During Game 1 of the 2015 NBA Finals, Rihanna’s backing for LeBron James caused Warriors owner Joe Lacob to switch seats.
In Game 1 of the 2015 NBA Finals, Rihanna attended to support LeBron James and his Cavaliers, which put Joe Lacob in a difficult situation.
You have supporters on your side just by virtue of being an NBA player.
Depending on how talented you are, you may have more or less supporters.
The NBA Finals between the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Golden State Warriors took place in June 2015.
In order to express her support for the King, Rihanna arrived at Oracle Arena with courtside tickets next to Warriors owner Joe Lacob and his fiancée.
Shuffling the seats
Joe Lacob had to relocate seats due of Rihanna’s applause for LeBron James. Who wouldn’t want to be seated next to Rihanna during an NBA Finals game?
Joe Lacob was initially seated between Rihanna and his fiance.
Lacob and his fiancee, though, shifted seats during the game.
He claimed that Rihanna’s support for LeBron James and the Cavaliers “irritated” him.
Either she was cheering for LeBron or Lacob’s fiancée.
After Kevin Durant and the Warriors defeated them in Game 1 of the 2017 NBA Finals, Rihanna defended LeBron James, yelling, “The King is still the King, B*tch!”
One of the biggest LeBron James fans is Barbadian pop and hip-hop superstar Rihanna, and she demonstrated this during the 2017 NBA Finals.
The “Kid from Akron” has thus far far surpassed all of those expectations in his 19 years playing in the NBA.
Several well-known celebrities, such as Rihanna, Drake, and Jay-Z, are among those fans.
RiRi, a Bron James fan
Rihanna, popularly referred to as Queen RiRi, has frequently attended the King’s games and enthusiastically supported his team.
The Queen attended Game 1 of the 2017 NBA Finals in Oakland to support LBJ.
After a difficult Game 1 defeat, Rihanna released a statement in LeBron James’ defence. LeBron James and the Cavaliers faced Stephen Curry and the Warriors in the NBA Finals for the third time in a row in 2017.
Queen RiRi made sure that everyone understood that the game wasn’t finished, even though the Cavaliers may have lost.
She addressed the media following the game and remarked, “The King is still the King, B*tch!”
Having the Queen’s endorsement is a huge advantage.
