Ted Leonsis joined Scott Jackson and Brian Mitchell on ESPN 980’s “Inside the Locker Room” Monday afternoon and was asked about the the potential scheduling conflict between Game 6 (if necessary) on May 15 and the Lady Gaga concert scheduled at Verizon Center the same night.

“I’m wearing my meat suit,” Leonsis joked, referencing the outfit Lady Gaga wore to the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards. “I’m going to wear my meat suit in homage to Lady Gaga just as I did when I wore the Nene jersey. Free Lady Gaga.”

GAH. Nononononono. NO.

Then Leonsis got serious, and he doesn’t sound too concerned about Lady Gaga.

“I don’t see it as an issue,” Leonsis said. “I think playing basketball is what we’ve contracted to do and it’ll all work out. I’m sure they’ll announce something soon, but the NBA playoffs are very, very important to all of us.”
