Brooklyn’s Finest

04.18.2013

JAY'S I

Being a member of the Nets organization surpassed some of my greatest ambitions. It was never about an investment; it was about the NETS and Brooklyn. My job as an owner is over but as a fan it has just begun. I’m a Brooklyn Net forever. It’s been an honor to work with Mikhail Prokhorov, Dmitry Razumov, Christophe Charlier, ONEXIM Sports and Entertainment, Brett Yormark and all the wonderful people involved in making the Nets first class. My sincerest thanks goes to Bruce Ratner, who first introduced the idea of moving the Nets to Brooklyn. A thank you and deepest appreciation goes to the fans. You are the lifeblood of any team.

The Nets have made their mark on the NBA and as they enter a new era, Roc Nation does as well; as we embark on Roc Nation Sports. Our newest endeavor is committed to building the brands of professional athletes as we have done for some of today’s top music artists. For Roc Nation Sports to function at its full potential, NBA rules stipulate that I relinquish my ownership in the Brooklyn Nets. It was a tough decision but as I stated earlier, it’s not about ownership. Congratulations to The Nets on a great season and making the playoffs! I will always be a Brooklyn Net.

    If ‘NO ONE CARES’ and especially you since you had the urge to declare it: you must have read it to come to that judgement and CARED so much to leave a comment…wait a sec -TWICE. And furthermore CARED so much to find your self on this page (website). But I guess you are right no one cares notably you.

    Hope that our culture understands that we could be mature, professional, and show some class, as we could also move forward with our lives. We may not own a sports team, a record label, a club, alcoholic beverages, or go on tours. We may not own a private jet, several huge homes, and many cars. Thats all good to achieve, but moving forward to achieve our own personal AMBITIONS is better and more fulfilling. We should go after than whats bigger than ourselves. Jay shows an example with everything he has done. He has influenced and continues to influence a culture to do better and go further with our lives. Don’t try to be Jay, but create a world like his.

    Jay, not sure if you’re gonna read this, but keep your head up even in the midst of chaos. Your fame is not for you. But your fame serves as a constant inspiration for millions, who want to do better with their lives.

    I love and live by your quote, “everything I do, I own.” That is powerful and exemplifies: freedom, flexibility and fulfillment. Nice ;)

    I appreciate someone who addresses an issue in the media head-on, to alleviate the rumor mills and assumptions; speaking up on your own behalf before someone writes an uninformed version of what happened. That’s what you call BOWING OUT GRACEFULLY….. Best wishes in your new endeavors.
