The Cleveland Cavaliers lost their first playoff game of 2016 on Saturday falling to the Toronto Raptors, 99 to 84. Team leader LeBron James finished with 24 points and 8 rebounds. It was only slightly below his scoring average and he got very little support from his teammates. Nevertheless, the loss has lead conspiracy theorists to blame a photo that pop star Rihanna posted during game two in tribute to LeBron James.
The provocative bikini shot with LeBron’s number 23 decorating her stomach got tongues wagging about how distracted King James would be in the next game.
Some posited that Rihanna was trying to help her buddy (and rumored love interest) Drake’s team by distracting LeBron. Whether that last part is true or not Drake did troll LBJ on IG after the loss.
Is Rihanna surplanting Lil B as the new NBA curse?
