The NJ Nets’ minority owner (1.4%) is music mogul Jay-Z.  He is worth over $300 million, and has a $4.5M annual stake in the team.  

JayZ and NBA Commissioner David Stern

In 2009-2010, the Nets started the season 0-18

In April 2011, the National Basketball Association (NBA) fines Jay-Z $50k for his visit to the Kentucky locker room during the Final Four

Jay-Z responds on Track 3 (Ni**as in Paris) of his latest album Watch The Throne

So I ball so hard muhf***as wanna fine me / But first ni**as gotta find me / What’s 50 grand to a muhf***a like me / Can you please remind me? / This sh*t crazy / Ya’ll don’t know that don’t sh*t phase me / The Nets could go 0-82 and I look at you like this sh*t gravy / This sh*t weird / We ain’t even spose to be here / Since we here / It’s only right that we be fair / Psycho, I’m liable to be go Michael, / Take your pick / Jackson, Tyson, Jordan, Game 6
