Got treated like sh*t at the Laker game just now but I figured they’d do me that sooner or later either bc of what i said abt AD or simply bc they don’t fwm which I been got that vibe from em as well so all good I get it. F*ck em. It isn’t what it isn’t. I’m used to it.”

Wayne is not only known for his lyrical prowess but he is also known for not shying away from making bold statements. Especially when it comes to basketball. Being a loyal Lakers fan, the superstar went a little overboard with his comments on Anthony Davis last season.

Ahead of the 2023 postseason, AD had a tough time recovering from a foot injury. He missed the majority of the games in that season. And it looked like the Lakers were nowhere closer to claim a spot in the postseason. At that time, Lil Wayne dropped a harsh statement on Davis in an Undisputed episode. He said, “If the Lakers want to be a championship team in the future as well, you gotta get rid of AD,” 

However, the rapper’s words didn’t age well, as AD played a crucial role in the Lakers’ playoff run till the Conference Finals, averaging 22 points with 14 rebounds.
