Lil Wayne ‘unwanted’

Sun., June 3, 2012

Lil Wayne said that after a recent NBA playoffs ticket dispute he felt unwelcome and “unwanted” at the Oklahoma City arena and isn’t planning to return. The rapper (pictured right) said Thunder players Kevin Durant and James Harden offered him tickets to Saturday’s fourth game against San Antonio. “That’s not the point, though,” he said Friday. “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. Lil Wayne claimed in a tweet Thursday that he had been “denied by the team to be in their arena.” The Thunder said the seats he wanted were already taken. – AP
