It seemed like a harmless little joke when the Cleveland Cavaliers were down 3 games to 1 in their best-of-seven NBA Finals series to the Golden State Warriors.
LeBron James broke out some Undertaker merch, and we all had a laugh. It’s fun when famous people rep our fringe pastime. But no team in basketball history had won a series they trailed 3 - 1.
Then, the whole organization - and city of Cleveland - got involved for game six. But still, the Warriors had the best record in NBA history this season. They’re lead by back-to-back most valuable player winner Steph Curry.
Well, they stormed all the way back tonight, cashing in their version of a Money in the Bank briefcase and making history by winning the belt on Golden State’s home floor.
AND THAT’S THE BOTTOM LINE, CAUSE KEVIN LOVE SAID SO!

Yep, that’s Kevin Love, the oft-criticized forward of Cleveland’s “Big Three”, following King James’ lead by rocking the Attitude Era merchandise for his post-game SportsCenter interview. And it’s not just some shirt he found lying around.
Love enjoyed some Steveweisers in the locker room, too:
