We missed the Vibe 15th anniversary edition interview with Jay-Z (it happens). In it, the Nets' minority owner talks about his relationship with Lebron James: "There's a big trail of e-mails that we have where I'm almost like a coach on the sidelines for him 'cause...that's my little brother! I'm giving him advice, even outside of 'Take the ball to the elbow and shoot.' The psychology of what's going on: That's my role in his life."
