LeBron James and company might have left Orlando on Sunday night with their heads down after losing to the Magic, leaving the Cleveland Cavaliers down 2-1 in the Eastern Conference Finals.
But Cavaliers minority owner Usher was in good spirits as he took in the NBA playoff series from his courtside seat, and he even brought a friend — embattled R&B singer Chris Brown — with him to Game 3. Of course, earlier this year Usher courted controversy by telling Brown, on a video posted on Jermaine Dupri’s Web site, to “have a little remorse” over his alleged altercation with Rihanna; photos had emerged of Brown gleefully riding a jet ski that week. Usher later apologized for the remark.
The two singers chatted it up throughout the game, which may have provided Brown with some distraction from his upcoming court appearance later this week.
