The411 Update: The National Basketball Association, (NBA) fined the New Jersey Nets $50,000.  The fine was sanctioned because minority owner of the Nets, JayZ congratulated the University of Kentucky Wildcats after a victory. 

To see the original story look below. 

The411:  The NBA is reportedly going to look into a celebration where Jay-Z congratulated the University of Kentucky men's basketball team for advancing to the NCAA Final Four defeating North Carolina Sunday night.   Did Jay-Z step out of bounds when he visited the Kentucky locker room?  It appears that the National Basketball Association is calling foul.  

As a minority owner of the New Jersey Nets it’s frowned upon, but not an NCAA violation.  However, it may be a problem because the Wildcats have future NBA draft picks. 

Tell me what you think?  Was it just a great gesture by the rap star?  Just as a side note-this is not the first person who visited a Kentucky team.  President Bill Clinton visited the University of Louisville men's basketball team's locker room after the Notre Dame win.
