The Success of the Brooklyn Nets Rests On Jay Z’s Shoulders

Rap mogul Jay Z will officially open the brand new Barclay’s Center with a concert tonight. The 675,000-square-foot arena in Brooklyn, NY is home to the Brooklyn Nets. Without Jay Z’s influence this night would probably never happened.

The 42-year-old rapper, real name Shawn Carter, used his political clout and business connections to move the former New Jersey Nets to Brooklyn, which is just a stone’s throw from his former stomping grounds where he dealt drugs as a wayard teen.

In an excellent article titled JAY-Z BARELY OWNS THE NETS AND THAT BARELY MATTERS, Vice.com explained that Jay Z “barely” owns the Nets. In fact, Jay’s ownership amounts to one fiftieth of 1 percent — not even a full percent.

To put it into perspective, Jay invested a million dollars in the team in 2003, which is a little more than what the Nets will be paying CJ Watson — who is good at Twitter but not that great at basketball — to sit on their bench this season.

Jay Z used his powerful connections with city government to help Russian businessman — and Nets owner — Bruce Ratner secure land to build the Barclay’s Center by squeezing poor residents out of their homes.

Vice.com writes: “it’s way easier to convince a city to let you bring a sports team there if you’re a really cool professional rap guy, especially one who grew up around the place where the stadium’s supposed to be.”

Vice.com also noted Jay Z owns Translation, an advertising agency whose only client is the Brooklyn Nets. If the Jay Z/Brooklyn Nets/Barclay’s deal is beginning to sound like an organized Rico racket, those thoughts will evaporate once the Nets ring up a winning season.

      I’m not gonna say much but its the team who hold’s the fate not necessarily Jay Z…that and upper mgmt.

      But for Jay to bring something of this magnitude to Brooklyn, I can respect that. Cuz Brooklyn when and where I grew up…we never saw no shyt like this happening.

      So that I can respect him for. :yes:

      The arena itself looks nice…..I’m still not sure as to why they needed to move the Nets to Brooklyn….none the less I could care less. NOT a fan of Jay Z and I probably never will be….struggling team, hasn’t had a winning record in YEARS, yet Billion(s) have been spent…I just don’t get it.

      So I went to see this new dentist who by the way is Nigerian. He sees me filling out my new patient packet in the waiting area and tells me he needs to talk to me. He takes me back to a room and says you are MsDivaro. When I talked to you on the phone the other day I didn’t know you we’re African American. You sure didn’t sound like it all the while smiling and chit. He says I’m happy to help you with getting your tooth problem corrected. I know you are a professional and your schedule is hectic but ill work with you. Just let me know what you need. Now I’m wandering if he is going to give me a discount. I go back next Friday at 4. He usually don’t so late appts. but he will for me. Hmmmm he gonna put me under I hope he don’t take advantage of me.

      A popular fifth-grade teacher fatally shot a masked teenager in self-defense outside his neighbor’s house during what appeared to be an attempted late-night burglary, then discovered the teen was his son, state police said.

      Spokesman Lt. J. Paul Vance said Friday that police are trying to determine if the gun used by Jeffrey Giuliano, the father, was registered. It will be at least a week before the probe is done.

      Tyler Giuliano, described as an easygoing 15-year-old who enjoyed flying small planes, was shot at about 1 a.m. Thursday in New Fairfield, a lake community of about 14,000 along the New York line just north of Danbury.

      “It’s something out of a Hollywood script,” said First Selectman John Hodge, who doesn’t recall another killing in his eight years on the job. “You certainly don’t expect it to happen in your own small hometown where there’s very little crime.”

      Jeffrey Giuliano’s sister, who was alone in the home, believed someone was breaking in and called Giuliano, who lives next door, state police said. Giuliano grabbed a gun and went outside to investigate, troopers said.

      He confronted someone wearing a black ski mask and black clothing and then fired his gun when the person went at him with a shiny weapon in his hand, police said. They would not provide details about what kind of weapon it was.

      When police officers arrived almost immediately after they were called, the teen was lying in the driveway of his aunt’s home with gunshot wounds and the father was sitting on the grass. The teen was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.

      A state trooper pulled back the ski mask to reveal that the victim was Tyler Giuliano, though it was unclear if Jeffrey Giuliano already knew that. It was also unclear if he was actually trying to burglarize the house or if it was some type of prank gone wrong.

      “All in all it’s a tragedy,” Vance said.

      Jeffrey Giuliano hasn’t returned a message seeking comment on what happened. Alicia Roy, superintendent of schools in New Fairfield, said Giuliano is a native of the town who offers summer music and zoology camps for his students and plays in a band that raises a lot of money for charity.

      “”He wanted to teach in the community he grew up,” she said. “He connects with the students. He’s a caring person. Very interactive class.”

      Tyler Giuliano was a student at New Fairfield High School, a short walk from the neighborhood where he was killed. Roy said he was a member of the Civil Air Patrol and was described as an easy-going young man who enjoyed spending time with his family. During a storm last year, he volunteered at a shelter set up the local high school, helping to serve meals and set up cots.

      Roy said Tyler especially enjoyed flying gliders and single-engine planes out of Danbury airport.

      “He would fly as many hours as possible,” she said.

      No charges have been filed. An autopsy is planned.

      Wait a minute why did your hubby come in screaming at you WTF you thought you grabbed your advil

      Because I was standing up sleep with money in my hand in a room full of employees (with my mouf wide open)…I had been having the xantax in my purse for a long time. Someone told me it would help me get some sleep. The next day I couldnt even remember what happened.

      @Choco….girl, I made a mistake and took a xantax one night after we had closed up. My husband stayed at home with the kids so I was running everthing. By the end of the night I was counting money next thing I know my hubby was coming through the door screaming at me!!! I took a whole bar (I thought I had grabbed my advil. I blanked out 5 minutes after taking that mess with money in my hands. Thank God for my security guards!!!!
