Jay-Z missed out on LeBron, he couldn’t come through with his ‘i’m payin’ Dwyane Wade.’ statement (from his hit single Empire State of Mind), and he couldn’t hook Carmelo. The Nets didn’t miss out on a superstar though, as they completed a deadline deal to acquire Deron Williams – a certified top-3 point guard in the game. Jay-Z was in attendance at the Nets game on Monday night wearing the Air Jordan III in White/Cement Grey, sitting courtside with wife Beyonce and chatting it up with his new superstar employee. The Air Jordan III seems to be a favorite of Hov’s because he wore the same shoes during the NBA All-Star Weekend, but there’s no doubt he has a few dozen pairs on ice sitting in his mansion. Ah, the hard knock life. Check out Jay-Z after the jump!
