D'Alessandro: NBA Warned Jay-Z To Stop Tampering with LeBron

Dave D'Alessandro writes the NBA warned the Nets and minority owner Jay-Z that the hip-hop impresario was close to 'tampering' with LeBron James. In recent comments attributed to him by Sports Illustrated, Jay-Z, a friend of James, suggested the Cav superstar might be better off with the Nets. Under league 'tampering' rules, one club--including its ownership--is forbidden from recruiting players already under contract with another club.
