Tim Reynolds: Rihanna, who was unable to virtually attend Game 4 of the NBA Finals, will virtually attend Game 5, the NBA announces. Also in the crowd tonight: Nas, Ellen Pompeo and Mickey Mouse, marking the first time that trio has appeared in the same tweet.
On Feb. 26, James posted a picture on his page to his 61,000,000-plus followers that showed him getting up for a dunk against the Pelicans from the night before. Hart was trying to defend James on the play and one of the pictures caught him in a precarious position. The post has attracted more than 2.7 million likes and one comment in particular picked up a lot of steam as Rihanna posted: “Anybody check on Hart?”
Hart took the comment in stride and sported a sweatshirt made by a friend with the comment as he walked into Friday night’s game against the Miami Heat. “Yeah, LeBron posted a photo of it — of the dunk. He made it look real bad,” Hart said following the game Friday. “It wasn’t as bad as it looked, but Rihanna commented on it. So as a joke, I just played it, ‘Hi Rihanna, how ya doin?’
