Rick Ross says that he holds NBA player LeBron James in high regard.

“Lebron the greatest,” the Miami rapper tweeted yesterday (June 15) about James, who plays for the Miami Heat.

The Heat were defeated by the San Antonio Spurs 104-87 yesterday, ending the 2014 NBA Finals. The Spurs won the seven-game series 4-1.

James led the Heat to the 2012 and 2013 NBA Championships.

The Heat and James lost the 2011 Championship to the Dallas Mavericks.

James played for the Cleveland Cavaliers during the 2006-2007 NBA Season and lost the 2007 NBA Championship to the Spurs.

Last week, both DJ Khaled and Lil Wayne said that the Heat would win the 2014 NBA Championship.

Rick Ross’s tweet from yesterday is as follows:
