NBA: Flo Rida's Manager Banned From Games 6 and 7 of NBA Finals

Jun 18 2013, 6:16pm CDT | by

Rapper Flo Rida's manager Freezy is banned from attending Games 6 and 7 of the NBA Finals for being too aggressive in Games 1 and 2.

Rapper Flo Rida's manager Freezy is banned from attending Games 6 and 7 of the NBA Finals for being too boisterous and aggressive in Games 1 and 2. 

This is the latest development as reported by the Miami Herald on June 18. Freezy, whose real name is Lee Prince, said he has been banned by the NBA from attending the next two games at American Airlines Arena after San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich called him a distraction.

"They were just telling me we had too much energy and the head coach complained about it. Them cats want an easy win. They ain't used to that Miami Heat support right next to them in their ears."

He also said Flo Rida, who left for Las Vegas after learning about his manager's sanctionwon't be at the games either. 

"We ride together."

NBA attorneys warned Freezy not to show up to the games. Otherwise, he'll be arrested. He also explained on radio how the league contacted him.

"They were sending me emails all week and kind threats but I was ignoring them. 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)?"

He has asked his own lawyer to re-appeal the decision, claiming he only did what regular NBA fans do: support their team

"This is an act of discrimination.

"I am not an outside celebrity. I am a local fan and I'm gonna get emotional watching my team play."

According to the New York Post, this isn't the first time Freezy has caused a stir at Heat games. In Game 7 against the Indiana Pacers in the Eastern Conference Finals, Flo Rida asked him to leave after he got in an altercation and apparently hit a fan towards the end of the game. 

Fox Sports' Sam Gardner notes Floa Rida's usual seat at Heat games is next to Phyllis Katz, the 70-year-old wife of team minority owner Raanan Katz.
