(Newser) – The NBA finals got underway Thursday, and one name making headlines isn't on either the Golden State Warriors or Cleveland Cavaliers. Yes, Rihanna allegedly shouted "Brick!" at Kevin Durant of the Warriors as he prepared to shoot a free throw, and, later, Durant appeared to stare her down after dropping a 3-pointer, per CBS Sports. When asked about the glare later, Durant brushed it off and said he didn't remember it. But according to the USA Today, there was a similar interaction between the two during the 2014 playoffs. As for the game, Durant's Warriors beat LeBron James' Cleveland Cavaliers, 113-91. (Rihanna is Harvard's Humanitarian of the Year.)
