Jay Z may have sold his minority interest in the Nets but he told you in “Open Letter” that he was keeping the courtside seats. Hov was in the building for the first playoff game of the Brooklyn Nets era. Of course Jay had to stunt a little fashion realness for the masses, rocking a black Rich Kids “HOOLIGANS” sweatshirt and black jeans. His look was finished off with a Just Don Nets snakeskin snapback and Charles Barkley’s Nike Air Force 180′s. And that cute little guy that was his guest, that’s his friend Ty Ty’s son. Nets win their first playoff game at Barclay’s Center, 106-89.

Barkley, who is an analyst on TNT’s “Inside the NBA,” has said on many occasions that he doesn’t see the Los Angeles Clippers as true title contenders because they have “no toughness.” Well, Los Angeles Clippers forward Caron...
