Lil Wayne said a manager had advised him not to return to the city's arena for sports events or concerts, but “I never say never.”

He said he felt welcome at other arenas including Miami, and likes being able to energize players — many of whom are fans of his music — on their home court.

“That's like me going on stage and … seeing LeBron (James) in the crowd with his hand up. I'm going to perform a little bit harder,” he said.

But in Oklahoma, he said that while “the players want me there, I don't want to feel — I'm going to still feel unwanted.”

A team spokesman has said Lil Wayne's representatives insisted that he sit in the front row, and none of those seats were available. Oklahoma City sold out every home game during the regular season and playoffs.
