"But Jay-Z may have already found a work-around. Though he once owned as much as 1.5% of the $530 million team, his stake has dwindled to one-fifteenth of one percent. Why? Jay-Z's representatives didn't immediately respond to a request for comment, but it seems he may have converted the difference into equity in the Barclays Center. He now owns roughly one-fifth of one percent of the billion-dollar building. Given that his remaining stake in the Nets is worth about $350,000--comprising less than 1% of Jay-Z's net worth--it's no longer a financially significant sum to the rapper or the team. Jay-Z could easily sell his stake back to billionaire owner Mikhail Prokhorov or trade it for more equity in the arena itself. Either way, his existing interest in the Barclays Center would allow him to keep profiting from the Nets' success while staying within the NBA's rules. Knowing Jay-Z, that was probably his plan all along."(Forbes)

It's baffling how many people are so misinformed. What he's doing is no different to the Kroenke family in Denver. Stan Kroenke sold the Nuggets to his son Josh so he can buy the Rams in the NFL. Stan still has 100% input into Denver but he simply cannot officially own the franchise while he owns the Rams.

Jay-Z will still have the same role but he simply will not have shares in the the team. The logic that all of a sudden, Jay is walking away and will never be apart of the Nets again is just hilarious.

Especially when he still keeps stake in Barclays. He put his pride on the line to make the brand work despite the NBA not being in favor or Black/White.

Why would Jay walk away from the 4th most popular merchandised team in the league? He took business venture over his stake. If he could, I’m sure he would love to get it back. It’s not even out of the question, he could sell it to Beyonce and keep the investment going now that there is profitability coming out of it.
Finally someone with some fu*king sense. He has equity in the Barclay's Center. That's worth MORE than a stake in the team - concerts, events, sports, everything that is held at the Barclay's Center he's a part of. Smart business move. This is why he's at the top of his game not just in rap music.

fu*k all of you, Jay Z owned .0000000000000000000000000000000000001 of the team anyway.

But how much did he make off of that little %? That % gave him access to so many things. Doesn't he have a club in the arena? Didn't that % give him more access to the arena for concerts etc? that % gave him more access to the players allowing him to build relationships. As the saying goes...
































The winner is HOV!!!

obviously his "ownership" was a promotional tool for the team as they made the move to his native BK


Move is done, not much left to do here.......on to the next one
