Iman Shumpert not excited about trip to Bay Area after seeing San Andreas

Monday June 1st, 2015

The Cleveland Cavaliers have a full nine days between beating the Atlanta Hawks and the start of the NBA Finals, so naturally players are going to use some of that time off to relax, maybe catch a movie or two.

Cavs guard Iman Shumpert decided to go see the new film San Andreas, and it seems to have left a big impression on him. That's the Dwayne Johnson-led movie about the aftermath of a massive earthquake in California, the same California that the Cavaliers are scheduled to travel to for at least two games of the series. 

Shumpert was so shook up that he decided to playfully ask the Warriors if they wouldn't mind just doing the whole series in Cleveland. He's even pretty sure Golden State would agree once they see the movie themselves.

Alas though, the Warriors weren't exactly on board with Shumpert's suggestion. Their 39–2 regular season record at Oracle Arena probably has something to do with it.
