One picks Lebron #23 of the Cleveland Cavaliers and the other one picks Steph #30 of the Golden State Warriors which turns out to be like the real life rematch of the NBA Finals. As the game reaches the 4th quarter, it gets more and more serious and more intense between the two of them. A friendly game of basketball between two cousins turns into an all out battle of plays and a war of words. The plays and words are the game within the game between the two because no one wants to lose. Back and forth, the score changes again and again between the dunks, alley hoops, 3-pointers.
