Rihanna stans for LeBron James. She was court side during Game 1 of the NBA Finals when James's Cleveland Cavaliers lost to Golden State Warriors and even began a friendly rivalry with the Warriors' Kevin Durant.

Unfortunately she couldn't spur the Cavs on to victory that night nor in the series, which ended on Monday night with the Warriors finishing championship winners by 4 games to 1.

Responding to the loss on Instagram, Rihanna shared the video above. The Disney classic Lion King is the setting for the elaborate analogy with LeBron as Mufasa, Rihanna as Simba, and Durant as the evil Scar. RiRi added in the caption that her feelings for Durant aren't for real "congrats to KD, cause....ROCNation," but as far as she sees it, "#KingisStillKingBitch."

Check out the video. The campaign to get Rihanna a role on the upcoming remake starts here.
