Published Add your comment

Miami Heat star LeBron James has posted a photo on Instagram praising his friend Jay-Z for winning two Grammy Awards on Sunday night.

Jay-Z secured the awards for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration and Best Music Video categories, prompting LeBron to post this photo on photo-sharing app Instagram.

"YES! It's still Roc La Familia," the forward wrote. "Congrats to the Big Homie getting those Grammys. #RocBoyz #GoldSippyCups #StriveForGreatness"

Jay-Z won the best Best Rap/Sung Collaboration award for "Holy Grail", which he performed alongside Justin Timberlake.

While the Best Music Video award was for his cameo on Timberlake's hit record "Suit & Tie".

LeBron is a keen user of Instagram, having posted 567 photographs since signing up to the service.

The NBA legend currently has 4.7 million followers, but follows just 226 users back.

LeBron has a close friendship with Jay-Z. Back in September, Jay-Z and wife Beyonce performed at the basketball star's wedding.
