Rhianna is one of very few people capable of stealing the spotlight during a showdown between living legends LeBron James and Steph Curry.
A living legend in her own right, the grammy award winner made quite the entrance at Oracle Arena in Oakland, California on Thursday, as she sauntered to her courtside seat in the middle of the first quarter during Game 1 of the NBA Finals. Even the seasoned announcers couldn’t help but notice the 29-year-old singer’s arrival.
ESPN/ABC commentator Jeff Van Gundy was all of us when his excitement for the Grammy-winner momentarily eclipsed a slam dunk by James. “I don’t know about this, but Rihanna just walked in front of me. Are you kidding me?” Gundy exclaimed.
It didn’t take long for Rihanna, dressed in all black, to get into full spectator mode in (and out of) her seat beside her personal assistant, Jennifer Rosales.
