Winners and Losers: A Look at the Success Rate of Celeb-Owned Sports Teams

Jay-Z

Team: Brooklyn Nets (formerly the New Jersey Nets)
Years of Ownership: 2004-present
Championships Won and Playoff Appearances: Zero championships / Three playoff appearances

So what if Hova only owns a reported one-fifteenth of one percent of the Brooklyn Nets, clearly he has enough clout to pick the team up from Jersey and drop them in his backyard in Brooklyn. So far, the Nets haven't seen much success since Jigga put his money up in '04, but the team's got a new look, new players, and of course, a new home. Time will tell if the Nets can play ball.
