In a Rolling Stone cover story, Lil Wayne discusses the hurt of not being shown love by LeBron or Wade before games. "Them niggas never speak to a nigga. They don't chuck me the deuce or nothing! Nigga spent all that money on them fucking tickets... Come holla at me!
"They think I'm gonna kill 'em or something? Them niggas is LeBron and D-Wade! They don't be intimidated of anything.
"I asked my ho why they don't speak to me, and she said, 'Cause you always rooting against them.' But everybody they've played, I'm cool with a nigga on the other team! We sit right there by them little bitch-ass niggas. At least come ask me why I'm not rooting for you."
