You Might Not Want To Sit Next To Rihanna During A Basketball Game
Most people would die for a chance to sit next to Rihanna at a basketball game, or anywhere else, for that matter, but Golden State Warriors owner Joe Lacob wasn't thrilled to be seated near to Rih Rih during Game 1 of the NBA Finals.
Apparently, when Rihanna attends an NBA game, she's there to root enthusiastically for her favorite team and favorite player and she doesn't care who's offended.
Lacob revealed that he changed his kid's seats to accommodate a courtside request for Rihanna during the Warriors' first match up against the Cleveland Cavaliers, only to have her root very loudly for LeBron James and the Cavs.
“I took my two kids, who like to go to a lot of games and I booted them down to the end of the court and seated her next to me," Lacob explained during a panel called "Minds Behind The Game" on Friday. "Seat her next to the owner, it’s a nice thing to do."
Definitely a nice gesture. But then...
“She was rooting for LeBron the whole game, and finally I got irritated and I said (whispering), ‘I am the owner of the Warriors,’” Lacob revealed. But that didn't stop Rih from applauding and cheering.
“Finally, I just said, ‘that’s it,’ and I moved a few seats away.”
So, in summary, Joe Lacob is probably the only man who's ever changed seats to get away from Rihanna -- and she probably didn't even care.
