Lebron James does a Janet Jackson as the Warriors pull level in Game 4
The Golden State Warriors beat Cleveland Cavaliers 103-82 last night.

THE GOLDEN STATE Warriors beat the Cleveland Cavaliers 103-82 last night to even the best-of-seven NBA finals at two games apiece.

Golden State forward Andre Iguodala had been consigned to a reserve role for 100 games during the season and playoffs, but he made his first start a memorable one Thursday.

The 31-year-old playmaker scored 22 points, grabbed eight rebounds and played aggressive defence against Cleveland star LeBron James in his team’s convincing win.

To add insult to James’ injury from the disappointing result, the star accidentally exposed himself on national TV momentarily as he adjusted his black compression shorts, causing an inevitable meltdown on social media as a result.

The incident was reminiscent of the 2004 Super Bowl, where Justin Timberlake accidentally exposed Janet Jackson’s breast briefly during an ill-fated half-time performance, prompting much subsequent controversy.

It was not the only notable incident involving James, who collided into a courtside camera, cutting his head in the process. His speedy return to the action thereafter consequently caused some critics to question the NBA’s concussion protocol.
