Jay-Z and Blue Ivy Carter talk with LeBron James after a basketball game between the Los Angeles Clippers and the Los Angeles Lakers at Staples Center on March 8, 2020 in Los Angeles.

The 8-year-old got her signed basketball.

Blue Ivy Carter had the best Sunday night (March 8) ever. The 8-year-old caught the Lakers/Clippers game at the Staples Center on a school night and dad Jay-Z managed to get the shy third grader an autographed basketball from LeBron James.

In a video of the cute meet-up, the bashful NAACP Image Award winner joined pops in congratulating LeBron after the Lakers win, averting her eyes as the two men shook hands in footage posted by ESPN.

Blue Ivy smiles when she greets 'Bron, then asks for his signature. "Okay, I got you," James says. "You got school on Monday?"

The b-ball legend then promises her that she'll have the keepsake by the end of the school day on Monday.
