Kevin Durant and LeBron James are rivals on the court, now competing against each other for the Larry O'Brien trophy, but we all know they're good friends off the court.

As legend has it, stashed away somewhere is a six-year-old, never-before released hip-hop track by James and Durant.

According to ESPN, the track was made during the league's 2011 lockout, while King James was a member of the Miami Heat and Durant played the Oklahoma City Thunder.

LeBron James and Kevin Durant may be rivals at the moment but in 2011, the two National Basketball Association stars recorded a hip-hop track together, according to ESPN's Chris Haynes.

Both players are music junkies, and in between workouts they made a decision to kill some time by writing their own lyrics and heading to the booth, sources told ESPN. Durant reportedly rapped the first verse before James took the second and then Durant closed it out.

In addition, Durant produced the track, since he creates beats in his spare time, and he also spit the first and third verses.

While the record's title has not been revealed, nor has any theme, another source says it's "a quality track" and even said the lyrics were "surprisingly well-crafted and delivered". The closest the song did come to being released is after Durant and his crew filmed the Warner Brothers film "Thunderstruck" and executive producer Eric Goodwin suggested using it in the film. However, the world may never actually know unless the aforementioned hip-hop track is either leaked or released to the public.

"I heard the track years ago during post-production for Thunderstruck".

We're not sure which player is the better emcee, but Durant has been the better player in the 2017 NBA Finals.
