Jay-Z & Billionaire -- LeBron Will See You Now

7/1/2010 1:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

New Jersey Nets owners Jay-Z and Russian billionaire Mikhail Prokhorov were just granted an audience with the king -- LeBron James -- and as you can see by the photo they wasted no time ... buzzing into the meeting.

LeBron is meeting his free agency suitors at the IMG offices in Cleveland today.

So picture this -- LeBron, Jay-Z, and one of the richest freakin' men in the world all at one table.  Might be the first time in a long time LeBron is the poorest guy in the room ... for now.

LaBron James is intelligent enough to seek hiring of another club since the hire of Shaquille O'Neill!

News Flash:
1-O'Neill joins the Cleveland Cavailers club and in turn impedes the playoff progress as forseen at time of signing to the Cavilers Club.
2-After one year LaBron decides to leave the team which is intelligent just in terms of releasing the LaCoon group from his shoulders that has completely impeded the teams progressand now evident with the desired release of LaBron James!
3-Does LaBron feel good enough to join the Timberwolves?
4-From Hoops to Loops as most of the NBA stars feel about themselves!

I am going to be grinning from ear to ear, like a Kardashian at a basketball convention, when LeBron James goes to what ever team he's going. And that team ends up going nowhere......Artofwar

JAY-Z OFFICIALLY NETS CO-OWNER: Retiring rapper approved by NBA board.
Posted on: August 13, 2004 08:49 MST
Filed under: Rap
The vote was unanimous. On Wednesday, Brooklyn-born rapper Jay-Z became an official owner of the New Jersey Nets following approval by the NBA Board of Governors.
Jigga is a minority investor in an ownership group headed by real estate developer Bruce Ratner that will reportedly pay an estimated $300 million for the team.

Ratner hopes to move the team from the Garden State to Brooklyn, and into a new 19,000-seat arena.

Plans for the venue and an office and residential complex have met mixed reaction from area residents.

Lets face it, billionaires and wooing is not going to get Lebron where he wants to be. The only team in the NE that is able to give Lebron the future he wants is the Celtics and it is not going to happen. A power trio never works because to much ego’s on one team kills it. I am a Magic fan, but I know that the only place in the league that Lebron will become the person he wants to be is in Houston. Yes Houston Rockets. This is the team that Lebron can rise above Jordan and Kobe and they both know it. Houston has everything to offer a player like Lebron. I have to say it. If money is not a #1 issue and you want to become the all time best Lebron. James, shock the world and go to Houston. Houston is the next LA!-not a fan yet, but Houston is a team you will change the world with and Houston is already on stage to become the Best City in the US in the next 5 years with the economy there, Earth Quest theme parks, Lakewood Church, The Toyota Center, and places like Houston Galleria® and Kingwood. Your choice Labron. Make it the right one, its your future. Anywhere else is going to end up a Charles Barkley career. The agent that goes to Houston goes to the future.
