There are a lot of people who waited a long time for the Phoenix Suns to make the NBA Finals, then there is Lil Wayne.

The multi-platinum rapper was one of the first fans on the floor to congratulate Suns point guard Chris Paul after securing the win.

Wayne is known as a sports fan who frequently appears on the sports program Undisputed with Skip Bayless and Shannon Sharpe.

The rapper seemed to have taken affinity to the team after appearing courtside at Phoenix Suns Arena for Game 5.

Apparently, twice is nice as the Suns were able to close out the Los Angeles Clippers 130-103 in Game 6 in Los Angeles, Wayne’s second appearance.

It is yet to be seen if Lil Wayne will make an appearance at the NBA Finals.
