Before the Golden State Warriors managed to win Friday's NBA Finals showdown against Cleveland Cavaliers, the game was interrupted by a shirtless man running onto the court. 

The individual was escorted off the court by police after he ran onto the court with the words "Trump Sucks" written on his chest. According to BuzzFeed, the man was taken into custody and the event was not shown on ABC's broadcast. In the end, announcers quickly brushed the event aside and the Warriors beat the Cavs with a final score of 108-97.

The man was later identified as Vitaly Zdorovetskiy, who runs the Natural Born Pranksters YouTube group. Last month, he was taken into custody after climbing the Hollywood sign with a sign that said "I'm back." Both may have been promotional stunts for his Natural Born Pranksters movie. 

Next month, the Republican National Convention will be held in Cleveland at the Cavaliers’ home venue, Quicken Loans Arena.
