A few days ago, rap veteran Fabolous showed the Cavaliers some love.

Recently, some Cavs turned up at a Future concert.

Well, then perhaps he should have been at the Future concert outside of Akron on Saturday night, because LeBron James and the Cavs were having plenty of fun on a night off. The Cavs group, which included LeBron, J.R. Smith (of course) and Dahntay Jones, among others, stopped by the Blossom Music Center for Future’s “Nobody Safe Tour,” which also features Migos.

The Cavs were lit at the Future concert tonight. πŸ˜‚ (Submitted by @iamquincy_22)
