NBA season starts in less than two weeks, which means players are practicing their wrestling moves just in case a scrum breaks out.
Many NBA stars have made no secret about their love for WWE in the past. At media day this past Monday, Dwyane Wade showed up in a Wade 3:16 hoodie. The numbers were meant to signify Wade's jersey number (3) and the season he's entering (16), but was also a shoutout to Steve Austin.
Following their NBA Championship victory in 2016, Cleveland Cavaliers stars Kevin Love and LeBron James celebrated in style. Love sported an Austin 3:16 shirt while doing his best impression.
James sported an Ultimate Warrior t-shirt, a nod to the WWE Hall of Famer and a shot at the team that blew a 3-1 lead.
Late Tuesday night, Lakers sophomore Kyle Kuzma got into the wrestling act, asking fans for their top 5 WWE finishers of all-time.
The tweet has over 2,000 replies. A notable reply comes from fellow NBA player and star point guard Damian Lillard.
Wrestling superfan Wale also chimed in.
Despite being longtime WWE fans, Kuzma and Lillard are unlikely to receive a custom Championship belt sent to them by Triple H when the season ends. Unless they join the Warriors.
