While the Denver Nuggets-Los Angeles Lakers rivalry continues to rapidly intensify, Jamal Murray and LeBron James still have love for one another.

The Nuggets guard Murray had an interesting post to Instagram this week about the Lakers forward James. Murray shared footage of a previously-unseen moment in which James warmly greeted him and his younger brother Lamar Murray after Tuesday’s Nuggets-Lakers game.

“The side that they don’t see,” Murray wrote in his caption.

From an outsider’s perspective, it seems like the Nuggets and the Lakers are at each other’s throats right now. The Nuggets beat the Lakers in last year’s Western Conference Finals (en route to their NBA title), and the back-and-forth smack talk between the two teams progressed well into the offseason. Denver continued their domination of the Lakers with Tuesday’s Opening Night game as well, winning by a 119-107 final score.

But through it all, James is keeping it classy with his fellow players on the Nuggets side. Granted, he still might not be too fond of their head coach.
