"Cause on the side of every great man...you could find a woman like a soldier holdin' him down," - Ne-Yo
Mega congratulations to the Cleveland Cavaliers. Last night, the LeBron James-led team supermarket sweeped the Atlanta Hawks 4-0 to become once again the Eastern Conference Champions! It's the team's second trip to the NBA Finals after achieving the feat in 2007, and LeBron's fifth straight trip after winning two championships with the Miami Heat.
And like the old saying goes, behind every great man is a woman!
Those women were all present to watch their men play, win, and take home the 14-pound silver trophy yesterday. LeBron's wife Savannah couldn't contain her excitement as she took a selfie with her hubby and their two boys, writing on Instagram, "Say word!!!! #EasternConferenceChampions #DatBoyGood."
And Teyana Taylor, who's been dating Iman Shumpert for a year, was super stoked as well, writing, "CONGRATSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS 2 da guyzzzzzzzz!!! #Cavs #FINALS #4 #TheLand #OnTheDaNext" Tey also posted a clip of her vying for a spot on the team in case, "Bae misses a shot."
Also in attendance was Kendrick Perkins wife Vanity, and J.R. Smith's girlfriend Ashley Weatherspoon (Fabolous's former assistant).
And of course, the players were just as happy as their wives and girlfriends with Iman and JR Smith uploading clips of their fellow teammates LeBron, Kyrie Irving, rising star Tristan Thompson and the rest of the guys turning up in the hot tub. Champagne on deck!
The Cavs will play against the Steph Curry-led Golden State Warriors at the NBA Finals June 4th. Yes, we know The Warriors have a game tonight against the Houston Rockets, but is there any doubt GSW will take this?
