Lil’ Wayne denied entrance by Thunder just because he didn’t have a ticket

Those strange people in Oklahoma City with their midwestern values. They confuse me. I cannot believe they would back a loyal local fan who paid for a courtside seat over a celebrity. They just do not get America.

Let me explain.

The Thunder are a sellout in Oklahoma City, especially during the playoffs. They have loud, loyal fans who have created a real college atmosphere at an NBA game.

So rapper and NBA fan ‘Lil Wayne showed up in Oklahoma City wanting a prime seat for Game 3. You know he’s done this plenty of times before, and you know the Lakers, Heat and other team accommodated (people in the front row were willing to sell for the right price). But the Thunder? From the Associated Press.

Thunder spokesman Dan Mahoney says Lil Wayne’s representatives did contact the team requesting tickets but insisted that he sit on the front row, and none of those seats was available. Oklahoma City sold out every home game during the regular season and playoffs this season.

Mahoney says: “We’d love to have him at a game, but like anyone else, he needs a ticket.”

Wayne took to twitter.


And that is how Spurs fans are created.

You know Jimmy Goldstein doesn’t have these problems.

    memo to lil wayne – “gangsta’s dont wear skinny jeans”……….them jeans are for girls!!!!

    imagine some paying customer who paid alot of money courtside being next to a guy at the game drunk”wayne is always drinking during the day and faded” and the smell of chronic lingering!!

    same scenario applies here as if you were flying on a plane,regardless who you are if there are no seats available then there is nowhere to sit!!! you dont have to be einstein to figure that one out!!

    Shouldn’t it just be Wayne anymore. Being “Lil” all these years is just stupid.

    Nobody will know this ass clown in 10 years anyway. Get used to it.

    Dear Lil’Wayne,

    This is 100% racist! It is because they want to keep the black man down.

    Why do they have a picture of Whoopi Goldberg?

    He was probably the reason why there were shootings in Thunder Alley.

    At least he appears to be cheering for the Spurs. That’s one good thing about him. Although I imagine it’s purely out of spite for OKC.

    Im just going to be upset when he dies, because the radio stations will play his songs all day on that day forever. He wanted floor seats b.c he is four foot eleven and can’t see over normal sized people.

    Did anyone consider that maybe the Thunder just didn’t want him there. He’s not exactly the guy you would want in your house playing with your kids. I’d like to think there are still organizations and people that have high values and try to abide by them when they can. Although I don’t know how they would explain Kendrick Perkins under those criteria.
