Rapper Jay-Z may have caught a case of March Madness, but it's the NBA that is mad because it plans to launch a probe into why he chose to make a surprise visit to the Kentucky locker room, according to a new report.
After the Wildcats won their regional final over North Carolina on Sunday night, the rapper, who also owns a minority stake in the Nets, decided to show up to the postgame celebration by visiting the team locker room at Prudential Center in Newark.

Jay-Z may have been there to congratulate the Wildcats for earning the school's first trip to the Final Four since 1998, but the NBA wants to know whether he was trying to get a word in with some future draft picks, according to the report.

Though the incident is not a violation of NCAA rules, CBSSports.com reported Wednesday that the NBA plans an investigation.
In the room with Jay-Z at the time where potential lottery picks Brandon Knight and Terrence Jones.
The Nets, at 23-50, have been eliminated from playoff contention and therefore will participate in the NBA Draft lottery that determines the order of the top selections.
In 2007, Celtics general manager Danny Ainge was fined $30,000 for a similar incident in which he sat with Kevin Durant's mother in the stands during the Big 12 tournament before Durant announced his intentions to leave Texas for the NBA.
Kentucky plays UConn on Saturday, and VCU faces Butler in the other semifinal at Houston's Reliant Stadium.
The NCAA title game will be played Monday in Houston.

Jordan was talking to UNC players once, why isn't there an investigation on that? No point of attacking something so useless like this.

Sounds Harmless to me. Jay Z can't congratulate the players? Its not he control what happens at the draft. The Nets can pick up who they want to when it's their pick.

Sounds like more poor judgment from Calipari to me. The man has a history of creating violations.....or allowing impropriety.

Especially when Jay-Z owns one more percent than all of us do. He has no say in who they draft or who they go after.
