Flo Rida’s Manager Says Gregg Popovich Had Him Banned from Game 6

by June 18, 2013

Freezy, the amazingly named manager of the rapper Flo Rida, says he won’t be in attendance for Game 6 and perhaps Game 7 of the NBA Finals in Miami. The reason? Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich got him banned from the arena due to his courtside antics (you may recall that he was booted out of Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals). Why, of course. Per 104.3 The Ticket (via Larry Brown Sports): “Freezy explained how the NBA contacted him and told him that he would be arrested if he tried to attend Game 6 on Tuesday night. ‘They were sending me emails all week and kind threats but I was ignoring them,’ he said. ‘Then I got emails and phone calls from their lawyers telling me I’m not allowed in the building for the next two games. So I’m like, ‘What violation did I (commit)’. According to Freezy, San Antonio Spurs Head coach Gregg Popovich asked that his crew not be allowed back because they were getting too rowdy in support of the Heat. ‘They were just telling me we had too much energy and the head coach complained about it,’ Freezy claimed. ‘Them cats want an easy win. They ain’t used to that Miami Heat support right next to them in their ears.’ Freezy was also asked to leave the arena by the Indiana Pacers during the Eastern Conference Finals, but he said the Pacers were more disrespectful about it than the Spurs. ‘The Spurs are just scared,’ he explained. ‘They’re scared of the energy. The Pacers were disrespectful. The Spurs don’t want that building to erupt around them. What I do to cheer for my team is no different than what Spike Lee does in New York or Jack Nicholson does in LA.'”
