Lil Wayne was in the crowd for Sunday’s Miami Heat/Los Angeles Lakers game…emphasis on the WAS. The popular hip-hop artist claims he was kicked out of the arena during the game for rooting for the wrong team.
Wayne — a basketball fanatic — tweeted yesterday that he got tossed from AmericanAirlines Arena in Miami because he was rooting for the Lakers.
However… a rep for the Miami Heat tells TMZ, “In response to your inquiry, please note that Lil Wayne was not ejected from the building. He chose to leave.”
Wayne is no stranger to beefing with NBA franchises — during last season’s playoffs he publicly bitched about not being able to get into an Oklahoma City Thunder game … which according to the team was because he didn’t have a ticket!
So I’m @ da Heat game right, rootin 4 da Lakers kuz dats my team & would u believe they got police 2 make me leave?! Wow! F#€k da Heat
