NSFW: Rihanna wears see-through shirt to Nets playoff game

No one has ever accused Rihanna of being shy about showing off her body. But she doesn’t usually do it from the sidelines of an NBA playoff game.

The 26-year-old singer took in Game 3 of the Nets-Raptors playoff series at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center from courtside seats. The artist has regularly attended games, often with mentor Jay Z — a former part-owner of the Nets.

Oh, and did we mention she was wearing a completely see-through white shirt? (I suppose you’ve looked at the picture already.)

ESPN2 had no problem showing Rihanna on live TV during the game, so maybe this isn’t really all that NSFW after all. The reaction on Twitter was a little more, “Does she realize she’s more or less topless?”

Of note, there is a large Victoria’s Secret store right across the street from the Barclays Center. Someone may want to point that out to Rihanna in the future.

Jay Z and Beyonce, disappointingly, were not at the first Nets home playoff game this season, though billionaire owner Mikhail Prokhorov did fly over from Russia to take in his first game in months.

For the basketball fans, that’s Kentucky freshman James Young sitting to Rihanna’s right in the Blackhawks cap. Young, 18, just declared for the NBA Draft six days ago and now he’s sitting courtside with Rihanna. Not sure how he got those seats, but he’s certainly doing something right in his life. He’s likely to be a top-10 pick in June’s draft.
