Jay-Z's Life+Style blog and his $50,000 visit to the Kentucky locker room
Last night I was catching up with a friend and was pointed towards Jay-Z's new blog, Life+Style. The link to the blog is: http://www.lifeandstyle.com/ and it's hot. Then again, I pretty much like everything Jay-Z does. I'm a huge fan.
As I was clicking away on his blog, I was impressed by the design and content on the site. I was also reminded of Jay-Z's $50,000 fine from the NBA for being in the University of Kentucky locker room during this year's Final Four.

Jay-Z has been to numerous basketball games and events. Although I've never seen him at any collegiate events, I'd be willing to bet that the Final Four wasn't his first rodeo. Of course Jay-Z knew he shouldn't be in the Kentucky Wildcats' locker room, but we all know that $50,000 is NOTHING for the New Jersey Nets' Russian billionaire owner, Mikhail Prokhorov.
I guess the NBA had to do something, but this fine just made me smile. I'm a betting woman. What do you think? Do you think Brandon Knight ends up in New Jersey? If I was Prokhorov, I'd ask Jay-Z do all my recruiting. It's GENIUS.
In reality, I guess only the ping pong balls know where the Nets will pick in the NBA draft but it never hurts to have Jay-Z affiliated (i.e. minority owner) with an organization when it comes to recognizing and signing talent.
