If Bon Jovi owned the team and played Poison and Motley Crue all game long, I'd complain about that, too. It just seems like it's more of a concert/entertainment event than a basketball game. I'm sure plenty of people enjoy that but it's not for me.

Jay-Z owns what, half of a percent of the team? He's hardly an influential owner, and more so just a marketing gimmick. Again, that's fine, but it just seems silly to me. If they want to firmly entrench themselves as an equal in New York, they need to do so on the court. Creating an entertainment circus will only get them so far, IMO.
