Rihanna, Diddy, 2 Chainz, Nicki Minaj and more congratulate LeBron on his MVP-earning performance.

This year's NBA Finals was one for the history books. Just when thing seemed to be coming to a close for the Cleveland Cavaliers, The LeBron James-led team came back from a 3-1 lead, pushing Steph Curry and The Golden State Warriors to game 7, and eventually overcoming the seemingly unstoppable team in an extremely close final quarter. Naturally, the tension had many glued to their TV sets last night, even the biggest stars in music. While hip-hop artists were pretty evenly split in allegiance, pretty much everyone was in good spirits after the riveting final moments of the game, giving it up for both teams on social media, as well as sharing some well-deserved praise for LeBron's performance throughout the series (not to mention Kyrie Irving, Curry, and the many other talented athletes that kept the finals interesting). Some (*cough* Rihanna) were shadier than others, but for the most part, it was an event that brought everyone together to celebrate great sportsmanship. Jay Z even tweeted for the first time in months to celebrate the event. Take a look at the many reactions from various artists below.
