West Coast rapper Game recently talked sports and revealed putting up a few dollars on his hometown Los Angeles Lakers going further than the Miami Heat in next year’s NBA playoffs.
According to Game, he has more faith in Kobe Bryant and the Lake Show going further than LeBron James‘ Heat.
“The bet is for, it’s just a gentlemen’s bet for a hundred bucks if the Lakers go farther than the Heat in the playoffs,” Game said in a video. “We doing that. [Doesn’t matter if we’re slow,] we’re the Lakers. We the Lakers. Y’all banners kinda lonely. … In LA, which is a totally different side of America, the banners matter. That’s why they’re there, man, we care about our banners.” (Vlad TV)
Recently, Atlanta’s Waka Flocka Flame dished out his disgust in both Kobe Bryant and LeBron James.
“As a basketball player, I’ll say Kobe Bryant,” Waka said in an interview. “And I hate Kobe Bryant. I feel like LeBron’s a sellout. No matter what nobody say. As a kid growing up it was never about no check or no ring. It was about, ‘I play basketball, man. I’m happy because I’m in the NBA.’ Now everybody, it’s like a check and a ring.” (WiLD 94.9)
Over the summer, renowned movie director Spike Lee took a similar stance when asked about Kobe and LeBron.
The way Lee figures it, if his beloved Knicks aren’t in contention for the NBA title next season, he wouldn’t mind seeing L.A. win their 12th championship since moving to Los Angeles more than 50 years ago. For Spike, anything would be better than seeing New York rivals LeBron James and his Miami Heat win another championship. “I rather the Lakers win it than the Heat,” he said. “I do not want the Heat to win back-to-back. Hell no, hell-to-the-nah.” (MTV)
Once a Lebron fan, Cleveland’s Machine Gun Kelly predicted James would lose in the NBA Finals last June.
LeBron James and the Miami Heat will tip-off against the Oklahoma City Thunder to begin the NBA Finals Tuesday night (June 12). One rapper who definitely does not want to see King James and the Heat capture the NBA title is Machine Gun Kelly. After spitting the line, “Never mind that’s just Kells with that Heat, no LeBron though,” on his hit, “Wild Boy,” the Cleveland MC echoed that sentiment on a recent radio station stop “Oh no, he’s not taking it,” MGK said in reference to LeBron on Power 107.5. “If he doesn’t do it this year, then he won’t do it again.” (XXL Mag)
