NBA Rumors: Miami Heat owner says team didn't ban Justin Bieber


Early Saturday morning, reports began to leak that Justin Bieber had been banned from attending the Miami Heat’s most recent home game against the Los Angeles Lakers.

The timing made sense considering Bieber was arrested early Thursday morning (and released a few hours later) and had secured himself tickets to that evenings game. But Miami Heat owner Micky Arison, who is quite active on social media responded to a fan, stating that Bieber being banned from Heat games is ‘ridiculous’.

@The23_@BeyondTheBuzzer absolutely ridiculous story Justin @justinbieber is always welcome at our @MiamiHEAT games. @scooterbraun

So who do we believe here? And is Arison simply playing a matter of semantics? He technically didn’t say he that Bieber wasn’t banned, outside of calling it silly. Could the ban have simply been for the night, not wanting Bieber at the game considering what had happened earlier in the day? Or was it just a false report initially?

Think the Heat really banned Bieber and are trying to damage control? Or it never really happened?
