During Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals — which was
what, six weeks ago now? — rapper Flo Rida’s manager
made a scene from his courtside seat and got himself ejected from
Apparently, San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich hasn’t
forgotten that skirmish — or maybe he’s just being
Gregg Popovich — and has taken the steps to make sure it
doesn’t happen again when his team returns to Miami looking
to clinch an NBA championship.
According to Freezy, who would never exaggerate such a thing, he
was told he wasn’t allowed in the arena, and was informed
that he would be arrested if he showed up to Game 6
or Game 7. So he won’t be there Tuesday night when the teams
tip off for Game 6, and neither will Flo Rida.
It should be noted, at this point, that Flo Rida’s usual seat is
next to Phyllis Katz, the 70-year-old wife of
Heat minority owner Raanan Katz. And she doesn’t exactly look
happy that he’s there:
It wouldn’t be especially shocking if that had something to do
with the phone call either. But it’s more fun to pin it on
Pop, so even if it was Heat ownership that put the kibosh on
Freezy’s Tuesday and Thursday plans, we’ll stick with
Freezy’s account of events.
No word on whether Flo Rida’s Jesus chain will be showing
up without him.
