Jay-Z under investigation by the NBA

Rap superstar Jay-Z maybe be in hot water after an impromptu visit with the winners of the Kentucky Wildcats and North Carolina Tar Heels college basketball game. The NBA said that its plans to investigate the New Jersey Nets minority owner after his little visit to the locker room. The rap mogul was seen on video and in photos celebrating with the Kentucky team after their victory. The win advanced the Wildcats to the Final Four but the big uproar is that Jay-Z interacted with two possible high draft picks in Brandon Knight and Terrence Jones and the NBA doesn’t take that lightly.

This is mildly surprising as one would think the Roc Nation president and CEO would know owners can’t talk to potential players especially underclassmen. Just as recent as 2007, Boston Celtics GM Danny Ainge was fined $30,000 for sitting and conversing with Kevin Durant mother during a game. Being a rap superstar has it perks and I would guess it was hard for the person in charge of security to turn down a man that most of those kids look up to. The problem is the impression that it gives when a multi-millionaire owner is partying it up with potential clients.
