It appears that Lil Wayne may have exaggerated reports that he has been barred from attending live NBA events. A spokesperson from the NBA says that Lil Wayne’s claim that he is banned from league events is false.
In a recent report from TMZ, Mark Broussard, the Senior Director of Basketball Communications for the NBA, said that there is “no truth at all” to the New Orleans rapper’s claims that he has been banned from attending any further NBA games. Broussard even went on to say that the rapper voluntarily left the Miami Heat game from which he was allegedly ejected.
Last week, Lil Wayne made headlines when he claimed that the Miami Heat basketball organization forcibly ejected him from a game for rooting for the Los Angeles Lakers. Wayne took his feud further at a concert this past weekend in Houston, claiming that he had an affair with the wife of Heat power-forward/center Chris Bosh.
This isn’t the first time Lil Wayne has sparked a beef with the National Basketball Association. Last year, he said he was barred entry to an Oklahoma City Thunder play-off game, a claim the team organization later denied.
