Rihanna’s cheering for LeBron pushed Warriors owner to switch seats in Game 1
OAKLAND — I would tell you that pop star Rihanna was sitting courtside for Game 1 of the NBA Finals, but you already knew that because the ABC broadcast made sure you knew that.
She was sitting next to Warriors co-owner Joe Lacob, who midway through the game moved a couple seats down away from her, putting his fiancee in between them.
Twitter loved that and speculation came up that it was the fiancee that didn’t want her man sitting next to Rihanna. But Lacob, at an event the next day, said he moved for a different reason — Rihanna wouldn’t stop cheering for LeBron.
The Warriors are not going to be making a lot of adjustments on the court for Game 2, but one thing may be different: If Rihanna is there no way Lacob moves his kids out of the prime seats for her again.
