NBA Will Investigate Jay-Z's Postgame Celebration With Kentucky

Really? It was a celebration party? come on...

How can it violate anything? it cant be recruitment because no one knows what # the nets are selecting at... and its not recruitment because there the ones selecting no?

The NBA will investigate Jay-Zís visit with the Kentucky basketball team after Sundayís 76-69 win against North Carolina in the NCAA Tournament East Regional Final, reports CBSSports.comís Ken Berger.

Jay-Z, rapper and part-owner of the New jersey Nets, might have violated NBA rules because Kentucky has multiple potential first-round draft picks on its roster.

Berger equates the incident to Celtics GM Danny Ainge sitting with Kevin Durant's mother during the 2007 Big 12 tournament. Ainge and the Celtics were fined $30,000 for the infraction.

even tho it may go against the rules it's really stupid. How do you recruit a player that has no power in choosing where he wants to be (without getting a bad rep).

Meh, if we're talking about picks late in the 1st round, then maybe I could see a reason for concern. You could have a situation where a player refuses to workout for particular teams pre-draft in order to decrease the liklihood of them picking him (and thus give him a better chance at getting picked by the Nets). Later in the 1st round, teams mgiht care more about seeing players workout, since the picks aren't as clear cut. But I doubt that's the case here. This was probably nothing more than Jay-Z hanging out with some ballers. They need to investigate for the sake of professionalism and integrity, even though there probably isn't any fire or smoke.

I believe they own the Lakers pick, which they acquired via the Vujacic trade.
