Game one of the 2017 NBA Finals was supposed to be yet another rematch between the Golden State Warriors' Steph Curry and Cleveland Cavaliers' LeBron James, but it ended up being a showdown between the Warriors' Kevin Durant and... Rihanna?
The singer-fashion entrepreneur is a devoted fan of King James, so she was very invested in the game:

The Warriors won, 113-91, and during the post-game press conference, Durant, who had 38 points, fielded questions about RiRi:

Rihanna was also popular with Warriors fans:

Rihanna bows to LeBron then hits a dab and small waves a Warriors fan telling her to sit down.
Jeff Van Gundy was mesmerized by the celebrity:
