Heat say Lil Wayne not booted from arena

Lil Wayne claims the Heat gave him the boot on Sunday, but the team says otherwise.

MIAMI -- Lil Wayne claimed he got the heave-ho. The Miami Heat say that's not so.


The rap star wrote on Twitter he had been kicked out of Sunday's game at AmericanAirlines Arena between the Heat and the Los Angeles Lakers for rooting for the Lakers. However, the Heat said Lil Wayne, who was not in his seat for the second half, was not ejected and chose to leave on his own.

 

"So I'm @ da Heat game right, rootin 4 da Lakers kuz dats my team & would u believe they got police 2 make me leave?! Wow!" Lil Wayne tweeted.

 

Heat forward LeBron James, who scored a game-high 32 points in his team’s 107-97 win, was asked after the game about Lil Wayne.

 

"I wasn’t over there…. I heard he said he was kicked out," James said. "I heard from our people, who said he was not kicked out."
