Rihanna, LeBron James Superfan, Trolls NBA Star After Epic Win
Don’t be surprised if Rihanna shows up to the Cavaliers’ championship parade on Wednesday. Apparently she loves LeBron James just as much as the next person.
Other than showing the Cavaliers superstar some love on her hit single “Bitch Better Have My Money” — where she said she’s ballin’ bigger than all $77.2 million of LeBron — Rihanna threw some shade at Stephen Curry on Sunday after Cleveland ended its championship drought with a thrilling Game 7 victory against the Warriors. (This comes a month after Rihanna posted an image of herself with LeBron’s number, 23, written on her stomach with sunscreen, by the way).
First, Rihanna trolled Curry by posting a picture of him looking subdued with the caption “‘Ballin bigger than LeBron’ they said.”
Then, she posted a picture of LeBron cradling his two trophies like a baby with “Who y’all think y’all frontin’ on???!” and several hashtags like “#NeverLoseFaith” and “#OnYourTurf.”
And to top it all off, she snapped a photo of herself smiling at LeBron or the Larry O’Brien Trophy with the caption “Bae!” It’s probably safe to assume she’s referring to the former, but we can’t speak for RiRi in this situation.
Oh, and before you accuse Rihanna of being a bandwagoner, just know that Warriors owner Joe Lacob moved seats during Game 1 of last year’s NBA Finals because he couldn’t take Rihanna openly rooting for LeBron next to her. Rihanna also has a history of screaming “LEBRON!” outside of Cleveland’s locker room for whatever reason, so her love for the King is probably real.
Hell, Rihanna might even be the brains behind the “Bye Ayesha” shirts (that are selling like hotcakes) for all we know.
LeBron James became the first player in NBA history to lead all players on both teams in points, rebounds, assists, steals and blocks.
