ESPN is reporting that rapper Lil Wayne was denied tickets to last nights Game 3 matchup between the Oklahoma City Thunder and the San Antonio Spurs.
Evidently when Wayne asked for tickets from the Thunder, the team informed him that he needed to purchase a ticket just like everyone else.
Apparently offend by the gesture, the rapper immediately took to Twitter, posting “Was going to go to the Thunder game tonight but was denied by the team to be in their arena. Wow. Smh. Go Spurs!”.
Claiming that he was denied by the team to be in their arena was an extreme exaggeration as Lil Wayne later exchanged texts with an ESPN reporter, stating that “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’.”
Dan Mahoney, spokesman for the Oklahoma City Thunder did say that Wayne’s representatives called and requested tickets to the game, but were only willing to accept tickets on the front row. The Thunder informed the stars representatives that none of the floor seats were available and this it would not be possible.
Mahoney went on to say that “We’d love to have him at a game, but like anyone else, he needs a ticket.”
Do you feel that Lil Wayne deserved free floor tickets to the Thunder vs. Spurs game, or do you feel that he should have to buy them like everyone else?
