Celebrities are just like us: They walk their dogs, they go grocery shopping and they freak out over major sporting events like the 2016 NBA Finals. LeBron James and the Cavs secured the title after defeating the Golden State Warriors in Game 7, becoming the first team to overcome a 3-1 series deficit in NBA history.

While you were screaming at your television in either delight or dismay, celebrities took to Twitter to share their opinions. Here are some of our favorites:

In a controversial decision, Manu Ginobili declared 36th U.S. President Lyndon B. Johnson the MVP of the series.

Jay Z killed two birds with one stone, maximizing his tweet with shout-outs to the two teams and to fathers. He’s got 99 problems and 140 characters ain’t one.

Justin Timberlake told Warriors fans to cry him a river.

Magic Johnson reminded us that he used to be a really good basketball player. Oh, and is LeBron, too.

Tyra Banks found an opportunity to use LeBron’s emotional outpouring as commentary on the concept of masculinity.

We learned that Chris Bosh and Dwayne Wade are related to LeBron. Who knew they were brothers?

Kevin Hart claimed to be speechless and then proceeded to say a lot of things.

Ty Dolla $ign and Trey Songz were actually speechless.

Seth Meyers threw some shade at the Browns.
