LeBron James gave the fan who ran onto the court during Wednesday's Heat-Cavs game a little bit of Twitter love on Thursday.

The fan, James Blair, dashed onto the court and approached James while wearing a T-shirt that read:  “We Miss You” on the front and “2014 Come Back" on the reverse. James patted him on his head before he was escorted off by security.

Blair then tweeted at James: " @KingJames appreciate you showing love when I came on floor last night follow back homie!!!! #TeamLeBron"

Responded James: "Yesir! Brave guy"

While it was nice of James to be sympathetic toward a fan, let's hope that his interaction doesn't encourage more fans to storm the court, creating a potentially dangerous situation for athletes.

As for Blair, he seems to be enjoying his moment of fame.

"LeBron mentioned me and followed me I didnt expect this to take off or be like it has got lol," Blair tweeted
