Jay-Z Kentucky Wildcats NCAA tournament 2011

Apparently, NBA officials didn’t get a warm and fuzzy feeling when Jay-Z stepped into Kentucky’s locker room to congratulate the team on their NCAA Elite 8 win.

As a matter of fact, they smelled something fishy.

The NBA plans to investigate New Jersey Nets part-owner Jay-Z for the rapper’s visit to Kentucky’s locker room after the Wildcats clinched a Final Four berth in Newark, N.J., on Sunday, CBSSports.com reported.

Jay-Z was photographed and videotaped congratulating the Wildcats after the game. Kentucky has a few NBA prospects on its roster including freshmen Terrance Jones and Brandon Knight, who are both projected as lottery picks by some mock draft sites.

CBS noted that the interaction could be considered similar to when Celtics general manager Danny Ainge sat next to Kevin Durant’s mother during the 2007 Big 12 Tournament when Durant was at Texas. Ainge was fined $30,000 for the incident.

Both cases sound like good ol’ fashioned hate to us.
