LeBron James and the Cavaliers traveled to San Antonio to take on Tim Duncan and the Spurs on Thursday night.

In a hard-fought game, the Spurs managed to pull off a tight 99-95 victory. Afterwards, LeBron took to Instagram to pay tribute to the greatest power forward to ever step foot on an NBA court.

Here’s a better look at the caption:

Don’t know how many times we got left to go against one another but I’ve never have and I never will take them for granted! The consistency you’ve shown over the years goes unmatched and as a competitor it’s always a treat to be competing on the same floor as you! Being a professional(professionalism) is so overlooked in our sport but I always knew who I could look to if I ever wasn’t professional about this lovely game and that’s You. From one King to Another and to the Greatest PF to Ever play this game, all Love and Respect Timmy D!

It’s a classy move by LeBron, but I’m sure he’s thinking what everyone else is thinking: There’s a very good chance these two meet again in the NBA Finals.
