King James isn't trying to have a case of Bieber fever affect his pursuit for another NBA title.
TMZ Sports is reporting that there's a potential conflict between the two superstars over Cleveland's Quicken Loans Arena. According to the site, Justin Bieber had been scheduled to have a concert at the arena on April 26.
One problem...it's the same date that LeBron James's Cleveland Cavaliers are slated to face the Detroit Pistons in Game 5 of their Eastern Conference first-round matchup according to the newly-released NBA playoff schedule.
The potential saving grace in this dispute would be if King James and the Cavs could sweep the Pistons in four games of their best-of-seven series, making a fifth game unnecessary.
But if they can't get it done in four games, what happens then? Would Quicken Loans Arena really prioritize the Biebs over LeBron?
We took a look at the Cavs' playoff schedule, Bieber's tour dates and Quicken Loans Arena and saw that April 27 is an open date. So maybe Bieber could have his show then — just saying.
In fairness to the Biebs, he has been promoting the date as part of his Purpose tour for months. Perhaps Usher can step in and help the situation. After all, he had a lot to do with Bieber's rise as an artist and he is a minority owner of the Cavaliers.
There has to be some remedy.
