The NBA has 99 Problems with Jay-Z's visit to Kentucky locker room.

The NBA is looking into a visit to the Kentucky locker room by part-owner of the New York Knicks Jay-Z. The Association's rules bar contacts with non-draft eligible players by team officials, and apparently Jay-Z counts as being one.

An NBA spokesman confirms that the league is investigating Jay-Z’s presence in Kentucky’s locker room after the Wildcats clinched a Final Four berth.
The rapper visited the players after their victory over North Carolina on Sunday at the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J, home of the Nets. Jay-Z is a part-owner of the team and attended the Nets’ 120-116 loss at New York on Wednesday.

No word from the NCAA yet about the NBA probe. But you just have to know they're looking for a reason to go after John Calipari. Jay-Z may have handed it too them.
