Sighting: LeBron James, Miley Cyrus party at The Underground

Miley Cyrus partied Friday at The Underground, but the 21-year-old “Wrecking Ball” singer wasn’t even the most famous person at the club that night. That honor goes to LeBron James.

The NBA mega-star – in town to face the Bulls at the United Center Sunday -- made an appearance at Y-Bar and then hit The Underground with Miami Heat teammate Chris Bosh. Cyrus headed to The Underground after performing Friday at Allstate Arena. She was joined by opening act, Icona Pop, who was spotted earlier that night at Nellcote and Drumbar in the Raffaello Hotel.

Rounding out the star-studded night at Underground was Larenz Tate (“Rescue Me”). The Chicago native is scheduled to appear Saturday at Lumen.

James is expected to attend former Cleveland Cavs teammate Zydrunas Ilgauskas' jersey retirement ceremony Saturday in Cleveland before returning to Chicago for Sunday's game. Cyrus will perform Sunday in Milwaukee.

Judging by past tweets, it appears James is somewhat of a Cyrus fan. He complimented her twerking last year, tweeting “She gettin it!!!” And after her American Music Awards performance in November, James gave Cyrus another compliment via Twitter, this time with a side of constructive criticism: “Miley Cyrus has a great voice! Can sing for real. Just turn down the shananigans a lil and she winning!”
