Rick Ross Labels LeBron James

The San Antonio Spurs defeated the Miami Heat in the 2014 NBA Finals.

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:

    playing with friends doesn't mean automatic championships. its pretty much cheating and manslaughter...and a lack of one's confidence. Im happy the Heat are exposed, they been cheating the last few years.

    'look at the scoreboard, we winning' .... phat boy is full of memories. lebron in 2-3 in Finals....not the greatest. keep it moving. if anything he is the flashiest biggest showoff, that doesnt promote team work. He had a better team in Cleveland.

      Name another star player on that Cavs team that last year. The past two seasons Miami had Wade, Bosh, Allen, and plenty of quality off the bench players. They won 2 titles in a row, and simply looked tired this time around. It's not earth shattering that they lost.

      Lets not even mention that MJ left the court in between Three-Peat runs. This chump is no where near Jordan! And that fat fuck Rick Ross never played a sport in his life unless you want to consider Pie-Eating contest. Ross calling James the greatest has no credibility!

      Ross used to play football. He went to college to play and study criminal justice with hopes of being a cop before he flunked out and became a toy cop.

      MJ had help.

    Lebron is the single greatest basketball player on this planet. The Spurs are the best team. Wade was 4-12 in game 5. It's over for the Heat but Lebron is still the greatest. Only Kawhi Leonard can debate that HA!

    Coming from William 'Officer Ricky - the Fake Rick Ross' Roberts - THE BIGGEST FRAUD IN HIP HOP HISTORY that means absolutely nothing! Like another fat blowhard DR. KHALID declaring 'Miami the Winner'! GTFOH!!!!! Like the current state of 'hip hop stars' MIAMI HEAT are LOSERS! F*CK the Fake ROSS & ANYTHING he says! PUNK AZZ B*TCH!

    As Ross' touring manager and MMG's personal attorney, we feel that Mr James and the entire Miami Heat were robbed of their chance to claim ultimate victory. DJ Khaled has informed me that the streets informed him that the Spurs cheated and we are currently investigating the matter, and if that is the case, we will take legal action against the Spurns and take them to court. We will demand that the championship be revoked, thus making the Heat the winners by default. In the meantime, Maybach Music Group wishes LeBron James the best of luck and will continue to support him in the coming years to follow. As for right now, we are now celebrating his best efforts on Ross' private jet drinking champagne, smoking the finest Cuban cigars, and also mingling with the finest and most loveliest women on the planet. This is how true masterminds celebrate life by planning ahead #bawse

      Guess you forgot how the Spurs murdered the Heat three games in a row? I don't know any other team that has done that during their Big 3 era.
