Flo Rida, the rapper who has courtside seats at American Airlines Arena right next to the visiting team’s bench, has been told by the NBA that his manager is not welcome at Games 6 and 7 of the NBA Finals after Spurs coach Gregg Popovich complained about “too much fan energy” near the bench.
Flo Rida’s manager, Freezy, made this claim on the Hochman and Zaslow Show (104.3 the Ticket) this morning. Freezy – who sits next to Flo Rida in the expensive seats – told the radio show Popovich complained to the league about his excessive cheering, and added the NBA “will have him arrested” if he comes to the Arena. In a move of solidarity, Flo Rida will not attend the game, either, Freezy says.
If you watched Game 7 of the Heat/Pacers series, you may recall Freezy being booted from the arena after a skirmish with the Pacers. And Flo Rida is so popular – for my money, his music is better than Pitbull‘s – the New York Times wrote about how he sits next to the 70-year old wife of the Heat’s owner.
Are LeBron and Wade and the Heat really going to stand for this? Do something, Pat Riley.
