LeBron James and Stephen Curry are facing off once again this summer.

The pro-basketball stars β€” fresh off the NBA Finals, in which James’ Cleveland Cavaliers best Curry’s Golden State Warriors in Game 7 on Sunday night to take the championship β€” will face off at the ESPY Awards next month in two categories: best male athlete and best NBA player. (James is in the running for the latter for a 12th consecutive year.)

James and his teammates, along with Curry, Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton and Washington Nationals right-fielder Bryce Harper, also lead the overall ESPY nominations, which were announced Wednesday.

The 2016 ESPYs will be hosted by WWE star and actor John Cena and air live on ABC at 8 p.m. ET (delayed PT) July 13 from Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles. Fans can vote on the awards at ESPYS.com starting Wednesday.

As previously announced, Zaevion Dobson will be honored with the Arthur Ashe Courage Award and Craig Sager will be honored with the Jimmy V Perseverance Award.

A complete list of nominations can be found below.
