Lil Wayne has had his fair share of troublesome times at NBA games in the past year, and now he says he was thrown out of the Sunday afternoon matchup between the Los Angeles Lakers and Miami Heat at the AmericanAirlines Arena.
At some point in the Lakers' 107-97 loss to the Heat Sunday, there was a bit of a commotion, as Lil Wayne was apparently upset over something:
Lil Wayne is going crazy over something. As always, none of us are sure what.— Tim Reynolds (@ByTimReynolds) February 10, 2013
He was subsequently thrown out of the arena:
Lil Wayne is going to be the first person to get thrown out of every NBA arena solely for being annoying

The Miami Heat released a statement saying that Lil Wayne Actually chose to leave the arena on his own (via Tim Reynolds of the Associated Press):
So much for being "kicked out," huh?

Lil Wayne claims he got kicked out of the Lakers-Heat game in Miami because he was rooting for the Lakers. twitter.com/BleacherReport…— Bleacher Report (@BleacherReport) February 10, 2013
While Weezy's version of the story seems incredibly convenient and unlikely, I'm not so sure about the other version that's floating around either.
Apparently, some are now saying that he was involved in a bit of an altercation with another fan, at which point he made a gun gesture (via OCNN's Patrick Sicher) and was confronted by security guards:
If Lil Wayne really got kicked out of the Heat game because he made a gun gesture at someone, then David Stern is probably throwing his desk— Bruce Arthur (@bruce_arthur) February 10, 2013
We'll no doubt learn what went on with Lil Wayne over the next few days, but for the time being, maybe Weezy should just stay away from basketball games. Bad things seem to follow him around NBA arenas.
