Lil Wayne Talks About Partying With The Mavs

The day after the Mavs won the 2011 NBA Championship, the world read about Mark Cuban and his players partying at Club Liv with Lil Wayne and friends. In an excerpt from XXL‘s newest cover story, Weezy talks about the experience: “Here at Miami’s Hit Factory recording studio, where the Young Money rapper is chilling with his crew, everybody cracks up as a camera-phone photo is passed around the room. The picture is of Lil Wayne, who bursts out laughing himself. Taken last night, Sunday, June 12, the picture shows the international rap superstar and Young Money Entertainment owner standing with one hand on his hip and the other around the NBA’s Larry O’Brien Championship Trophy—which had just been won by Dirk Nowitzki and the Dallas Mavericks, with whom he happened to be partying in celebration at Club Liv in Miami Beach. ‘We had fun,’ says Wayne of his night with Dirk and Jason Kidd and Jason Terry and team owner Mark Cuban, who brought the trophy to the club. ‘Y’all know I’m a Laker fan. They knocked my Lakers out pretty terribly. So, you know, I’m coming from the old school. I’m old-fashioned. Can’t beat ’em, join ’em. Before the postseason, people ask you, ‘Who you pick?’ I picked the Lakers. When your team loses, they say, ‘Who you pick?’ You pick the team that beat your team. That’s who I’d picked. I had picked Dallas in six. They did that. And like I said, they were in the club last night. We chilled. We had fun with Dirk. We did. We kicked it with Mark. The trophy came around a few times to our section. We took a few pictures with it, you know, all in fun. Everybody just had fun, enjoyed themselves.’”

    That doesn’t make sense! Give the players their due, but don’t say can’t beat them join them! that’s what Miami did. I don’t agree with Weezy’s logic.

    I don’t agree with your logic if your logic leads you to conclude that Weezy attempts to think logically.

    Wait thats old fasion? Can’t beat them, join them? What? Name one classic tale where the good guys got beat so they just joined the the winners. Thats some new school ish right there. Bron taught us how to do that. I guess he should have joined the Celtics if that was the case, but whatever.

  • Rog23

    Bron didn’t go by that logic. He never worried about getting by the heat. He didn’t join anyone. He created something great. If he didn’t join miami, the haters would be hatin for him bein selfish and wanting to be THE MAN.

  • http://slamonline.com LakeShow

    Nope they wouldn’t be Rog. Everyone loves a dude who stays put till the “JOB” is done. MJ, Kobe, Reggie tried, Malone and Stockton tried. They all have respect around the league for that. LeBron joined the best player besides Kobe on the planet. Thats joining them. Once again you cannot read dude.

    Lol kobe? The dude who demanded a trade because his teammates weren’t good enough?? The almost chicago bull kobe? Malone? The same malone who joined kobe shaq and payton in LA??? Imo hard work deserves respect. PERIOD

  • MUBWAR

    i don’t how can people still question Lebron. We all know he will have a few rings. Now the questions remains, at the rate he is going he’ll have around 30 000+ points 10 000+ reb 10 000+ assists 2500+ steals and over 1500+ blocks 15 years into the league. Appreciate greatness. the most complete player of all time.

  • http://slamonline.com LakeShow

    Ya… when Smush Parker is your starting PG and Luke Walton the starting SF and Brian “The Bruiser” Cook is your 2nd best post player behind Lamar Odom then yes you demand changes on your team or a trade. Very sensible thing to do when your Kobe in your prime. Malone… really dude you think he gave it a couple years in Utah with Stockton and then just moved on???! Dude worked his ass off for a decade and a half and then with his career coming to an end decided to hop on with a contender. Yeah LeBron is no different than Kobe or Malone, what really? Just think about it for a min. So now I don’t respect LeBrons game because I think he had enough skill to win it ALL with Cleveland. I think if you think LeBron could not have won on the Cavs that you doubt his talent far more than myself. Same with Payton. Gave it his all for the Sonics for over a decade. This sum Buuuulll shiiiii*

  • http://slamonline.com LakeShow

    Your full of rubbish Mubwar. Jordan is obviusly the most complete player ever. Think bro. Think!!! Post game, out side shot. Ability to win it all… LeBron is the most gifted athletic specimen in the league. That doesn’t make his bball skills the best ever.

  • http://Slamonline.com nbk

    Nobody is/was winning a title in Cleveland. Unless you can remain bad for a few years like OKC did. Cleveland immediately started adding vets around LeBron, they were never winning a title. And Kobe demanding a trade to Chicago, and then turning it down when Luol Deng became part of the deal is no different then choosing your teammates through free agency.

  • Rog23

    So its ok for kobe to demand a trade when he thinks his title chance is slim? But lebron ACTUALLY DID SOMETHING ABOUT IT and you bash him for it? If lebron could’ve traded varejao for gasol don’t you think he would’ve stayed in cleveland ‘ala kwame for gasol’? The cavs don’t have the ability to pull off blockbuster moves like the lakers.

  • Rog23

    Not to mention, the reason malone isn’t considered the all time best pf is because he is ringless. We measure our players greatness by team success, which isn’t fair. If malone would’ve left to the lakers in his prime and won 3 rings don’t you think we would have his legacy higher than right now? Don’t play dumb, you and I both know that no rings= a whole lot less respect. Not fair but that’s how the media and some fans see things. Look at dirk, 1 ring with a stacked team and he comands respect from those who doubted his game in the past. Although he is virtually the same player

  • ripslam

    WHY ARE YOU PEOPLE TALKING ABOUT LEBRON?

  • http://www.twitter.com/nflem41 Nicolas Fleming

    Dirk is virtually the same player? And he now has a stacked team? You have no credibility. Bye.

  • http://Slamonline.com nbk

    Fleming is right, Dirk is an efficient sooperbeast now. Plus Carslisle is an offensive genius who knows exactly how to use Dirk. Something Avery Johnson had not the greatest concept of. But Dirk is much improved, especially in 4th quarters.

  • http://slamonline.com LakeShow

    It’s all personal perspectives at this point. LeBron should have told the Cavs org. that he wanted a real allstar talent or he would be leaving when his free agency is up. But instead he gave Cleveland no idea what he was going to do, and then burned them by not telling them anything and then went and joined the best player on the planets team. For me as a moderate LeBron fan I was disapointed that he left the way he did, and for the team he did. I thought Chicago would have been a good choice, the Clippers 2nd. He could have been the No. 1 go to option on those teams (as he deserves), but instead we have to watch him and DWade take turns with the ball. I’m blabbing, but I get annoyed when I rehash it. LeBron could have won it ALL in Cleveland. Not with Mo Williams a dying Shaq, or Jamison, but they would have gotten some talent around him and LeBron IS good enough to drag a mediocre team to the Finals(as we have seen) and he could have won it all as the MAN. Instead of, winning it all as “one of them men.” Which we still have yet to see if that is going to happen.(It will)

  • http://Slamonline.com nbk

    No All Star is going to Clevelad. You can’t figure that out by the fact that they have never signed an All Star after an All Star season? Chris Bosh said he was not open to being sign and traded there. It’s just plainly obvious that unless Cleveland got a stud with a draft pick they were not getting an all star in his prime. Let alone an entire championship caliber roster. (And please don’t bring up their regular season success, because it’s irrelevant. Ask San Antonio)

  • KOBESbestFRIEND

    Mark Cuban makes Lil Wayne look like a welfare case…young money my as$

  • Dyce

    I think Lebron would have won a championship in Cleaveland. If he didn’t go to Miami this season and they added one more player. Which team would have beat the Cavs in 2011? The Celts no maybe the Bulls but it wasn’t like they weren’t in a position to compete with the best in the east.

  • http://slamonline.com LakeShow

    How bout their playoff success? They won many many series in the Playoffs. You think those teams just laid down for them? I guess I think LeBron is better than he is cause I don’t think Bron needs a great player at any more than 1 position. He needed one more really good guy to take some pressure off him. He could have gotten that. Through a trade or something. Someone would resign with Bron because most players want to win and you could do that with Bron. I just don’t go for that “market” thing. San Antonio isn’t the most bomb place to live. These guys can travel and vacation where ever they want they don’t need their team to live in a “raging” town. Chicago ain’t exactly “nice weather place to be.” I personally think LeBron was going to be the ‘Chosen One’ guy to bring a chip to Cleveland if he stayed.

  • KOBESbestFRIEND

    do you think Kobe would have demanded a trade if his team had the best record in the league 2 years running in a soft eastern conference with Shaq on his team…heck no!!!Lebron couldn’t win in Cleveland cuz he sucks not cuz of his teammates…Kobe was getting beat by a soft marshmellow Suns team with no Amare,while scoring 50 points,getting clotheslined by raja bell and no teammates coming 2 his aid and still losing thats y he wanted a trade

  • http://Slamonline.com nbk

    I believe it is 6 teams in NBA history have won a title in small markets. only 6, and the only teams in that situation to win a title in the last 30 years are San Antonio & Detroit. Both won through building there team through the draft. Except in 04 that detroit team was built through a terrible trade o the should be best player in the league that turned out totally lucky. Ben Wallace, Chauncee Billups were basically given up on as top tier NBA players. Other then that small markets get nothing. Infact there is not a small market team in the NBA right now with an elite player they didn’t draft or get during the draft.

  • http://twitter.com/BeezKneezy LA Huey

    LeBron is…er, this thread should be about Weezy? OK.

    This dude is such a fair-weather/front-running fan. I don’t subscribe to the idea that YOUR team should be the team based in your hometown but Lil Wayne switches jerseys all the time.

  • http://Slamonline.com nbk

    Playoff success? You mean beating Detroit? Cuz that’s te extent of their playoff success. That’s the only championship caliber team they beat, and it took an extroadinary series from LeBron that you just don’t replicate throughout an entire championship run. Hence them getting absolutely crushed by San Antonio.

  • seriousblack

    Lakeshow is smoking if he thinks Wade is or was the best player on the planet. And Lebron wasn’t wrong for not informing the Cavs of his plans. He was a free agent. He didn’t have an obligation to that team because he WAS NOT a Cavs employee. He opted out of his contract. Gilbert didn’t own Lebron. I love how people don’t have a problem with teams treating players like collecting cards, meaning they can trade them at the drop of a hat without notice, but have a problem with players doing the same. Say what you want about the Decision crap, but don’t attack his rights.

  • http://Nba.com GP23

    Ok, so back to Wayne. Yes he is Dope, but best rapper alive??? No. Eminem is the best rapper alive, and most would agree with me on this. Forget about what Lebron did, its in the past, and he is the best basketball player alive.

  • http://slamonline.com LakeShow

    I think LeBron is the type of talent to make that stat into 7 teams. One other great player with Bron and a bunch of guys that play defense and make open shots and you can win a championship. He wanted to win allot of chips and easiest way to do that was join a great players team. Not wrong. I just don’t prefer that, especially when I had faith LeBron would win it with the Cavs. You sound like Kobe’s best friend, KOBESbestFRIEND. Calm down.

  • http://blogspot.com LLC#12

    A few months ago lil wayne was being a little whining kid because lebron and wade ignored him during a game wasn’t he?..is him partying with the champs his way of getting revenge?! As an aside, lil wayne is horribly overrated, isn’t he!?

  • http://Slamonline.com nbk

    Cleveland couldn’t get another elite player, that’s why he left. How is that not obvious? They wasted 7 years f LeBron’s career adding past their prime veterans with no trade value. Amare would have been the best player Cleveland could RENT, because that’s all he would have been. And he’s so horrid defensively I don’t think him and LeBron were winning a title, but maybe. He still would have left for the money and market, just like he did to Phoenix after being 2 games from the finals. And 1 title in Cleveland IF (which i highly doubt) it happened would not have been enough for LeBron’s individual legacy. If Cleveland could get another elite player they would have. Seven years is more then enough time if it was possible. LeBron had to leAve while he still had time to improve. Or he would be Kevin Garnett-Karl Malone & John Stockton. Proofs in the pudding that stars that stay in small markets don’t win.

  • Dyce

    So what you are saying is if A top 10 player doesnt come to play with D. Rose he should leave to?

  • dookie

    Mavs only had one all-star when they won it all. Just saying.

  • http://Slamonline.com nbk

    Top 10? When did that come out of anyone? And Rose plays in Chicago, he will never have problems getting good teammates. He has Luol Deng, Carlos Boozer Joakim Noah all three f those guys would have been the second best player next to LeBron in Cleveland. I’m done it’s clear why LeBron left, the rest “he would have won a title if he stayed” is just optimistic speculation with no kind of evidence to back it up.

  • http://www.bulls.com Enigmatic

    O – full review please!

  • http://www.bulls.com Enigmatic

    I wouldn’t be mad at Rose if he left Chicago cause he couldn’t get any help. For real.
    But I don’t see that happening. He’s too loyal and management actually cares about building a winner.
    My two cents.

  • Dyce

    Lebron had Boozer, Verajo isn’t that much off of what Noah is….Cleveland have actually chances to get better players with Lebron just mad poor decisions on the stars they chose…Lebron had Mo Williams playing at close to an all-star level also….Lebron would be better off saying I just like the weather better out here.

  • http://slamonline.com LakeShow

    Whats Loyalty?

  • http://slamonline.com LakeShow

    Is Loyalty when you need 2 gats to go to sleep?

  • http://www.bulls.com Enigmatic

    LeBron had Boozer in LeBron’s rookie year and Boozer’s second. That’s it. Noah is MUCH better than Varasideshow.

  • http://Slamonline.com nbk

    Carlos Boozer is a whole different player then he was 7 years ago. That Verajao and Noah comment was a joke right? And Mo Williams got his all star nod from being on the best team in the conference, not from being one of the best Pg’s around.

  • Dyce

    Really Noah is much better? 1 more rebound 3 more points?

  • http://www.bulls.com Enigmatic

    Lakeshow talking bout loyalty?
    Loyalty?
    You talking bout loyalty!
    LOL Just clownin’ man, can’t help myself.

  • Rog23

    Maybe lebron was tired of CARRYING the franchise on his back for 7 years with little help? None of us are pro athletes so we don’t know how much that takes a toll on someone physically and mentally. Has there ever been anyone to carry a franchise with as little as lebron had for 7 strait seasons? Not to mention he carried them to the most success they had in their franchises history!

  • http://www.bulls.com Enigmatic

    Hell yeah he’s better.
    You’re gonna compare their stats from last year, when Varejao only played 33 games? You really think he woulda averaged 9.7 boards a game through 82 games?
    Then again maybe, cause his team was so wack, but Noah pulled down his boards balling (mostly) with Boozer, another solid rebounder, and with a jacked up thumb most of the season.
    And put the stats aside for a second, watch the games.
    Varejao is a good hustle player, good rebounder and a pest on defense, but Noah is a better rebounder, better defender, better passer, better shotblocker, and pretty sure his moms and sister are hotter than Varejao’s too.

  • Dyce

    I agree that he’s better, but not light years ahead of him….And Varejao is Brazillian I don’t know about that his moms and sister probably are bad! Just saying Lebron didn’t have as bad of a team as people say he did.

  • Rog23

    Noah also has the height advantage, and that dirty/trash talkin style that puts the cherry on top of a defensive minded player. Varejao is a nice 7th man. Noah is a legit starting center on a championship caliber team! I love varejaos game but he ain’t 7 foot and he ain’t gonna intimidate anyone like joakim does(whether nba players will ADMIT that noah is a threat to them is a different story)

  • Rog23

    Lebrons teams were never gonna make it the the 2nd round without him. Without him they weren’t even guaranteed a playoff spot in the east! If you couldn’t make the playoff in the east the past couple years, you sucked!

    Btw I’m reffering to the cavs without lebron, not the 2011 version of the cavs

  • http://Slamonline.com nbk

    Joakim Noah is clearly a better basketball player then Anderson Verajao

  • http://www.triplajunearthed.com/dacre Dacre

    @ nbk – I like reading your comments on every subject; something jumped out at me – you made a comment at the 6:14 mark: to quote it
    ——
    [And 1 title in Cleveland IF (which i highly doubt) it happened would not have been enough for LeBron’s individual legacy.]
    ——
    I’m just curious, do you feel that a single title has done enough for Jason Kidd and Dirk’s individual legacies… if so, why wouldn’t it be enough for LeBron. My personal position is that ONE SINGLE championship would be enough for any player to strive for, to position them as a ‘great’ of the game – and I clarify that by meaning that the player should have LEAD his team to the championship – the biggest up hill battle for LeBron now, that he is with two other perennial allstars is that its EXPECTED for them to win in BUCKETLOADS…. so in that case one ring wouldnt cut it.

  • http://www.bulls.com Enigmatic

    OK, I’ll give you the mom/sister thing, cause Brazilian women are mostly dimes.
    Nah, I didn’t mean to imply Noah was “light years” ahead of him, more like a notch or two above. If healthy, Noah’s a legit all-star. Can’t make the same claim for Varejao.

  • http://Slamonline.com nbk

    Dacre – well I meant that from my perspective, the expectation for LeBron from the beginning is as a player in the goat conversation. IMO you can’t be in that category unless you are Wilt or have won multiple titles. Dirk and Kidd are IMO overachieving by winning a title at this point in this career. Basically it’s about the expectations.

  • http://slamonline.com LakeShow

    lol. Yes, once again it was my choice for the Sonics to leave me. And for myself to just so happen to find work in my next favorite teams city. lol. whatever dood.

    Call me crazy, but if I was Lebron, I think I would’ve tried to grind it out in Cleveland, but that’s just me. I’m not a dude egotistical enough to leave in the fashion he did, but I would’ve had enough of an ego to tell Dan Gilbert and the rest of the management of the Cavs to their face, “You’re doing an incredibly sh*tty job. Wanna know why this organization doesn’t have a ring? I don’t really think you’ve been doing your job as best as you can. I’m here to win, and I need you to help me do that.”

    I never fully understood the logic of rooting 4 the team that took out ur team. Its non-sensical and a bit hipocritical n my opinion. Its like sayin, “I know u guys took out my team, but its aiight. I’ll roll w/ya’ll from here on out. We cool”. I mean, what the f√¢k is that sh!t. Its a stupid concept
