Memo to Lil Wayne: You need "tickets" to get into an "event."
If the tickets are sold out, then you usually can't go. Sometimes there are exceptions, but usually not for a game that has already been sold out for weeks, and generally not for seats better than 99.9 percent of the people who bought them already.
Lil Wayne learned this the hard way last night.
Weezy felt like going to Thursday's NBA playoff tilt between the Oklahoma City Thunder and the visiting San Antonio Spurs. The Thunder, with no seats to spare (least of all any courtside seats, which he insisted on sitting in), politely declined.
Thunder spokesman Dan Mahoney says Lil Wayne's reps did contact the team requesting tickets, but insisted he sit on the front row, and no seats were available.
Oklahoma City sold out every game during the regular season and playoffs this year. Mahoney says: "We'd love to have him, but like anyone else, he needs a ticket."
Makes sense to us. But apparently not LW, who Tweeted this:
That's right, denied by the team, as if they were making some kind of statement. What a douche. Also, no way he was rooting for the Spurs last night. None.
