LeBron James’ MVP performance didn’t stop with his triple-double in Game 7.
The Cleveland Cavaliers returned home Monday afternoon after defeating the Golden State Warriors the previous night to secure their first NBA title in franchise history. James, who was named the series’ MVP, continued to haunt the Warriors with an impeccable outfit selection.
Talk about throwing salt on the wound.
As if Warriors fans weren’t disappointed enough about Golden State blowing a 3-1 series lead and losing Game 7 on its home floor, King James took trolling to a whole new level by breaking out an Ultimate Warrior T-Shirt in addition to a hat featuring Kermit the Frog sipping tea.
The Ultimate Warrior shirt is an obvious shot at the Dubs, who won an NBA record 73 games during the regular season before entering the playoffs as the prohibitive favorites. The hat, meanwhile, stems from the popular Internet meme that’s meant to show up naysayers.
At least James opted to wear clothing, though. J.R. Smith was seen shirtless as the Cavaliers celebrated their NBA title in Las Vegas, and he still hadn’t covered up by the time the team landed in Cleveland.
