Lil Wayne recently appeared on the "Wide World Of Sports" television show where he predicted that the L.A. Lakers will win the NBA championship. Weezy said "Just so no one gets it twisted: the Lakers are winning the NBA Finals. Now that KG is out, the C's [Celtics won yesterday – watch here] aren't gonna go anywhere, which is a shame. You always like to have the defending champs in there to fight like hell to hold on to their crown. Doc Rivers doesn't want to believe it. And as competitive as KG is, I can't imagine even being around him right now — how frustrated he must be because all he wants to do is get out on that court. He's probably breaking stuff in his house, he's so mad."
Weezy went on to talk about who the Lakers will face in the finals saying "so now we're looking at a Lakers versus Cavaliers final, and that's going to be amazing. Kobe won't get the best of LeBron, but the Lakers will get the best of the Cavs. I'll be rooting for the Lakers, and LeBron already knows that. So it's not like I'm gonna show up in a Kobe jersey and make 'Bron Bron cry. He knows I've been a Laker fan my whole life so it's all good. That don't mean he likes it, but he ain't gonna cry when he sees me at the games screaming for Pau Gasol and Trevor Ariza."
Weezy did say that he thinks Lebron will still come away with one award stating "But LeBron will be OK. He's gonna win the MVP this year. That will be his consolation prize. Phil Jackson and the Lakers will walk away with more rings, but LeBron will get his trophy." Not to mention Lebron has a movie coming out this year.
