Lil Wayne thinks the Thunder denying him tickets has to do with racism

In the latest with “Weezygate,” the unofficial title I just gave the pointless debacle involving Lil Wayne and the Thunder, the rapper is saying his denial of seats by the team before Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals has to do with race. Even though Kevin Durant and James Harden have already offered up tickets to him, Lil Wayne thinks that wouldn’t fix the problem.

“That’s not the point, though,” he told The AP on Friday. ”It’s the players stepping up but of course the players aren’t white. I don’t want to be sitting there on behalf of you and I’m sitting next to a (person) that’s like ‘I don’t want this (guy) sitting next to me.’ (Forget) you. … I’m in Forbes,” he added, laughing.

Whoa, whoa, Lil Wayne. Let’s pump the brakes for second here. The team said it simply did not have any seats available at courtside, where you purportedly wanted to sit. Sounds like reasonable enough logic to me. The Thunder are a hot ticket in Oklahoma. Seats are hard to come by for a lot of people.

And before you accuse the people of Oklahoma City of being racist, think of how this makes you look: A filthy rich celebrity — remember: he’s in Forbes! — throwing a tantrum and taking it to a silly racial level all just because he wasn’t given something really expensive for free. You’re in Forbes, so I’m sure you can afford to buy the seats if you really wanted them.

And, oh, by the way, since Lil Wayne tweeted “Go Spurs!” OKC is 2-0. Maybe the Thunder need Lil Wayne to hate them.

    Nice take.  The only racist involved seems to be Lil Wayne.

    He sounds more like Lil Whine to me!  Tickets are at a premium here in OKC.  He can come and watch it in the bars and restaurants like the rest of us, or pony up the bucks to sit in the peanut gallary with the rest of the fans. They do have sky boxes with fancy perks, if he wants to spend all his Forbes $.  It was rude of him to be so dismissive of the players who were offering him their own tickets.  The nice thing about the Thunder management is they plan benefits for the people of the city who brought the Thunder here with our own sales tax dollars, not left coast celebrities who think they can get stuff for free just because they are famous in their own minds!  Grow up, Lil Whine!

    These celebs expect to sit courtside at important playoff games and not pay top dollar for the seats? Sheesh – like OKC needs to be impressed by Lil’ Wayne’s presence at one of their most important playoff games to date. If there is some racism in this story it sounds like it might be coming from the celeb Wayne and not OKC Thunder front office or their regular paying fans.

    Too bad the N word would be censored if I used it here…piddly Wayne’s picture is above the word in the dictionary.

    Only a black athlete could put Wayne in his place…a white one would be accused of you-know-what. DON’T BUY HIS CDs!!!
