Flo Rida Rumors
Miami Heat parties are so ballin’… even their most hated enemies will bow down for a chance to hang with the champs — just ask #1 Knicks fan Spike Lee! LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh hosted a sick bash at Club Bamboo on South Beach Friday night — with a ton of celeb guests. Drake and Timbaland were there — as well as actual Heat fan Flo Rida.
According to Freezy, San Antonio Spurs Head coach Gregg Popovich asked that his crew not be allowed back because they were getting too rowdy in support of the Heat. “They were just telling me we had too much energy and the head coach complained about it,” Freezy claimed. “Them cats want an easy win. They ain’t used to that Miami Heat support right next to them in their ears.” Freezy was also asked to leave the arena by the Indiana Pacers during the Eastern Conference Finals, but he said the Pacers were more disrespectful about it than the Spurs. “The Spurs are just scared,” he explained. “They’re scared of the energy. The Pacers were disrespectful. The Spurs don’t want that building to erupt around them. What I do to cheer for my team is no different than what Spike Lee does in New York or Jack Nicholson does in LA.”
During an appearance on 104.3 The Ticket’s “Hochman and Zaslow Show” Tuesday morning, Freezy explained how the NBA contacted him and told him that he would be arrested if he tried to attend Game 6 on Tuesday night. “They were sending me emails all week and kind threats but I was ignoring them,” he said. “Then I got emails and phone calls from their lawyers telling me I’m not allowed in the building for the next two games. So I’m like, ‘What violation did I (commit)’”
You may remember courtside staple Freezy, manager of Miami rapper Flo Rida, from his Eastern Conference Finals ejection. Freezy got involved with the Indiana Pacers’ bench, and was quickly tossed. During an interview on 104.3 The Ticket today, Freezy claims the NBA contacted him after Spurs coach Gregg Popovich complained, and promised Freezy that if he tried to attend Game 6 or 7 of the NBA Finals, he’d be arrested.
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.
As the players waited for the referees to sort out the problem, Pendergraph started jawing with Flo Rida’s manager, according to Craig Sager. The manager was ejected from the arena, and Flo Rida ensured he left in a timely fashion, Sager said.
Meanwhile, Minaj will perform a medley of her singles, including her brand new cut “Starships” and her smash hit “Super Bass,” during the All-Star Game introductions. Blige has been tapped to perform the U.S. national anthem prior to the game, with pop group Neverest delivering the Canadian anthem. On Saturday, Feb. 25, Will.i.am and Flo Rida will perform during the NBA All-Star Saturday Night events, which include the NBA Slam Dunk Contest and Three-Point Contest. The Black Eyed Pea will play his solo single “T.H.E. (The Hardest Ever),” while Flo Rida will perform his pop hit “Good Feeling.”
