Not being able to party with Hov..this may help end the lockout quick
Oh, the horror. This damn NBA lockout continues to cause NBA players untold pain.

Like not being able to get in to the VIP areas of swank Los Angeles parties.

Like the GQ party Thursday where Jay-Z was in attendance along with Carmelo Anthony, Blake Griffin, Andre Iguodala, Russell Westbrook, JaVale McGee and Shannon Brown, among others. Terezowens.com has the details (via I am a GM).

“So all the athletes were clamoring to talk to Jay-Z in his private section, even Melo, but because of the lockout, Jay had to turn them all down. He refused to let any of them thru, and also warned his security to watch out because of his NBA ownership, he wasn’t allowed to fraternize with them,” said our source.

Jay-Z is rich, doesn’t mean he wants to pay out a $500,000 fine to the league. Smart man.

But I would have loved to see the security guard turning all those guys away. That would have been entertaining.

so him owning like .001 percent of a team means he cant talk to players

HAAAAA!!
On a serious note, I think the players forgot that he was an owner, and especially on the grounds that stars refused to go to NJN, i doubt he wants to fraternize with most of them anyways.

An owner is still an owner no matter how much percentage. Especially on the grounds that he is a high profile owner.

What kind of owner says "The Nets could go 0 for 82 and I'd look at you like this **** gravy". He isn't a real owner.

he also says in another song "then actually believe half of what you see. None of what you hear, even if it's spat by me."

Do you think the NBA warned him of this, or that he thought of it? I would have figured it wouldn't matter now that the union has been dissolved and everything.

perhaps he just doesnt like them or something. i was at the jay z/kanye concert in miami on tuesday and both lebron and dwade were in jay z's VIP section. they even got a shot out from jay z himself, and im pretty sure they all hung out after the show

@ESPNChrisPalmer tweeted this from the main GQ party:

We've reached Ground Zero: Jay-Z, Timberlake, Rudy Gay, Matt Barnes holding a mini summit.

and I didn't even think about it. I assumed this meant they were all talking to each other - I wonder if this ends up resulting in fines?

I would've done the same thing and I'm sure Melo understands its just business.

I hate jay-zed (how we say it in canada jks), but I got a little more respect for him for that move...It would be even funnier if other rapper who weren`t owners started shunning them.

If the NFL was on strike this could have been a headline: Autograph signing gets fan $500,000 fine.

JaVale McGee would have been turned down regardless.

Good on Jay-Z... I would have turned them away even without the fine if I were him. Greedy mother****ers ****ing up our season. What's up with Melo's erkel glasses anyway? OJ Mayo can pull that off but melo just looks like a *****. no homo.

You gotta give Matt Barnes credit. Here is a guy who was a D-Leaguer...and to be honest, really sucks...although he has worked on his 3 a little bit he still really really sucks...and people treat him like he is a star. Wow
