Phil Mushnick Wonders Why the Brooklyn Nets Aren’t Called the New York N*****s
As long as the Nets are allowing Jay-Z to call their marketing shots — what a shock that he chose black and white as the new team colors to stress, as the Nets explained, their new “urban” home — why not have him apply the full Jay-Z treatment?
Why the Brooklyn Nets when they can be the New York N——s? The cheerleaders could be the Brooklyn B—-hes or Hoes. Team logo? A 9 mm with hollow-tip shell casings strewn beneath. Wanna be Jay-Z hip? Then go all the way!
Now, it’s pretty clear that he’s being sarcastic. He’s also trying to be funny.
He’s currently taking a good amount of heat from the peanut gallery online, and given the current politically correct atmosphere that news organizations try to adhere facilitate, the two people he made laugh probably aren’t worth the potential fallout from this little joke.
