Rihanna’s influence on NBA games is well documented—stats show that teams play substantially better when she’s there. Last night, she sat court side at the first game of the NBA Finals between the Cavs and the Warriors.
Clearly, something she saw made an impression on her, because after the game she felt a burning desire to convene with the game’s top scorer, Lebron James.
Several reputable sources claimed that she was yelling his name repeatedly after the game near the locker rooms, including Yahoo! Sports editor Marc Spearer.
“For some odd reason, Rihanna screamed “LeBron” several times by Cavs locker room,” he tweeted.
