Jay-Z to Rep the New Jersey Nets in the NBA Draft Lottery

Jay-ZDraft
How great is it being Jay-Z? The man is not only a rap icon, music executive, and Mr. Beyonce, but he's also an investor in the New Jersey Nets. So on top of his domination of the game, he gets ringside seats at the actual game, and, as it turns out, he also gets to represent the team at the NBA Draft Lottery.

Jay will be one of 14 team representatives at tomorrow's lottery, which will be televised live on ESPN at 8pm, before Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals between the Boston Celtics and the Detroit Pistons.

The Nets only have a 1.1 percent chance of securing the first pick in the draft, and a less than 4 percent chance of getting a top 3 pick. Carter, “the Mike Jordan of the rap recordin’,” remains optimistic, however.

“This is very exciting and I hope my nickname 'Lucky Lefty' holds up,” he said. If "lucky" means a $150-million Live Nation deal and being tight with LeBron James -- who will be a free agent in two seasons -- then how lucky can one guy be.
