So much for New York City star power. Both Derek Jeter of the New York Yankees and rap star Jay-Z say they won’t help the New York Knicks or New Jersey Nets recruit LeBron James.
“It wouldn’t make sense,” the Yankees captain told ESPNNewYork.com.
James’ good friend Jay-Z echoed Jeter’s sentiment on recruitment.
“That’s his decision,” the hip-hop mogul and part owner of the New Jersey Nets said in a Rolling Stone interview.
“We’re friends — we’ve still gotta hang out! I don’t want to convince somebody to do something, then have to see him and say, ‘Uh, yeah, we’re 4-30 … sorry.’”
