Duke basketball players are used to being hated by the rest of the country.
But freshman guard Rasheed Sulaimon must have been surprised when rapper Lil Wayne allegedly cussed him out during Tuesday night’s game against Kentucky in the Georgia Dome. The rapper and self-proclaimed North Carolina Tar Heels fan had courtside seats opposite the Duke bench and was allegedly giving the Blue Devils a piece of his mind during Duke’s 75-68 victory over UK. Never mind that Lil Wayne is from New Orleans and has no connection to the team from Chapel Hill.
Tweeted Sulaimon early Wednesday morning:
Still a @liltunechi fan but was shook when he cursed me out court side lol. Where the duke love at slime

We take it Duke players didn’t ask for autographs after the game.
