What’s an NBA Finals without LeBron James, right? Say no more, Bron fans, as the Los Angeles Lakers superstar is in attendance for Game 5 between the Milwaukee Bucks and Phoenix Suns.
It’s been a while since James’ presence has graced an NBA game after the Lakers’ early exit in the Playoffs. Ironically, he’ll be watching the same team who eliminated his squad in the first round.
Other than LeBron James, Phoenix will also host Adele, Kyler Murray, Lil Wayne, and Vanessa Hudgens to form a lineup that easily outshines any five-man combination on the court between the Bucks and Suns, per Jeff Zillgitt of USA Today Sports.

James’ name has been making the rounds as of late due to his movie “Space Jam: A New Legacy.” The recently-released flick, as of writing, has already raked in $32 million in its opening weekend, topping Marvel Studios’ “Black Widow.” The sight of him in a highly-watched series perfectly aligns with the release of his latest flick.
At this point, it’s everyone’s guess as to whom the Lakers forward roots for in the Finals. Safe bet suggests the Suns, though, as LeBron James is a close friend of Chris Paul and James Jones.
The Suns’ point guard is a banana boat crew member, so that’s already enough to describe how deep he is within James’ inner circle. Meanwhile, Jones was a long-time teammate of the future Hall of Famer, having spent a number of NBA Finals battles alongside one another.
