Jay Z and Lebron

It’s nice to see some New Yorkers are above the shameless PR-minded wooing of a sports star (yeah, I’m looking at you, Bloomberg). Jay Z will not be trying to convince LeBron James to come to New York. The main reason, as Jigga told Rolling Stone, is that the two are friends:

That’s his decision. We’re friends—we’ve still gotta hang out! I don’t want to convince somebody to do something, then have to see him and say, ‘Uh, yeah, we’re 4-30… sorry.’

Wow. A celebrity being totally sensible and down to earth about something! Hooray!
