Oklahoma Thunder Say No To Lil Wayne
Lil Wayne wanted to go to the NBA playoff game Thursday night and the Oklahoma City Thunder said no.
"Was going to go to the Thunder game tonight but was denied by the team to be in their arena. Wow. Smh. Go Spurs," Wayne tweeted just hours before tip-off.
It was Young Money President Mack Maine who tried to score the tickets through a broker, but securing the seats proved to be difficult. "He finally just let me know, they not really tryin' to sell tickets to him," Mack Maine told MTV News minutes after the playoff game ended. "They said they'll give him some tickets on the front row behind, but they're not really tryin' to have him sittin' courtside."
Then things got even weirder Mack, told MTV. "Then they also sent a message back sayin' the OKC policy was no special parking and no escort, so he gotta walk in like everybody else," he explained. "Why would you actually want to cause pandemonium? That's gonna make it harder for your security."
