Lil Wayne says he feels 'unwanted' at Okla. arena




LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Lil Wayne says that after a recent NBA playoffs ticket snafu he felt unwelcome and "unwanted" at the Oklahoma City arena and isn't planning to return.

The rapper tells the Associated Press that two Thunder players -- Kevin Durant and James Harden -- had reached out to offer him tickets to Saturday's fourth game of the Western Conference Finals.

But he says that while "the players want me there, I don't want to feel -- I'm going to still feel unwanted."

A team spokesman has said the rapper -- who claimed he was denied entry Thursday -- was welcome at the arena with a ticket, but that Lil Wayne's representatives had insisted that he sit in the front row, and none of those seats were available.
