Jeter, Jay-Z: Knicks, Nets Are On Their Own

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

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.’”
