Regardless of his ownership he was the one who moved the team to Brooklyn.....his pecentage might be small but his influence is apparently priceless.
i hope you dont believe that. jay-z has no influence on anything the nets do. he is the token guy for them. aka a puppet for the real owners.

What's sad is that all this time he only owned that small percentage but alot of n*ggas in here thought he owned half the team before this article, but y'all want to downplay his role. It's not just his raps that had you thinking that, it was his presence at all the Net's events and dealings.

You can call him a mascot or a figurehead all you want, but you can't deny his popularity and exposure to those who may not listen to rap or know Rocawear is dead, or Ace of space taste like sh*t has grown exponentially. That mill that he gave up will be returned to him tenfold and while y'all laughing on the net , he's laughing to the bank.

This.

this thread isn't about Jay, it's about the deception and all of a sudden everyone knew what percentage Jay-Z owned.

If people knew this this would have be brought to the light a long time ago. I don't see any of these posters in old threads saying Jay only own a percentage of a percentage.

I applaud Jay for manipulating things, but for you guys to sit back and act like this is old news.

But then again, this is BX, where is everyone is right and everyone else is wrong.

i been saying this since day one but nobody wants to listen. Jay-Z has no authority whatsoever involving that basketball team. He is a puppet that they put there to make money. Just like putting "executive produced by Jay-Z" on the cover of NBA2K13. Do you really think Jay-Z had anything at all to do with the publication of that video game? is Jay-Z a computer programmer all of a sudden? Did he write the code for Unreal Engine 5 and is just keeping it under wraps till Blueprint 4 drops? NO....he has absolutely nothing at all to do with it other then maybe some musical selections but they put his name up there and for some reason people want to buy it.

You focused on one part but completely ignored the next. It's not Jay's deception; yeah he exaggerated things but that's what rappers do. Jay was at all the signings, all the press conferences, all the interviews and photo ops. Players that might have come to the team reported they spoke with Jay. That's not all his deception, put that on the nets also.

As I said, you can call him a mascot all you want but he's definitely the face and voice of the new Brooklyn Nets and is putting in more work than your average .015% would
