In another Instagram post, Simone hopped into the arms of the team's mascot Moondog while flashing her famous infectious smile.

'Had a good time at the Cavaliers Basketball game,' she wrote in the caption. 'Thanks for having me.'

The picture with LeBron is far from the first time that Simone has snapped a photo alongside a fellow world class athlete that has had viewers wondering if their eyes were playing tricks on them.
