Yahoo – We wouldn’t purport to know much about the musical stylings of Lil Wayne, though we did see him do some rather distasteful things to a guitar once, but we do know that you usually need “tickets” to get into an “event.” And if the tickets to the event are sold out, then you can’t usually attend the event. And if you’re going to make a request for a possible exception to that rule — even if you’re attempting to get into a game that has already been sold out for weeks — don’t do it with the caveat that you will be requesting front row seats only, all other ducats be damned. Like rapper Lil Wayne did, for Thursday’s Game 3 between the Oklahoma City Thunder and San Antonio Spurs. The Thunder, with no seats to spare (least of all no front row seats to spare), politely declined. From the Associated Press: “Thunder spokesman Dan Mahoney says Lil Wayne’s representatives did contact the team requesting tickets but insisted that he sit on the front row, and none of those seats was available. Oklahoma City sold out every home game during the regular season and playoffs this season. Mahoney says: ‘We’d love to have him at a game, but like anyone else, he needs a ticket.”’
Somebody’s got a lot of balls for being down 2-0 huh? As if getting shit stomped in San Antonio by like 100 points wasn’t enough. Now you’re going to turn down Weezy at the door and not let him into the arena? Have fun dealing with that PR disaster plus getting murdered. Probably be eviscerated in a rap beef track too which is just straight up humiliating for your street cred in Oklahoma. I mean what is Wayne supposed to do here exactly? ”Buy a ticket” like a poor person? Fuck that noise. Dude has gone platinum a billion times. When you show up to game 3 of the conference semifinals 2 minutes before tip and demand a front row seat I think you’ve earned it. You put him right there at the halfcourt line and keep the unlimited purple drank and pills flowing. Don’t make him fuck shit up at the box office and add another tear drop to his face if you know what I mean.
