Jay-Z Lost Bid for Carmelo Anthony


Jay-Z Lost Bid for Carmelo Anthony


The Rapper failed to convince the New York Knicks star to join the New Jersey Nets during a discussion at the NBA All-Star game party in Los Angeles on February 20.

Rapper Jay-Z has reportedly lost his bid to convince basketball star Carmelo Anthony to join his team, the New Jersey Nets. The hip-hop mogul, who holds a share in the professional team, was said to have met with Anthony and Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov on Saturday, February 19 to discuss a move.

Jay-Z was then said to have cornered Anthony the following day, February 20 at a party thrown in conjunction with the NBA All-Star game in Los Angeles.

The "Big Pimpin'" hitmaker refused to pose for photographers at the Philippe Chow restaurant bash and headed straight for the VIP area where Anthony was seated, according to the New York Daily News. But the New Jersey Nets' poor performances on the court haven't impressed Anthony - he was reportedly "noncommittal" during their discussions.

A source tells the publication, "Jay-Z's a baller (successful) in everything but basketball players."
