Metallica Play National Anthem - NBA Finals Game 5

Game 5 of the NBA Finals between the Cavs and Warriors at Oracle Arena got off to a wicked start tonight, and it had nothing to do with LeBron James of Steph Curry.  Heck, not even Klay Thompson had a part in tonight’s opening highlight, which took place during the pregame ceremonies and involved James Hetfield and Kirk Hammett of Metallica.

The two artists are natives of California, so the Warriors deemed them appropriate choices to belt out the Star-Spangled Banner on their guitars prior to tipoff.

It was pretty awesome.  Check it out:
