Jay-Z mad at LeBron James?
"Jay never expected LeBron to sign with the Nets. He knew that no 25-year-old kid with James’ profile was going to spend years in Newark," the source tells Gatecrasher. "But he’s … at least disappointed, that LeBron didn’t consult with him." Still, our source says, "I don’t think it’s going to affect their friendship."
HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: The trail of jilted suitors grows.
Apparently, the ‘Greatest Rapper of All Time’ and ‘The King’ are at odds because New Jersey Nets minority owner Jay-Z felt friend LeBron James should have talked with him during free agency.
Jay-Z wasn’t expecting to sign James, but did expect a phone call.
Of course, Cleveland Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert and the state of Ohio didn’t receive this courtesy, so why would Jay-Z?
Unlike Gilbert, Jay-Z isn’t expected to release a scathing letter via the Nets’ website. Would he, however, take a subtle dig or two at James on his next single?
Probably not, but getting Jay-Z’s official side of the story would be interesting.
