Things really got interesting when Pendergraph returned to the Pacers bench. The reserve bench player got into a jawing match with rapper Flo Rida’s manager who had an expensive courtside seat.
After threatening to see Pendergraph after the game, Flo Rida’s manager was politely escorted from the arena by Miami police officers.
The trash talking incident was explained in further detail by TNT’s spiffy sideline reporter Craig Sager.
“It actually was Flo Rida’s manager who was ejected,” Sager said. “He and Pendergraph had been going back and forth. He got to be such a distraction that the officials came over and tried to eject him. He wanted to stay put. However, Flo Rida said, ‘You’re my manager, but you’ve got to get out of here now.’”
Sager was only half right. Flo Rida’s obscene gold and diamond encrusted Jesus piece was more of a distraction than his manager was!
Game 1 of the NBA Finals is Thursday at American Airlines Arena in Miami.
