Rihanna’s Latest Instagram Post Reinforces The Notion That She Is Absolutely Obsessed With LeBron James

LeBron James became the first player in NBA history to average a triple double in an NBA Finals series, posting ludicrous numbers through five games–33.6 points, 12.0 rebounds and 10.0 assists. James also became only the fourth player in NBA history to lose five Finals series (James’ teams were underdogs in six of his eight Finals series).

Haters will harp on the latter stat, but when you consider Tristan Thompson was a mannequin for most of the series, K-Love only plays well when the Cavs are rolling, and J.R. Smith failed to deliver one of his J.R. Smith-esque games, a convincing loss at the hands of a historical juggernaut should not diminish LeBron’s greatness.

Rihanna, LBJ’s most famous superfan is doing everything in her power to support her hardwood hero, including releasing ย thisย video after LeBron James and the Cavaliers fell to Golden State on Monday night.

Rihanna’s borderline obsession for LBJ has been unwavering and well-documented over the years, as RiRi has unabashedly posted several things to social media praising James through thick and thin.

Here are just a few of them.

The anti-drug people gave him a $50 savings bond for his brave contribution to crime-fighting, and upon the bondโ€™s maturity 10 years later, he used it to buy his very first bag of marijuana.
