When the Cavaliers arrived back in Cleveland after beating Golden State in Game 7 of the NBA Finals, Lebron James was wearing an "Ultimate Warrior" t-shirt.
Was he sending a message to the Warriors?
"Well, it’s funny, because my wife bought ... she asked me who are my favorite wrestlers of all-time, and I told her, 'Sting, Stone Cold Steve Austin, Ultimate Warrior, The Undertaker, and Ric Flair.' Those are some of my favorite guys ever growing up," LeBron recently explained to Business Insider. "So, one day I get home from practice, and there's these t-shirts laying in my bedroom, and my wife purchased them from a store.
"So, throughout the whole playoffs, I was kind of -- you guys might remember, one time, I had the Undertaker shirt on -- so I packed them all throughout the playoffs. And the shirt that I had on to come home in, I wore in Vegas, and my teammates sprayed me with champagne, and it got soaking wet, so I had to throw it in the trash.
"And the only other shirt I had in my bag was my 'Ultimate Warrior' t-shirt. That was the only one because all our bags are underneath the plane. So the only one I had was the 'Ultimate Warrior' t-shirt that was packed in my travel luggage.
"And that’s what I put on. You can ask any one of my teammates. No one believes — everybody thinks it was set up that way, but it really wasn’t. But It kind of worked out that way."
The Warriors play in Cleveland on Christmas Day, and host the Cavs on Jan. 16.
