How powerful are you when you have the ability to make teams switch their playoff game? Oprah Winfrey made the Chicago Bulls and Miami Heat reschedule their first game in the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Oprah is taping one of her final shows in the United Center arena in Chicago, where the first game was supposed to take place. The game was supposed to be on a Tuesday and now they’ve moved it up to Sunday.

It must be nice to have that kind of power to make someone switch their playoff time. Could you imagine what the coaches thought when they saw an email saying they were going to have to reschedule the game, per Oprah’s request?
