Different time zones will not prevent friends from having each other's back and the super star of the NBA LeBron James continued to show his thanks for the longtime friend of Romeo Travis, who has quite a success in the PBA.
Travis wore Magnolia on his back, with 50 points and 13 rebounds, he led Hotshots to his 112-108 Game 4 victory over Barangay Ginebra to advance to the Finals of the Cup of Governors.
James took Instagram in an effort to show his love for his colleague in the Secondary School in St. Vincent St. Mary, where they were part of a group called Fab Five.

"I went to the finals in 50-piece chips! Congratulations to my brother," said LeBron. "Keep Lucky Lefty."
Travis, who scored 21 points in the fourth quarter, was in pain after he suffered a second-ranked left-handed knee muscle in league 3 in the series.
Importing Magnolia added that he did not want to play another game in the semi-finals and he wanted to make sure that he would spend his time with his wife before leaving the Philippines on Sunday – the day that was fixed for the alleged game 5 in the series and would be played in Biñanu.
"I just wanted to conquer you, I did not want to go for a road game," Travis said. "My wife leaves on Sunday and I just do not want to play again honestly. I do not know if I could play physically again, so I just gave everything I had, I said it all there."
On Thursday morning, Travis provided a medical license from a famous orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Raul Canlasa said on Thursday morning that the pain he experienced was even more complicated by the victory.
"Today I played a lot of pain and that was worth it," said Travis. "It was emotionally so that it could come through pain and earn it. It meant a lot to me."
And the attractiveness of the finale was just a glittering treasure that drove Travis to the threshold.
Travis first played in the PBA with Alaska in the Cup of Governors in 2015, where he could lead Ace to the Finals in only four matches lost San Miguel.
"The last time I was here, I put the egg," said Travis. "I was very bad when I was in the finals. I want salvation and that's why I came back. I looked at the list and I see that they have good veterans and hungry guys. I do not want to take over, I just wanted to be a member of the team."
"These guys allowed me to be part of the team, and that's what makes this team special, that's chemistry, they know that I am not a boy who will require a ball and cursed anyone if I do not get the ball. I am a person and as a player. Now we are one unit, we completely click on. "
