Kanye West Commandeers Mic at NBA Finals Post-Game Press Conference
NBA post-game pressers are getting a lot more attention than usual at this year's finals -- first there was Riley Curry singing Big Sean and Drake's "Blessings," and now Kanye's decided to grab the mic (though thankfully not from the Warriors star's daughter) for a little NBA role-playing.
Just a few days after Kim Kardashian rented out L.A.'s Staples Center for the rapper/basketball fan's birthday, Kanye West was back on the court as a spectator at Game 4 of the NBA Finals in Cleveland. Once it became clear that the Warriors were going to emerge triumphant, Kanye decided to visit the media room (?), which was being set up for the players' post-game Q&A.
Kanye sat behind the same mic that Steph Curry and LeBron James would later face and played the worn-out athlete for a few (non-existent) questions. "I'm extremely exhausted, you know, by the floor," he said, feigning seriousness. "This next game we gotta go harder," he added, as one member of his entourage jokingly said to another "That's Riley!"
Funny Kanye is one of the best Kanyes -- watch the full video below:
