Channing Frye gets affectionate with championship trophy in Instagram video
It’s hard not to be romantic about the sport of basketball. That much is especially true when your team takes home the NBA championship. Cavs big man Channing Frye is living proof.
After the Cavs lifted the Curse of Cleveland by defeating the Warriors to win the title on Sunday night, Frye posted a funny (and somewhat disturbing) video to his Instagram account of him getting intimate with the Larry O’Brien Trophy on the team flight out of Oakland.
That “Let’s watch The Notebook” line is definitely an all-timer.
For the 33-year-old Frye, it’s his first time cradling the trophy in his 11-year career, so you’ll just have to excuse him if he’s a little hands-on with it. Frye’s acquisition by the Cavs at this year’s trade deadline helped put the team over the top, and therefore he deserves his moment, even if he didn’t see many minutes during the Finals.
