Monday Night Sports Illustrated crowned LeBron James as their 2016 Sportsperson of the year. This is James second time earning this honor, previously wining in 2012. Now the REAL story comes not from the recipient, but the person who was handing out the award, who was Brooklyn Nets Owner Jay Z!
Jay Z gave a great speech on LeBron about him being a great son, father, husband, and amazing NBA player. This speech took a left turn when Jay Z started talking about LeBron being a great leader to his "posse". Referencing when Spurs Coach Phil Jackson commented on James and the Cavaliers earlier this season in an interview. Immediately following the statement by Jay Z, LeBron could be seen mouthing words like "stop it" and "be quiet" to Jay Z.
Could this spark a beef between Brooklyn Nets Owner Jay Z and the Spurs Coach Phil Jackson? I guess we will have to wait and see, as of now Phil Jackson has made no comments towards Jay Z, but this is not to say he won't. Only time will tell.
