Lil Wayne is front and center for Warriors at Houston — but who is he rooting for?

That’s a difficult question to answer

WHO: Lil Wayne

VENUE: Game 2, Western Conference finals; Toyota Center

WHHW: Weezy might’ve missed his set at Rolling Loud in Miami, but he wasn’t missing out on Warriors vs. Rockets Part Two. It’s no surprise Tunechi is courtside — he’s one of the most die-hard sports fans in all of music. As for who he’s pulling for, that’s a difficult question to answer. We know he’s a Lakers fan. We also know he’s a die-hard Kobe Bryant fan, so maybe he’s just there because he’s a student of the game (with amazing seats). Whatever the case, Wayne’s long-awaited The Carter 5 could see liberation this year, as he just signed with Creative Artists Agency, and he and Birdman look to finally be on cordial terms once again.
