Everyone loves a winner…and the sweet smell of success intoxicated some of the Miami Heat’s celebrity fans on Sunday night. Lil Wayne and Birdman are seasons ticket holders who cheer on the Heat from their prime courtside seats. Birdman even bet $2million dollars (allegedly) on the Heat to win this year’s NBA Championship. But it was the Dallas Mavericks who won 105-95 in Miami, sending Lebron off to the lockers to sulk, Chris Bosh to the tunnel to sob, and Dwayne Wade to congratulate the winners with class.
After the game, Dallas’ MVP Dirk Nowitski, owner Mark Cuban, and friends went to Miami’s infamous megaclub, Liv at the Fountainbleu Hotel, to celebrate with the same partyers who wink at, high-five with, and glom booze off of local Heat players any other day. Is it scandalous to see Lil Wayne hugging Dallas’ trophy or grinning with Dirk? Do you think he owes it to his current hometown to be less excited?
Let’s revisit that Rolling Stone feature, where Weezy said:
“[Lebron and Dwayne] never speak to a n—a…They don’t chuck me the deuce or nothing. N—a spent all that money on them fucking tickets … Come holla at me. We sit right by them little bitch-ass n—-s. At least come ask me why I’m not rooting for you.”
In the end, Wayne is just a sports fan. And Club Liv is a business (which some Miami natives say is just an overpriced tourist trap).
Check out more photos of Lil Wayne and Dirk Nowitski, Chris Bosh’s Ugly Cry, and more of reaction to the NBA Championship…

-Twitter’s nonstop peanut gallery had a schadenfreude field day with the Heat’s loss, especially after seeing this clip of Chris Bosh breaking down on the way to the locker room.
-Lebron James’ former hometown Cleveland made the Mav’s honorary citizens and the bitterest NBA owner in America, Dan Gilbert didn’t miss the opportunity to snipe at his Cleveland Cavaliers’s lost star, Lebron James: “Congrats to Mark C.& entire Mavs org. Mavs NEVER stopped & now entire franchise gets rings. Old Lesson for all: There are NO SHORTCUTS. NONE.”
-Actress Gabrielle Union sent a sweet tweet of support to her longtime boyfriend, Dwayne Wade….
-And lastly, Dallas Maverick DeShawn Stevenson went all the way there, with a post-victory t-shirt taunting Lebron, and spoofing the greatest NBA diss of all time, Shaquille O’Neal’s “Kobe, Tell Me How My Ass Taste” freestyle…
