The San Antonio Spurs are one win away from winning the 2013 NBA Finals over the Miami Heat after coming up with the big 114-104 win in Game 5 on Sunday to take a 3-2 series lead. Obviously, even if the Spurs are holding on to a 3-2 lead and only need to win one of the next two games (if necessary) to clinch their fifth title, it certainly won’t be easy as American Airlines Arena will be quite the hostile environment as fans hope their beloved Heat won’t lose in the NBA Finals for the second time in three seasons.
On the bright side, at least there are two fans the Spurs won’t have to worry about being on the sidelines–Flo Rida and his manager Freezy.
Over the last couple of weeks, we’ve seen just how big of Heat fans Flo Rida and his manager are, but it looks like the two have seen their last playoff game this postseason as Freezy has been banned for Game 6 and 7–being told by the NBA that he will be arrested if he shows up to American Airlines Arena. From what Freezy claims, it was Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich who is responsible for getting him banned by the league–which makes this situation even more crazy.
Everybody remembers what happened with Freezy during the Eastern Conference Finals against the Indiana Pacers as he was ejected from Game 7 for yelling at players–so it wouldn’t be a surprise if something did happen again this series that led Popovich to pursue these actions. Either way, Freezy has to be frustrated with the fact that Tuesday night is the biggest game of the season for the Heat as they’re on the verge of elimination and he’s not even allowed to be in attendance thanks to the league banning him from the arena.
