A-List Celebrities Return...Led by Jay-Z and Beyonce'

The Nets have played three games so far and they've already attracted some big name celebrities, from Mikhail Prokhorov's billionaire buddy and Chelsea FC owner Roman Abramovich to Kim Kardashian (who needs no introduction) and topped by the biggest celebrity couple of them all, (minority owner) Jay-Z and Beyonce'. 

For Jay-Z, it was his first appearance at a Nets home game since late in the 2008-09 season.  As Brett Yormark noted in an interview with a Russian sports site in September, "He didn’t like what was happening [with the team, with] the image of the team. But now, with the relocation quite close, he’s in a different mood. He has a lot in common with Mikhail."  In fact, Prokhorov's #2, Dmitry Razumov, sat next to Jay at the Pistons game.
