The Cleveland Cavaliers arrived in San Francisco yesterday ahead of Thursday night's game against the Golden State Warriors. The game will be the first of the 2016 NBA finals, and starts at 6:00 p.m. at Oracle Arena. ABC 7 reports that the team traveled from SFO yesterday by bus and arrived at the Four Seasons in San Francisco in the late afternoon, where the team is staying.
Warriors fans, of course, were there to great them. "I wanted to see LeBron James get off the bus, so I can tease him and let him know they're going down back to back," Marcell Jarvis, a proud member of Dub Nation, told the channel.

Meanwhile, former Barack Obama campaign manager/adviser and current Uber adviser David Plouffe tweeted out that despite his residency, he's rooting for the enemy.
