Game 1 of the 2020 NBA Finals is underway, and the broadcast revealed some high-profile virtual guests in the first quarter of the contest.
Barack Obama, Dwyane Wade, Pau Gasol, Shaquille O’Neal, Paul Pierce, Ray Allen, and Robin Roberts were among the celebrity guests tuning into the game. I guess this would be a home game for the Lakers if we weren’t in a pandemic, so it makes sense that there’s tons of notable people in the crowd. This is probably a more than what most people expected though. It’s safe to say there will me more surprise appearances throughout this series. I’m hoping the LeBron James kid from vine gets the spotlight in Game 2.
