Carmelo Anthony - Jay-z 'Fails To Win Over Anthony'

Rapper JAY-Z has reportedly lost his bid to convince basketball star CARMELO ANTHONY to join his team, the New Jersey Nets.
The hip-hop mogul, who holds a share in the professional team, was said to have met with Anthony and Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov on Saturday (19Feb11) to discuss a move.
Jay-Z was then said to have cornered Anthony the following day (20Feb11) at a party thrown in conjunction with the NBA All-Star game in Los Angeles.
The Big Pimpin' hitmaker refused to pose for photographers at the Philippe Chow restaurant bash and headed straight for the VIP area where Anthony was seated, according to the New York Daily News.
But the New Jersey Nets' poor performances on the court haven't impressed Anthony - he was reportedly "noncommittal" during their discussions.
A source tells the publication, "Jay-Z's a baller (successful) in everything but basketball players."
