The NBA finals is known for bringing out some of the biggest names in the industry who occupy the first few rows to get a firsthand look, and get noticed, at the biggest games in the NBA Schedule.
The celebrity sighting often becomes the runner up for the talk of the games with the play on the court taking first.
Freezy’s ejection from the game is not the first instance where a person or even a celebrity has gotten caught up in the Heat of the game. Initially there was no word on whether or not he was banned from the Heat games altogether.
But now it seems that he is not allowed to attend any games including the highly anticipated game 7 of the NBA Finals at American Airlines Arena. Word is San Antonio head coach Gregg Popovich requested it.
From Larry Brown Sports:
During an appearance on 104.3 The Ticket’s “Hochman and Zaslow Show” Tuesday morning, 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.”
Freezy also put some extended thoughts on the matter on social media. The Instagram photo with his comments contains some NSFW language, so here’s a clean version:
