The Nets could go 0 for 82 and I'd look at you like this shit gravy

from Kanye West (Ft. Jay Z) – Niggas in Paris Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Jay is a minority owner of the Nets. In the 2009-2010 season, there was a lot of talk about whether they’d end up with the worst record in NBA history. Fortunately for them, that wasn’t the case; they ended up going 12-70 that year.

Having said that, Jay-Z doesn’t care how many games the Nets win or lose, because he knows he’s still ballin'! This was an especially good attitude to have in the face of the lockout that was brewing at recording time.

And anyway, the worse the Nets do, the easier it’ll be for Jay to move them to Brooklyn. This man cannot lose!

2013 Update: Jay-Z dumped those silly Nets to become a certified agent to the likes of Kevin Durant, and then the Nets went out and added Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce to their roster, as well as Jason Kidd to coach.
