In case you have not yet realized, there is no stopping Mr. Shawn Carter in his attempt to dominate every aspect of the entertainment industry. After much speculation that Jay Z would be forced to sell his 0.067 share of ownership in the Brooklyn Nets to pursue his Roc Nation Sports Agency, the music mogul decided Jason Kidd was the perfect person to sell his small stake to.
A source shared with the New York Post;
“Other owners want to give Jason a part ownership of the team, and urged Jay to sell his shares to him.”
The deal comes months after Jay started his Roc Nation sports agency. By selling his share of ownership, Mr. Carter has successfully avoided the ‘conflict of interest’ talk he was bound to hear due to his personal and professional investments. Roc Nation has signed New York Yankee Robinson Cano, Oklahoma City Thunder’s very own Kevin Durant and WNBA newcomer Skylar Diggins.
Kidd has signed on as the coach of the Brooklyn Nets for this forthcoming season. Unlike Jay Z, Kidd’s ownership will not be seen as a conflict of interest.
What can we say? Jay knew about these new rules!

Recent NFL Hall of Fame inductee Warren Sapp is a man of many talents. After being inducted into the Hall of Fame, Sapp went to a party and busted some epic dance moves.
Warren Sapp entered the party rocking his Hall of Fame jacket and just enjoying the festivities when the DJ called Sapp on stage. Sapp, without missing a beat, grabbed the mic and said, "One time like my dog Ray Lewis used to do." After that, came the epic dance break down. Let this be a lesson: don't sleep on the big dudes when it comes to dancing because we get busy!

Pamela Smith, the woman who claimed that basketball icon Michael Jordan had fathered her 17-year-old son, was ordered by a judge to pay him $9,704.13 for reportedly trying to milk the player out of thousands for a child whom she knew was not his, according to TMZ. Smith filed a paternity suit back in February of this year demanding she get full custody of their alleged son, insisting that Jordan take a paternity test and dole out child support dollars for knocking her up back in 1995. The legendary Hall of Famer, though, stood his ground and denied he was the Father of the boy.
But during the case's discovery process, Jordan's attorney uncovered the fact, that Smith named her ex as her son's biological Dad in her divorce filings.
Smith then withdrew her suit one month after filing it with the courts, but there was always a possibility that it could be refiled.
According to Estee Portnoy, a spokeswoman for the wealthy entrepreneur and majority owner of the NBA Charlotte Bobcats, stated then that Smith's legal move didn't have a leg to stand on and Jordan would not pay her one red cent.
Now, according to TMZ, on July 19th, a judge reportedly referred to Smith's filing as bogus and even called her out as a gold digging media hound who hired a publicist before even securing an attorney to represent her.
The judge then ordered Smith to ante up the money so that Jordan's legal tab would be satisfied.
