They renewed hostilities of sorts Friday when James talked a little trash to Noah following a dunk. The Chicago Bulls center retorted with further smack, and both players were T'd up.
Following the game, James minced no words about the exchange, calling Noah out of line.
What was said is unknown, but it's not the first time James has accused Noah of crossing the line from general trash talk. In 2010, the two looked like they were going to come to blows after James danced on the court.
For his part, Noah viewed Friday's incident differently.
"Disrespectful? I got mad respect for LeBron," he said. "We're just two players trying to win a game. That's all"
