Did Hovi Hov Violate NBA Rules When He Visited University Of Kentucky’s Basketball Team??

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.

      My friends told me about — AffluentS ingle* C0- M —–told It’s the be’st pl’ace to me’et Milli’onaire si’ngles. It is the first and best club for wealthy people and their admirers. D’ating CEOs, professional athletes, doctors, lawyers, entrepreneurs, professional models and cheerleaders, and even Hollywood celebrities is an easy experience there…you don’t have to be rich ,but you can meet one there.😉

    Although I’m sure it was a real treat for the players to meet JayZ, this whole meeting set off alarms in my head. Jay-Z has to remember that as an NBA owner he has to keep his distance from the NCAA.

    Brandon Knight is a ponit guard the nest already have argueablely the best in D-will so i think this is non-sense

    The fine might be peanuts to him,but he could get those players in some serious trouble with the NCAA. Not every dude on that team is going to play in the NBA,and they could face punishment by the NCAA which could hurt their eligibility. Jay is a part owner of an NBA franchise,and being so,he is not allowed to have contact with college players,the NBA has rules forbidding it and so does the NCAA.You can say the rules are stupid,but they still exists and he may have gotten these kids in some serious trouble.

  • Panamanian Miguel

    thats the dumbest shyt,then they wonder why these kids wanna go right to the pros

  • The Beast

    There are no NCAA penalties for meeting a famous person. The fine would come from the NBA who has rules against tempering. DUH!!!!!!

    • jj

      It wouldn’t be because they met a famous person.

      DUH!

  • ~ChynaPeach~

  • TAHANGTINM!

    If they had ownership interest in an NBA franchise,then they would indeed be fined.It does not matter if he is a entertainer,as a part owner of an NBA Franchise,the rules are clear,that he is not allowed to have contact with players who are still in college.
