Lil Wayne Apologizes to Lebron James, but not NBA or Miami Heat
Lil Wayne didn't mean what he said about Lebron James during All-Star weekend, but the rest of the Miami Heat and the NBA? You bet he did.
"I don't apologize for that night," he said during an interview with Miami's 99 Jamz (via Rap Radar). "I don't apologize for being who I am. That's who I am, and yes, I did say those things."
He didn't mean to insult Lebron, though.
"Only thing I do want to take back from saying that night, I said 'Fuck LeBron,' I didn't mean to say that because me and LeBron we are cool and I'm really cool with his mom and we have a real good relationship," he explained. "That's my homie but it just slipped out. I didn't mean to say that. Other than that though I don't take nothing back."
He also confirmed that despite what the NBA says, he was definitely prohibited from being involved with All-Star Weekend. He said the league kept him from participating in a Gerald Green's stunt dunk during the Slam Dunk Contest, performing with Alicia Keys during halftime of the All-Star Game and attending the game itself. The league told him that it was out of concern for the players.
Weezy said his issues with the Heat stem from a less-than-friendly exchange he had with Dwyane Wade at the Heat/Lakers game on Feb. 10.
"I was at the game, rooting for the Lakers, saying 'Chris Bosh you can't hit a shot; D-Wade stop crying,' I'm saying whatever I wanna say, I'm a fan of who I'm a fan of," he explained. "Then Dwyane Wade comes over and he looks at me. I said, 'Y'all don't fuck with me, so I don't fuck with ya'll. Yall don't fuck with me.' [Wade] looked me dead in my eye and his exact words were, 'We don't.' He didn't say, 'I don't,' he said, 'We don't.' So I said 'OK, well fuck you' then. He said 'well fuck you.'"
