LeBron James and Damian Lillard have cleared the air concerning some negative tweets Lillard posted more than three years ago that became public last week.

In summer 2011, while Lillard was still at Weber State University, he published a series of tweets that were critical of James, most of them during that year’s NBA Finals when James struggled and the Miami Heat lost to the Dallas Mavericks. Lillard’s posts were in a batch of unflattering but dated tweets from current NBA stars that surfaced recently and made the rounds on the Internet.

Lillard called James shortly after the old tweets appeared in order to explain them.

(Said James:) “He came to me before [the tweets] even got to me. We hashed it out right there, so no big deal.”
