LeBron James and Lil Wayne apparently are back on speaking terms.
At least that was the appearance at Tuesday night's Miami Heat-Indiana Pacers game at AmericanAirlines Arena.
In a Rolling Stone interview last month, the rap star expressed disappointment about not being greeted by James and teammate Dwyane Wade while he sat courtside at a Heat road game in New Orleans earlier this season.
"Come holla at me," the rap star was quoted in one of the less-profane portions of the interview. "At least come ask me why I'm not rooting for you."
Never miss a local story.
Courtside again Tuesday, there was the appearance of a dialogue, or at least acknowledgment from James.
"That's a question you need to ask him," James said, when asked if they were back on speaking terms. "For all the fans that come and watch us play, we just try to do our job and win ballgames."
James was seen offering a "What's up?" nod toward the rapper.
NBC-6s Adam Kuperstein approached Lil Wayne, an AmericanAirlines Arena regular, to ask if he and James now were cool and received a response of, "Oh, yeah, yeah."
Asked of exchange, James claimed ignorance, as he sat alongside Wade on the postgame podium.
"Did I? Did I?" James jokingly asked his teammate if such an acknowledgement took place.
Replied Wade, "You did?"
And that was it, with a team staffer redirecting questions back to the victory over the Pacers that extended the Heat's winning streak to seven.
