Flea circus

First it was Lil Wayne, who took his “I didn’t get a courtside seat” rants to Twitter during last season’s NBA playoffs.

Now the anti-Thunder grousing comes from Michael Balzary, better known as Flea, the Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist and an adamant L.A. Lakers fan. Evidently, Flea was denied access to scope out the Thunder locker room last week when the band played at the Chesapeake Energy Arena.

Flea complained afterward on Twitter that he did not see the lair of Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook, even though he has been allowed into other NBA locker rooms, including that of the “hated Celtics.” To make matters worse, he concluded the tweet with the words “Noveau (sic) riche,” directed at the team.

Still, Flea wrote that the experience wasn’t all bad. A later tweet thanked Oklahoma City, and concluded by mentioning that it was “rockin” when the girls in the front row “showed their tittys (sic).”
