Twitter user @SpearsNBAYahoo tweeted, “For some odd reason, Rihanna screamed “LeBron…” several times by Cavs locker room.”

But before we assume the worst, Rihanna's latest hit song, "B--ch Better Have My Money," includes lyrics about LeBron, as she sings, "Ballin' bigger than LeBron." Since she hasn't released a music video for the song yet, maybe she wanted to reach out and see if he could make a cameo appearance?
