Not only does Usher have 2 brand new singles out, and many music awards, including 8 Grammys, the R&B superstar now has an NBA Championship win!
The singer was in attendance to cheer on his team, the Cleveland Cavaliers, at Game 7 of the 2016 NBA Finals on Sunday night in Oakland, CA at the Oracle Arena.
Lebron James led the Cavs to a 93-89 win over the Golden State Warriors for the team’s first-ever NBA championship. Usher has been a minority owner of the Cavs for 12 years, and he was extremely excited to celebrate the historic moment with the players, coaches and owners.
“I know I have the talent to entertain,” the singer told Forbes magazine in 2005, after he acquired the stake in the team. “Now I just want to be a great businessman.”
According to Forbes, Usher even played a role in helping convince James to return to Cleveland in 2014. Usher reportedly went on Twitter to convince James to come back after having switched to the Miami Heat in 2010. A day later, James announced he’d be returning to the Cavs.
Usher sang the National Anthem in Game 4 of the 2015 NBA Finals, which Cleveland ultimately lost to Golden State.
