‘Ballin’ bigger than LeBron James they said ‘: when Rihanna exposed Stephen Curry on Instagram after the 2016 NBA Finals
Rihanna is perhaps LeBron James’ greatest fangirl, and her dominating performance in 2016 produced a classic little moment from her. At the cost of a certain Stephen Curry.
The Cavs-Warriors rivalry was the one that defined the NBA basketball scene of the mid-2010s. Golden State had built a local powerhouse based on the principles of offensive movement that enabled its best shooters of all times to move like shooting machines.
The Cavs, meanwhile, used what Kobe Bryant called a “two-kings” system. And any offense led by LeBron James is bound to be elite. Having a reliable scoring partner in Kyrie Irving has opened things up for him like never before.
The consequences were such that they met four times in a row in the final. Truth be told, it was really like LeBron James against the world for the most part.

While this was not the case in 2016 – Kyrie produced superb all-time performances to fuel their comeback – it was undoubtedly the crowning glory of James’ career.
2016 marks the only time a player has led both teams in all 5 stat categories for a series of finals. Their comeback from 3-1 down is a story to be told over and over again.
