In a recent interview intended to provide content (and exposure) for LeBron James's production company, Uninterrupted, the Cavs star sat down with both Drake and ex-teammate Chris Bosh to have a conversation that you can use to put off work for 20 minutes or so.

During their talk they spoke about The Carter Effect, a documentary (also produced by Uninterrupted) about the influence of ex-Raptors legend Vince Carter, which recently debuted at the Toronto International Film Festival.

The trio also spoke on how they first met, basketball, and their memories of Toronto. For instance, Bosh talked about his love for the city where his NBA career began:

Toronto made me feel welcome, feel special. People will recognize me and show love and everything. You go to the states, it’s a little different. It was one of those strange things where my family and friends would come in town and be blown away based on how many people would come to (me).

And LeBron talked about both Bosh and Drake, calling them two of the "greatest guys" he's ever met:

Obviously my start comes from a small city in Ohio, everywhere I go I talk about being from Akron and trying to give inspiration to kids and the youth and people of that nature, and then when you’re able to become successful, you meet people in life that help motivate you and inspire you. And you never know why people are put into your life until you’re actually get around them. And it puts me into this position today with two of the greatest guys I’ve ever encountered, spent time with…done some things that people know about and some things people don’t know about.

Drake also talked about the impact Carter had on his hometown:

"When Vince was popping in the city, we had nightclubs that seemed larger than life. We had celebrities coming to our city and performing that would’ve never been here before. We had rappers and people from here that were acting like we were in New York. People were driving different cars and starting businesses—he created a culture for us that we had only seen on television."
