Reddit co-founder wants to buy out Jay-Z's share of the Brooklyn Nets NBA team

Reddit co-founder wants to buy out Jay-Z's NBA team, the Brooklyn Nets

Right now, Jay-Z is a part-owner of the NBA's Brooklyn Nets, but if Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian has his way, he'll soon replace the rapper as the part-owner. Jay-Z announced earlier today that he intends to become an agent for NBA players, which means he'll have to sell his 0.067% stake in the Nets.


These shares, are what the Reddit co-founder are after, and he actually tweeted his interest in the Nets earlier this week. Ohanian hit Twitter up again on Wednesday, posting the above tweet. In the thread he linked to, he makes a compelling case on what he could bring to the table if he had that sliver ownership of the Nets:

I realize it's a token amount. But I actually live in Brooklyn and I'm pretty good with the Internet - I reckon that could be helpful. Also - AMAs from ALL THE PLAYERS.
