Last night the Golden State Warriors took on the Cleveland Cavaliers for Game 1 of the 2017 NBA Finals. The Warriors tied the NBA record for consecutive postseason wins at 13 with a 113-91 win over the Cavs. While the gentlemen were making magic on the court, mega pop star Rihanna, was making magic on the sidelines. There was no denying her presence as her enthusiasm took center court.
ESPN analyst Jeff Van Gundy was clearly ready to risk it all. After speaking on LeBron James’ dunk, Jeff said “I don’t know about this, but Rihanna just walked in front of me. Are you kidding me?” Jeff, you are me, we are each other. The fan out was top notch.

At some point during the game, Rihanna blessed the fans with a flawless dab. It’s very exciting to see women into the game of basketball. It’s well known that Rihanna is a fan of LeBron James and the Cavaliers as she was heard yelling brick while Durant was at the free throw line. This causes Kevin Durant to give a stare down. Girls just wanna have fun and Rihanna showed this all night long.

Hopefully Rihanna will be at all of the rest of the Finals games. I’m looking forward to seeing her fashions and what she has next for the Warriors team. Will she be the good luck charm that the Cavs need to win another championship? Only time will tell.
