Always a class act, Lil Wayne recently kicked his special brand of vulgarity up a notch, announcing on-stage at a high-profile, star-studded concert that he nailed the wife of a professional basketball player (yes, he gave the name) and getting the crowd to join him in bashing that player’s team and the NBA overall.
Basically, poor ol’ Wayne felt disrespected by events that occurred at an NBA game last week (events resulting from his own infantile behavior) and chose to vent his rage publicly at an All Star Weekend concert that he was hosting. He began his tirade by announcing that the Miami Heat had him banned from future NBA events (not true) and then riling up the crowd.
“When I say ‘Fuck,’ you say ‘NBA.’ … When I say ‘Fuck,’ you say ‘Miami Heat.'”
And the crowd went right along with him. He continued on to bash three specific Miami Heat players: Lebron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh … and then, as his coup de grace, he announced that he had nailed Bosh’s wife.
“Fuck LeBron. Fuck She-Wade. Fuck Chris Bosh. Fuck all them niggas, man … and I fucked Chris Bosh wife.”

And that, my friends, is a fine example of the way true gentlemen comport themselves … with peerless chivalry, discretion, and utmost integrity.
To help understand Wayne’s fury, let’s rewind to an unpleasant occurrence at a basketball game he attended a few days prior to this concert. The game was played in Miami between the hometown Heat and the Los Angeles Lakers. Wayne, who’s a Lakers fan, claims that he was booted from the arena and summarily banned from all future NBA events. After the game, he tweeted:
“So I’m @ da Heat game right, rootin 4 da Lakers kuz dats my team & would u believe they got police 2 make me leave?! Wow! F#€k da Heat”
Not the case, according to a Heat spokesperson, who says that Wayne was neither kicked out, nor banned from future games. A fan who was sitting near Wayne says that Wayne was shit-talking with a Miami fan and made a threatening gun gesture, specifically meaning he did something to suggest that he was carrying a gun … which is odd because I guarantee there are metal detectors and other security that would preclude a handgun from getting in that arena.
Whatever the case may be, Wayne has been vocal about his dislike of Heat players in the past, criticizing them for not taking breaks from their actual fucking jobs to chat him up at the games. With his characteristic charm, Wayne phrased it this way in a Rolling Stone article:
“Them niggas never speak to a nigga. They don’t chunk me the deuce or nothing. Nigga spent all that money on them fucking tickets … Come holla at me. We sit right by them little bitch ass niggas. At least come ask me why I’m not rooting for you.”
As truly absurd as the whole thing sounds, Birdman, co-founder of Cash Money Records, who was performing with Wayne on the night in question, stood behind Wayne, offering a further threat:
“If Wayne say fuck you, I say MOTHER fuck you. Anybody got a problem with Weezy, they got a problem with me. They can die tonight.”
However this nonsense plays out … and it is complete and utter nonsense … it’s very far from acceptable for any person to treat another so irresponsibly. Marriage is real life. Basketball is a game. Rapping is entertainment. Lighten the fuck up.
