Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich is all business right now. If San Antonio wins the NBA Finals in Miami, then he might crack a smile. But until then, he's not going to let his guard down.
As a result of that, Pop reportedly just had Flo Rida's manager Lee "Freezy" Prince (seen to the left of Flo Rida in the photo above) banned from the Heat's AmericanAirlines Arena. During a radio interview on 104.3 The Ticket in Miami this morning, Freezy—who got ejected from Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals for yelling at Pacers players—claimed that Pop complained about there being "too much energy" near the Spurs bench in Games 1 and 2 of the Finals and asked for Freezy to be freezed out of Games 6 and 7. Freezy said that he received several emails from the NBA this week and that they called him yesterday to tell him that he will be arrested if he is spotted inside of the arena. He also revealed that he will comply with their request and added that Flo Rida will also skip the game to show solidarity with his manager. But Freezy asked for those fans who take their seats to represent for him and Flo.
"The Spurs are just scared," he said. "They don't want that feeling to erupt around them…Whoever sits in those seats tonight, they better represent! Man, please support that team. The Spurs are done tonight. Even they know that. They done."
Wow. As if Game 6 of the NBA Finals wasn't going to be exciting enough, now we've got an awesome Gregg Popovich vs. Flo Rida's manager storyline to follow, too?!?!? WE CAN'T WAIT!
