The Associated Press notes that Lil Wayne did not have a ticket and was unwilling to settle for anything but one of the best seats in the house: "Thunder spokesman Dan Mahoney says Lil Wayne's representatives did contact the team requesting tickets but insisted that he sit on the front row, and none of those seats was available. Oklahoma City sold out every home game during the regular season and playoffs this season. Mahoney says: ‘We'd love to have him at a game, but like anyone else, he needs a ticket.'"
Mack Maine, rapper and president of Young Money, told the story differently to MTV: "They said they’ll give him some tickets on the front row behind, but they’re not really tryin’ to have him sittin’ courtside. And then they also sent a message back sayin’ the OKC policy was no special parking and no escort, so he gotta walk in like everybody else. Why would you actually want to cause pandemonium? That’s gonna make it harder for your security.”
Mack continued, "We’re not no prima donnas, but that’s just common sense, for our safety and the safety of your building. We were basically just tryin’ to take our brother to the game."
