Barry Bonds turned up at Oracle Arena for Game 1 of the NBA Finals between the Cavs and Warriors

As has become an annual tradition in recent years, LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers are facing Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors in the NBA Finals.
Game 1 tipped off on Thursday night at Oracle Arena, and at least one particular Bay Area sports hero was in the stands for the occasion -- one Barry Lamar Bonds. 
Barry even got the pregame "here's-a-guy-entering-the-arena" video treatment usually reserved for basektball players on game day:

He was having a good time: 

And extended a friendly greeting to the cameras when spotted on the Jumbotron:

The smiling continued after the Warriors' wild 124-114 Game 1 victory, with Bonds grabbing a photo with Bay Area hip-hop legend E-40: 

This appearance comes a few days after Bonds was seen at BottleRock Napa, where he got up to some culinary adventures with esteemed chef Masaharu Morimoto and Ken Griffey Jr.:

Live your best life, Barry.
