Positive mantra machine DJ Khaled may have lined up deals with Apple Music, Roc Nation (Jay Z's his manager) and Epic Records but the We The Best CEO/ prolific Snapchatter is looking to make boss moves in the NBA.

"I would love to talk to the Heat to let me be an owner even if it's one percent," he told TMZ Sports about his favorite team, the Miami Heat. "Either way, I'm there, representing courtside and if I'm out of town, I'm representing. I bleed Miami. It's Miami Heat for life. It's Miami everything."

Like his "major keys" and #EllipticalTalk on the Snap, Khaled isn't shy about his Miami fandom, especially when Heat center Hassan Whiteside is a frequent house guest. The DJ/ producer also entertained the thought of Cleveland Cavaliers MVP LeBron James returning to M.I.A.

"I got nothing but love for LeBron James," he said. "If he came back to Miami, [it would be the] smartest decision he ever made in his career."
