Boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr.— who tweeted derogatory comments about New York Knicks phenom Jeremy Lin being over-hyped because he was Asian— was spotted courtside making nice with the team's No. 1 fan Spike Lee last night in Miami.
Mayweather approached the Knicks fanatic during New York's 102-88 loss to the Miami Heat and the two shook hands, chatted and appeared to bury the hatchet.
Lee held a grudge against Mayweather because earlier this month the welterweight champ criticized— via Twitter— all of the attention Lin was getting based solely on his race.
"Jeremy Lin is a good player, but all the hype is because he's Asian," tweeted Mayweather. "Black players do what he does every night and don't get the same praise."
Lee took offense to the comment and immediately tweeted back .
"Floyd Mayweather I Hope You Watched Jeremy Hit The Gamewinning 3 Pointer With .005 Seconds Left.Our Guy Can BALL PLAIN AND SIMPLE.RECOGNIZE."
After last night's meeting, it looked like there was a truce.
"Floyd Mayweather And I Had A Great Conversation Courtside," Lee tweeted after the game. "We're MAD COOL.ALL LOVE.2Brotha's.YA-DIG."
Meanwhile, another huge Lin fan— and Mayweather's biggest rival— Manny Pacquiao was a little bummed out that he didn't get to see the Knicks player while he was in New York this week.
"It's too bad that I didn't get a chance to watch the game," said the welterweight at a press conference promoting his June 9 fight against Tim Bradley. "He's a good basketball player. I'm proud of him because he's from Asia."
Lin is actually from Palo Alto, Calif. but his parents are from Taiwan.
Pacquiao has also been the target of some of Mayweather's anti-Asian rants in the past.
Mayweather had the last laugh for now— after Lin was held to 1-of-11 shooting while turning the ball over eight times last night— but he will be headed to the cLINk in June for a domestic violence conviction.
