Lil Wayne in the house in OKC for Game 1 of NBA Finals

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- After much ado, Lil Wayne is finally going to see an NBA playoff game in Oklahoma City.

Thunder spokesman Dan Mahoney says the rapper bought a pair of courtside seats and is expected to attend Game 1 of the NBA Finals between Oklahoma City and the Miami Heat.

Lil Wayne caused a stir during the Western Conference finals when he posted on Twitter that the Thunder wouldn't let him into their arena, with the team saying simply that he needed to buy tickets if he wanted to come.

Lil Wayne then said he felt "unwanted" in Oklahoma City after the episode, even though Kevin Durant and James Harden had offered him tickets.
