There have been a lot of famous faces present at the NBA Finals. The Miami Heat, who hosted Games 3 and 4 of the series, have many famous fans. These fans include Gabrielle Union, John Legend, Serena Williams, Rick Ross, Kevin Hart, and Flo Rida to name a few. The Denver Nuggets are appearing in their first-ever NBA Finals. Meanwhile, the Miami Heat return after reaching the Finals in 2020. However, the Het are looking for their first NBA title since 2013.
While Lil Wayne is known as a diehard Lakers fan, few people can stay away from the siren song of the NBA Finals. It’s unclear who, if anyone, he is rooting for in the series but he has spotted courtside at Game 4 in Miami. After all, the Nuggets swept his beloved Purple and Gold in the Conference Finals. Furthermore, he was also spotted at Game Two of the Finals in Denver. Moreover, Wayne linked up with a couple of famous faces while he was at the game.
Wayne Meets Jokić And Gretzky
“Joker ain’t no joke!” someone yells as Lil Wayne rolls up to Jokić. Wayne can be heard saying “you feel me?” before their conversation is lost in the noise of the crowd. Jokić had 23 points and 12 rebounds in Denver’s 108-95 win to take a 3-1 lead as the series heads back to Denver for what could be the series-deciding Game 5. Jokić has been absolutely dominant throughout the playoffs and is the current favorite to win Finals MVP. However, he wasn’t the only famous face that Wayne encountered.
Wayne also stopped for a picture with NHL Hall of Famer Wayne Gretzky. Gretzky, who remains the NHL’s all-time leader in points, goals, and many other categories, shared the image to Instagram. “2 Wayne’s” read the caption as Gretzky towers over Wayne. It remains to be seen if Wayne will be following the series back to Denver. As mentioned, he was there for Game 2. Follow all the latest sports and celebrity news here at HotNewHipHop.
