    The Nets are moving to Brooklyn. Jay-Z is a minority owner in the deal. The people in New Jersey have protested the Nets moving. If they would have supported the team from jump, the team might not have been sold. So the Nets might move into a luxury arena in downtown BK.

    i knew he was going to make it happen
    CONGRATULATION to Jay-Z
    The NETS will become a far better team in BROOKLYN N.Y
    then New Jersey i have to agree if better support was given
    this team might have lasted .....i wish Jay-Z the best of luck
    and a happy future as a minority business OWNER.

    Yeah, I think that he is one of the first minorities to own a basketball team. Many wishes to Jay-Z and retiring with more money in his pocket.

    Actually little sister, Robert Johnson of BET owns the Charlotte Bobcats outright. Also Magic Johnson is a part owner of the Lakers. Jordan briefly was a minor owner of the Wizards. However, Jay-Z's accomplishment is great!

    yes and I. Thomas had his finger tips at one time in the Raptors
    what will really be great to see from the dream land is
    Jordan , Thomas & Magic bring a new team in the league from a
    city not on the map .....it's only a dream ....lol
