Rihanna who? Never heard of her.
Star player Steph Curry and other members of the warriors have gone to great lengths to deny a taste for RiRi, probably, most people think, because the she’s expertly trolling them from courtside seats, living her best life as a mega-LeBron James fan.
Curry was asked if the team listens to Rihanna in the locker room and he denied that the team had ever listened to her, after Rihanna and Kevin Durant had a championship level staring contest.
“I don’t think it was on there to begin with,” Curry said of Rihanna’s music, after listening to her yell ‘BRICK’ all night.
Reporter: “You haven’t banned Rihanna’s music from the locker room playlist?”

Other players similarly denied listening to the music in the locker room, but admitted that they appreciated listening to it personally.

Twitter, of course, suspected a cover up.
And demanded more of their star team:
I expect nothing but Rihanna playing in The Q when this series moves to Cleveland. https://t.co/QI7wY2fHPN

I’m not stressing over Steph Curry throwing light shade at Rihanna. Rih was dragging that boy when Cavs beat them last year

The Warriors, largely considered to be one of the best teams in NBA history, are hoping to win their second NBA title in three years.
And Rihanna was clearly the star of the NBA finals opener, so it’s cool. She doesn’t need them.
