Last night, James Hetfield and Kirk Hammett from Metallica performed the Star Spangled Banner before the Game 3 of the 2019 NBA Finals.
Despite the Golden State Warriors losing, it was still awesome to see Metallica show their support for the Warriors, like they do for all the Bay Area teams.
Here are some photos from their performance.
James & Kirk had the honor of kicking off Game 3 tonight by performing the National Anthem at Oracle Arena before the @warriors & @raptors tipped off. Thanks to the @nba & the Golden State Warriors – we had a blast crashing your party! Go Dubs! #NBAFinals
