Everything Cleveland Cavaliers superstar Lebron James does is thought through, calculated, and measured. So it is no coincidence that James was wearing a shirt with his high school’s Fighting Irish logo on it during an interview before game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals against the Boston Celtics. Lebron was basically sending a subliminal message to the Celtics letting them know how the series was going to play out.
Let’s see what Twitter thought about Lebron’s choice of attire.
Is that a Leprechaun with a halo over his head on LeBron's shirt? 🤔 pic.twitter.com/5GsHXt1INi

LeBron James wearing a Celtics shirt during an interview today might be the biggest power move I've ever seen.

Apparently Lebron got his message across. As he had 38 points, 7 assists, 9 rebounds, and 2 steals in a 117-104 route of the Celtics in game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals. I guess we should have all seen the writing on the wall that this series was over before it even got started.
