The amount of shade thrown at the Golden State Warriors during the Cleveland Cavaliers' Halloween party this year has now reached peak levels. As you may recall, there was the band "3-1 Lead," a not so subtle reference to how the Warriors blew a 3-1 lead over the Cavaliers in the NBA Finals. Maybe you have seen a meme or two about it.
There were also cookies made in the shape of tombstones with the names of the Splash Brothers, Steph Curry and Klay Thompson, which drew an incredibly weird response from a bewildered Thompson. "Yeah, I don't get it, cuz I'm not dead," Klay said, per Sam Amick of USA TODAY Sports. Apparently, the shots taken at Steph didn't end there. According to ESPN's Dave McMenamin, there was a dummy dressed up like Curry placed on the floor of the haunted house in such a way that all guests were forced to step over it in order to come inside. Damn.
While all these shots at the Warriors have been pretty hilarious, one can't help but wonder if karma will come back to haunt the Cavaliers. With the teams extremely likely to face one another in the NBA Finals for the third year in a row, the Cavs could be setting themselves up to be humbled when that series comes to an end.
Either way, we're going to watch this all unfold like...
