There has been no shortage of drama during this year’s NBA finals.
Superfan Drake trolled Golden State while in Toronto. Warriors fans underestimated the defensive capability of the Raptors. Instagrammers overreacted to Nicole Curran leaning past Beyoncé to talk to Jay-Z.
We also had the “incident,” where part-owner of the Warriors, Mark Stevens, shoved Raptors guard, Kyle Lowry, after an unexpected dive for the ball sent him into the floor seats at Oracle, it’s been pretty lit.
Even Lebron weighed in.

🗣There’s absolutely no place in our BEAUTIFUL game for that AT ALL. There’s so many issues here. When you sit courtside you absolutely know what comes with being on the floor and if you don’t know it’s on the back on the ticket itself that states the guidelines. But he himself being a fan but more importantly PART-OWNER of the Warriors knew exactly what he was doing which was so uncalled for. He knew the rules more than just the average person sitting watching the game courtside so for that Something needs to be done ASAP! A swift action for his actions. Just think to yourself, what if @kyle_lowry7 would have reacted and put his hands back on him. You guys would be going CRAZY!! Calling for him to damn near be put in jail let alone being suspended for the rest of the Finals all because he was protected himself. I’ve been quite throughout the whole NBA playoffs watching every game (haven’t missed one) but after I saw what I saw last night, took time to let it manifest into my thinking 🧢 I couldn’t and wouldn’t be quiet on this! #ProtectThePlayers #PrivilegeAintWelcomeHere
With all the hype going into tonight’s game, we thought it’d be a good idea to bring some levity. So, if you’re feeling nervous about whether the Warriors can even the series, lest they fall behind 3-1, then this hilarious video starring Guillermo from Jimmy Kimmel Live! and his media day antics is just the LOL you need.
