Annoying Soccer Horns -- Banned from NBA Finals

6/17/2010 6:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Horny NBA fans are about to get a rude awakening -- those obnoxious World Cup horns are officially vuvuzela non grata at the big Game 7 tonight in Los Angeles.

TMZ spoke with a rep for the STAPLES Center in L.A. -- where the deciding game between L.A. Lakers and the Boston Celtics is scheduled to go down -- and we're told the arena bans ALL noisemakers, "so if you bring a vuvuzela you would not be able to bring it in with you."

Ironically, the ban doesn't seem to include thundersticks -- every foul shot shooter's nightmare -- which arena ushers hand out at halftime.

This is all bad news for Boston radio stations -- who have been encouraging Boston fans to bring down the mighty Kobe by tooting their own horns.

Funny but they won't ban them from the world cup because they are culturally important to Africans. They don't want to westernize the South Africans... who cares every culture is going to leave the wc games with a headache. I stopped watching because I can't take the constant buzzing.

Thank f***ing god. I don't mind horns or noise. But these things sound like flies buzzing around, and it's obnoxious to watch any game because of them.
