Grammy-winning rapper Lil Wayne just can’t win during this NBA playoffs as the hip-hop star claims he once again ran into problems with the Oklahoma City Thunder arena staff for last night’s NBA Finals game.
Mum on the details, Weezy lashed out at the Thunder and vowed his support the the Eastern Conference champions the Miami Heat.
“Again I was treated like sh!t by the Thunder arena staff…dam..I hope da Heat beat da dog sh!t out em!!,” he tweeted June 13th. (Lil Wayne’s Twitter)
In early June, Weezy F. Baby discussed his problems with the team’s arena staff prior to Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals.
The rapper said two Thunder players – Kevin Durant and James Harden – had reached out to offer him tickets to Saturday’s fourth game of the Western Conference Finals. “That’s not the point, though,” he told The Associated Press in an interview Friday night. “It’s the players stepping up but of course the players aren’t white. I don’t want to be sitting there on behalf of you and I’m sitting next to a (person) that’s like ‘I don’t want this (guy) sitting next to me.’ (Forget) you … I’m in Forbes,” he said, laughing. He said he typically procures tickets for such games “from this guy named Mike.” Lil Wayne said Mike had requested special security, parking and entrance for the rapper, but Mike said the team responded that they would only sell the seats for Mike’s personal use.

In light of the public dispute, Thunder star player James Harden publicly extended his hand to Wayne.
“@LilTunechi Come to the Next game. We got seats for u 5! Whooppp!,” he tweeted June 1st. (James Harden’s Twitter)
Harden and Weezy are both connected through Miami female rapper Trina.
HoopsVibe has it from inside sources that Lil Wayne and Trina were caught making out at Monica’s album release party last night. It had already been well established that Lil Wayne broke up with ex-girlfriend DHEA and that we all knew Lil Wayne and Trina had previously dated. It was also well established that Trina was dating 6 Man of The Year winner James Harden of the Oklahoma Thunder, but who could have predicted Lil Wayne and Trina would rekindle their relationship at Club LIV in Miami last night and embarrass Harden like this in the middle of the playoffs. Our source inside the club says Trina also went home with Lil Wayne after the club got out. (Hoops Vibe)
