Thunder bandwagon: Lil Wayne buys courtside seat in Chesapeake Energy Arena
NBA FINALS — Lil Wayne caused a stir when he was denied a seat during the Western Conference Finals, but the rapper was in the house for Game 1 of the NBA Finals.
Game 1 of the NBA Finals between the Oklahoma City Thunder and Miami Heat was arguably the most-anticipated sporting event in Oklahoma history. To say the Thunder Bandwagon was in full force during OKC's 105-94 victory is an understatement.

LIL WAYNE BUYS COURTSIDE SEAT
Lil Wayne got to see a Thunder playoff game inside The Peake, after all.
The rapper was sitting courtside for Game 1 of the NBA Finals between OKC and Miami on Tuesday night — after buying his own tickets, a Thunder spokesman told Yahoo! Sports.
Lil Wayne created a stir on Twitter and beyond when he tried to sit courtside for Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals game between the Thunder and San Antonio Spurs. The problem? Front-row tickets were sold out.
“Was going to go to the Thunder game tonight but was denied by the team to be in their arena,” he tweeted that night. “Wow. Go Spurs.”
Lil Wayne and fellow rapper Mack Maine were posing for photos with NBA super fan Jimmy Goldstein in between the first and second quarters.
‘CALL HIM, KD' HITS YOUTUBE
The Woodward fans responsible for the YouTube sensation “Beard Like Harden” has created its latest video — “Call Him, KD.”
The video, which again was spearheaded by Chris Castor, parodies Carly Rae Jepsen's “Call Me Maybe.” It hit the Web Monday and already had more than 50,000 hits as of Tuesday night.
The chorus features the following lyrics: “Hey, just blew right past you/His skills are crazy/His number's 3-5/Just call him, KD.”
“Beard like Harden” quickly went viral after debuting last month, getting more than 230,000 hits.
