The NBA Finals rematch between the Cavaliers and the Warriors starts Thursday in Oakland, but LeBron James and the rest of the Cavs don’t seem too concerned about their impending grudge match with Golden State. James noted after the Eastern Conference Finals ended that they were going to enjoy this, and there’s been a stark contrast between how much fun the Cavs appear to be having on their run compared to the Warriors.
That difference is understandable. The pressure is off of the Cavs as they are both the defending champions and the underdogs in this series. Meanwhile, the Warriors have to beat the Cavs for revenge and to justify adding Kevin Durant to the team last offseason. So, in the spirit of enjoying the moment, LeBron James, J.R. Smith, and Tristan Thompson went out to see Future and the Migos at a show just outside of Akron on Saturday night, and had a great time from the video taken by others in the crowd.
It certainly doesn’t seem like they look too worried about their impending matchup with the juggernaut that is the Warriors. My favorite thing is that it looks like LeBron, J.R., and company are in some pretty normal seats. They’re not even in the very front rows or anything, and they’re just out there loving every second of “March Madness.” They’re genuinely just like every other fan there, ready to yell lyrics at each other while dancing. I really enjoy LeBron acting out the lyrics with his dance moves, specifically pretending to use an old timey camera for “shoot us movie.”
