Not to be outdone by LeBron James’ Undertaker, Kevin Love goes all Stone Cold Steve Austin for Cleveland Cavaliers NBA Championship celebration

Mick Rouse on Twitter

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.


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:

Love 3:16 says... I just grabbed 14 rebounds and helped LeBron kick your ass.

It’s a lot better than eating a stunner from the MVP.
