Maybach Music Group leader Rick Ross is not going to let the San Antonio Spurs defeat of his Miami Heat last night (June 15) bring him down and is still pulling for two-time NBA Finals MVP LeBron James. #StillKingJames
Although he did not address the loss, Ricky Rozay shouted out King James shortly after the game ended.
“Lebron the greatest,” Ross tweeted June 15 night. (LeBron James’ Twitter)
Despite an initially hard-fought series start, the NBA trophy ultimately came down to a 4-1 overall match-up win for the Spurs.
As a barrage of Patty Mills three-pointers added to the onslaught Sunday night, the decibel level inside the normally placid AT&T Center rose to jumbo-jet-on-takeoff proportions. The Spurs are champions once again, a 104-87 victory over the Miami Heat in Game 5 of the Finals giving them a fifth NBA title and presumably soothing much of the hurt that had lingered since the Spurs fell short in soul-crushing fashion last year in the final two games against the same team on the same stage.

Miami’s LeBron James raised eyebrows at the start of Game 5 with huge points.
The only thing James plays for is championships and this season, he didn’t get a chance to grasp the Larry O’Brien Trophy. A 31-point, 10-rebound effort wasn’t enough to get Miami past San Antonio, and the Heat fell to the Spurs 104-87 on Sunday night. So for the first time since June 21, 2012, the Heat are not NBA champions. This four-year run with James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh together has seen huge success — a league-best 283 wins, four straight trips to the NBA Finals to join only the Celtics and Lakers as franchises to pull off that feat, plus two NBA championships.

Recently, Miami native DJ Khaled aired out the San Antonio Spurs for allegedly compromising Game 1.
“They won that one game because they were cheaters. They won but they cheated — see they practiced with no [air conditioning]. … I respect everyone, but I can’t respect somebody turning the AC off and cheating. I can’t do it. And The Streets is saying they cheated.” (“First Take”)
