This off-season, the Cleveland Cavaliers have been very busy, to say the least. After losing to the Golden State Warriors in the NBA Finals, the Cavs have parted ways with their General Manager David Griffin, gotten word of Kyrie Irving requesting a trade, and signing Derrick Rose to be their backup point guard.

While there has been a lot more negatives than positives, the one aspect of the Cavs off-season comes from LeBron James’ social media outlets. The most popular video came after the finals ended, James can be seen working out and putting on a show for his Instagram followers.

This started a social media challenge called the #LeBronChallenge and even Warriors’ point guard Stephen Curry joined in on the challenge at a wedding. As a result, Curry appeared to be mocking James with Kyrie Irving in attendance but that couldn’t be farther from the truth.

Following from Marcus Thompson II of The Athletic.

“It’s not something, if you look at it through the keyhole of just that 20 seconds, you don’t really understand what I’m doing. Ever since [LeBron] posted that first video, I’ve loved it because he made a song that maybe a lot of people wouldn’t have know pretty popular just by doing that video. So he’s got me doing that dance,” Curry said.
