When you don't believe in LeBron James, you end up losing...just ask Drake (and half the people watching the game Sunday night).

The Views rapper supposedly lost a $60,000 bet to French Montana over Game 7 of the NBA finals, during which James and the Cleveland Cavaliers took home the championship against the Golden State Warriors.

Montana took to Snapchat to gloat about his winnings over Drake, saying, "Shout-out to my brother Drizzy Drake for that 60 bands, 'cuz you ain't believe in LeBron."

In case you missed it, James completed the game with 27 points, 11 rebounds and 11 assists, obviously a major asset in the final score of 93-89. 

Drake has yet to respond about the bet, but whether or not it's real, it's not exactly a burden for the rapper. He recently joined hip-hop's richest rappers, according to Forbes, with a net worth of about $60 million.

In fact, Drake celebrated some of that success by spending the last week vacationing with Montana in the Dominican Republic. The two rappers—who are set to release a collaboration called "No Shopping" soon—shared several photos from their tropical adventures.

Meanwhile, LeBron James did not hide his emotions after Cleveland's big win Sunday, which marked the city's first-ever championship title.

"Cleveland's long sports nightmare has ended," ABC announcers shared as cameras caught the player on the basketball court shedding tears of joy. "The drought is over. 52 years, time to celebrate a title."

When being interviewed after the game, James tried to explain what exactly he was feeling at the moment.

"I gave everything that I have. I put my heart and my blood and my sweat and my tears in this game and—against all odds, against all odds, I don't know why we want to take the hardest road. I don't know why the man above gave me the hardest road but there's nothing the man above going to put new situations that you can't handle," he shared. "And I just kept the same, positive at attitude like, instead of saying why me? I was saying this is what he wanted me to do. Cleveland this is for you!"

Congrats again to the Cavaliers, and sorry about your loss, Drizzy!
