Lebron James Reviews ‘Pitch Perfect 2’ During NBA Finals Press Conference
A key storyline for Lebron James heading into tonight’s NBA Finals, is the difference between this series and previous finals. This will be his sixth NBA Finals in his 12- year career: this is his second with Cleveland and he also went to four straight in Miami.
So after winning two and losing three of them, how has he been preparing for his sixth? Is he more relaxed? Does he still do a ridiculous amount of prep work? Everyone wants to know his approach. And to be honest, James has been awfully calm through shootrounds — even seen smiling and joking around — and his press conferences.
And during his latest press conference, he talked about going to the movies and offered up his review on Pitch Perfect 2.

When asked about the pressures from the finals and his inability to just cool off in public, Lebron responded candidly. “Well, I’m able to pick and choose. I do normal stuff, I guess. I went to the movies last week, at a regular movie theater… I went to go see — what’s the movie with the girls and they be singing — Pitch Perfect 2.”
As for his thoughts on the film, “it was unbelievable. Fat Amy is awesome. I love her. Wherever you are, you’re awesome.”
And when the best basketball player in the world gives you praise during the NBA Finals, it does not go unnoticed. Afterwards, Rebel Wilson, the actress that plays Fat Amy, tweeted a thank you to Lebron.
Thanks @KingJames for the shout out today, your taste in movies is as amazing as your basketball!
