The San Antonio Spurs are typically called boring and seem to lack the celebrity flavor of a Jay-Z courtside for the Nets or the celebrities that are always on-hand at a Knicks or Lakers game. However, Gregg Popovich has somehow inspired Lil Wayne's allegiance -- so much so that he tried to follow the team to Oklahoma City to root the Spurs on for game three last night. Unfortunately, the overly-tattooed rapper couldn't get into the game.
Was going to go to the Thunder game tonight but was denied by the team to be in their arena. Wow. Smh. Go Spurs!— Lil Wayne WEEZY F (@LilTunechi) May 31, 2012
In a text message to ESPN, the rapper wrote, "They denied me the tix. Didnt want me in their arena. They also said if I do come, I can only sit behind the bench, not on the floor & that I wouldn't be able to get any special escort nor entrance. They said its the 'Oklahoma way'."
The team responded with a statement that Wayne only wanted a front row seat and that they were all taken. Nothing like a little rap drama in two states that celebrate Wynonna Judd more than any rap artist.
