Jay-Z Really Enjoys His Involvement With The Nets

One of the coolest post-Blueprint things that Jay-Z has done is become a minority owner of The Brooklyn Nets… Needless to say, with his brand and his clout, it automatically makes it seems as though his ownership is greater, but that’s not stopping him from enjoying his involvement. During an interview with GQ, Jay revealed what he thinks are the coolest things of the new team…

The jerseys: “All-black everything! And the lettering—the typography reminds you of the old subway. It’s classic.”

The court: “It’s herringbone, which is crazy. In fact, the NBA fought me on it. They said if it gets shot on TV, the lines will mess up the screen. I’m like, this ain’t 1988—we’ve got HD. We ended up taking it to the old arena in New Jersey to test it.”

Barclays Center: “It’s beautiful, amazing, really well-done. It’s just classy. It’s still an arena, so there’s only so much you can do. But for an arena, it’s actually really beautiful.”

Brooklyn: “Well, Brooklyn is cool; that’s like the definition. There’s nothing on earth cooler than Brooklyn.”

Jay-Z: “Me? Ha, I am Brooklyn.”
