It wasn't that long ago when you could spot Lil Wayne sitting front row at AAA rooting on Dwyane Wade and the Miami Heat (one instance of which was immortalized in cake format), but apparently Wayne is a Heat fan no more. No, he's not pissed about "The Decision" like everyone else, he's just irked that he showed up for a game and neither Wade or LeBron James came up and talked to him in the middle of it.
>Wayne opens up to Rolling Stone for the first time about his sting in prison last year in a new interview, but also found time to explain his new-found Heat hate:
When Wayne sat court-side at a recent Miami Heat/New Orleans Hornets game he was upset that Lebron James and Dwayne Wade never came over to talk to him. "Them niggas never speak to a nigga," he says. "They don't chuck me the deuce or nothing. Nigga spent all that money on them fucking tickets ... Come holla at me. We sit right by them little bitch-ass niggas. At least come ask me why I'm not rooting for you."

Well, Wayne, these are professional athletes under immense pressure, especially in the Heat's case, so maybe you could excuse them for not doing a meet-and-greet in the middle of the actual game.
Wayne's sports fandom is a bizarre, and often unintelligible thing. It was only last year that he was rooting for the Indianapolis Colts in the Super Bowl against the Saints despite being a native son of New Orleans.
We have to wonder, though, if Wayne has dropped all his allegiances to Miami teams since he got out of prison. According to an earlier RS interview he had named his fantasy football team the South Beach Sloths.
