Johnson asked James if he was sure.
"Everyone in the world knows who I'm going with and I'm going with Dirk", James said, before pausing to laugh at his joke. "So, everything else for me is just like icing on the cake". James took Wade, his former Miami and Cleveland teammate and longtime close friend.

Trump did not back down from his determination to withdraw, saying, "We look forward to giving our fearless warriors in Syria a warm welcome home".
James, the leading All-Star vote receiver this season, had the first overall pick.
Having selected Davis with his first second-round pick, LeBron then drafted Klay Thompson of the Golden State Warriors, Washington Wizards' Bradley Beal, Damian Lillard of the Portland Trail Blazers and Russell Westbrook of the Oklahoma City Thunder as guards.
"He better pick me", Wade said Friday after the Heat's loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder at AmericanAirlines Arena.
Antetokounmpo selected Stephen Curry, Joel Embiid, Paul George and Kemba Walker for his starting lineup. TNT aired the draft Thursday evening but pre-recorded it that morning while trade news was still flying ahead of the 3 p.m. ET deadline. Doing it live was not feasible since James and the Lakers were playing Thursday night in Boston.
Following the draft, Antetokounpo traded Simmons to Team LeBron for Westbrook. When Antetokounmpo took Simmons minutes before, James used an expletive and exclaimed, "You took my guy!"
