When two of my favorite things (Hip-Hop & Sports) come together and make news, you know I gotta tell ya about it! LOL– [photogallerylink id=19796]It’s no secret that [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Jay-Z[/lastfm] owns a minority stake of the New Jersey Nets. You can always catch him and his wifey [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Beyonce[/lastfm], courtside at their games! Find out what Hov did that got him in some trouble with the N.B.A….
Apparently, you’re not supposed to go to other teams locker-rooms. That even includes college teams as well! And that’s exactly what Jay-Z did! He went to go congratulate the Kentucky Wildcats last month. Remember they are the team that went to the Final 4 in college basketball, but didn’t make the big championship game!
He went to tell them good job and got busted!! They fined the NETS $50,000! I’m sure Jay-Z paid it and didn’t even blink, but we’ll see if he learned his lesson because you never know when the NBA is watching!
The NBA has a rule that they don’t want anyone around the college players who might have NBA eligibility incase they make it to the draft one day. Makes sense…..kinda. I think Jay-Z was just saying “Good Game” and not trying to find the next Paul Pierce or Monta Ellis (yes, I’m a Celtics & Warriors Fan–LOL).
Do you think the fine was too much? What about the NBA rule, does it make sense and Hov shoulda known better? Tell me what you think?
