Drake barred from Heat locker room

Rapper Drake tried to get into the Miami Heat locker room Thursday after Game 7 of the NBA Finals. He did not succeed.

There’s a sense of entitlement that comes with being a celebrity, and that’s not lost on multi-platinum rapper Drake, arguably one of the most famous musicians in the world.

So after the Miami Heat won their second consecutive NBA championship Thursday night with a Game 7 victory over the San Antonio Spurs, the thought that Drake wouldn’t be allowed to just mosey into the post-game locker room celebration never really crossed his mind.

Fortunately, there was a steadfast security guard standing in front of the Heat locker room doors to inform Drake of his rights — one of which was not to go into the locker room without a credential.

The guard blocked the star recording artist from entering, restoring our faith in humanity while allowing media members in to witness the madness.

Drake didn’t go all Reese Witherspoon on the guard and ask if he knew who he was, but you know he wanted to.

In any case, though, Drake still won the night — as you probably could have assumed he would. Hours after he was barred from the locker room, Drake was on stage with LeBron and Dwyane Wade, celebrating the win at Story nightclub on South Beach.
