LeBron James won’t let the world forget the Warriors blew a 3-1 NBA Finals lead
Not that you could LeBron James is here to make sure no one forgets.
King James’ Halloween party for Cleveland Cavaliers teammates on Sunday included some amazing costumes, which we’ll get to in a second. But the unquestioned highlight was a fantastic shot taken at the Golden State Warriors team LeBron and company vanquished in last season’s NBA Finals.
James, of course, powered the Cavs to a comeback win in the series after being down 3-1, something that had never before happened in NBA Finals history. The flip side of that equation is that the Warriors became the first team in history to blow a 3-1 NBA Finals lead which has since become a running joke on the basketball internet.
And so we present to you this bit of decor from the Halloween party James hosted for Cavs teammates Sunday night. The photo above was shared on Instagram by DJ Steph Floss, and has since been making the rounds among hoop fans on social media.
Damn. Damn! DAMN! That’s an MVP-level burn.
Now, like we promised, here are some costume highlights from Sunday night.
Kevin Love and girlfriend Kate Bock went as Harry and Lloyd from Dumb and Dumber.
Mike Dunleavy Jr. and his wife, Sarah, went as Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears circa early the early aughts.

In conclusion, it’s good to be kings of the basketball world.
