The Los Angeles Lakers and Memphis Grizzlies play again for the last time this season on Friday, meaning that Kobe Bryant should get one more meeting with Vince Carter in his career. On Wednesday, the two shared a laugh when Bryant beat Carter with the fade.

It's hard to believe that long ago, there was a debate among some NBA fans as to which player was superior. On this night, however, it was just about two guys in their late 30s - former AAU teammates - exchanging pleasantries.

For the record, Bryant outscored Carter 13-9, but the Grizzlies beat L.A. 128-119.
