Last night, the Cavaliers and Warriors duked it out in Game 1 of the NBA Finals but instead of LeBron James or Steph Curry stealing the show, it was all eyes on Rihanna.

Throughout the game, the singer (who was cheering for LeBron and the Cavaliers) emerged as the real MVP, managing to distract just about everyone in attendance as well as everyone watching from home.

Sitting courtside, the singer was spotted rummaging through her vintage Dior bag, which sounds like an ideal way to pass the time at a basketball game.

In the first quarter, the singer distracted ESPN commentator Jeff Van Gundy during a live-play when she walked by him:

“I don’t know about this, but Rihanna just walked in front of me. Are you kidding me?!” he exclaimed, which is how all sports commentary should sound if you ask me.

Bad Gal Riri then went on to distract the players too, screaming at Warriors player Kevin Durant during a free throw. Her taunting led to an intense stare down from Durant not once but twice,

Finally, in the last quarter, Rihanna reminded everyone she’s the real MVP with a dab from sidelines


And when her team didn’t win, Bad Gal Riri brushed off the loss backstage, declaring LeBron is still the king.
