You can add Jay-Z to the rapidly expanding list of people who now resent LeBron James. A source tells Mediatakeout.com the rapper and part-owner of the New Jersey Nets is upset James didn't consult him on his free agency plans. Frank DiGiacomo of the New York Daily News' Gatecrasher blog reports Jay-Z is "pissed" over the snub. Explains DiGiacomo:

According to Mediatakeout's insider, James' silent treatment made Jay-Z look bad with Nets' management. While LeBron was making his decision, 'he didn't even take [Jay-Z's] calls. It made [Jay-Z] look like he couldn't deliver to the Nets management,' the website's source says. If Jay-Z could have landed a star player, 'he could have been seen as a legitimate asset to the team,' the source said. 'Now they see him as just dead weight.'
