Wiz Khalifa, Flo Rida, Tyrese Gibson and Kendra Wilkinson were among those who took to Twitter to share their reactions to the team's defeat of the Oklahoma City Thunder.

The Miami Heat defeated the Oklahoma City Thunder to take home the NBA championship Thursday night, and it appears that LeBron James' team has several fans in Hollywood.

Many in the industry hit Twitter to congratulate the team, which defeated the Thunder 121-106 in Miami in Game 5 of the finals. James -- who angered many NBA fans in 2010 when he left the Cleveland Cavaliers after an auction for his services to sign a huge free-agent contract with the Heat -- scored 26 points, including five three-pointers, and added 13 assists and 11 rebounds in a spectadcular triple-double to capture his first NBA title in his nine years as a pro.
