All is well between Drake and LeBron James. In fact, too well as many speculated that the rapper’s action post-Game 6 was a kiss and not just a congratulatory hug to the NBA superstar.
Twitter went crazy when a video of Drake allegedly trying to kiss James was shared online. In the video, the Cleveland Cavalier superstar was seen walking back to his locker room after the victory against Toronto Raptors, when the “Hotline Bling” singer approached James and congratulated him for the victory.
Many immediately shared the video and commented that it was a kiss. See tweets below.

Earlier in Game 6, James was seen yelling some words for Drake. During the last four minutes of the game, James received a pass from Kyrie Irving and then he drove baseline for a monstrous dunk. The Raptors then called a timeout and James was seen walking toward Drake, who was sitting at the courtside.
The basketball player then yelled words for the Canadian rapper, Washington Post reported. However, Drake does not seem to care and just continue sipping his drink.
