Jay-Z isn’t just content to be a great dad (he’s already helped his new daughter Blue Ivy reach the Billboard charts); he just has to be a fantastic uncle too. When Jay and Beyonce stepped out to Madison Square Garden this weekend to catch Hova’s New Jersey Nets face off against the Miami Heat, he made it a point to introduce his nephew Julez to Heat superstar (and personal friend) Lebron James, who handed the awestruck seven-year-old his headband, his arm guard and his fresh-off-the-court Nike sneakers. All of this begs the question: if this was a typical Sunday, what is Jay going to do for young Julez at Christmas?
It was an adorable scene, and Julez’s delight was obvious. His mother Solange (the other hyper-talented member of the Knowles clan) tweeted an ecstatic thanks to Lebron, saying: “Thank you @KingJames, for making Julez’s day, week, month… ect. He has a permanent smile:) Very, very kind of you.”
Indeed, it was so cute that Jay-Z didn’t even seem to mind that his Nets lost, 101-98.
