He might wish he had a re-do.
Longtime NBA columnist Peter Vecsey has recently resumed publishing columns via Patreon after a five-year hiatus. He’s also fairly active on Twitter.
Vecsey probably would have been wise to have not tweeted what he did tonight when describing a brief dust-up between New York Knicks center Enes Kanter and Cleveland Cavaliers superstar LeBron James.
This is a prime example of when trying to keep it real goes wrong.
Like Kanter is gonna 2B intimidated by LeBron, guy who stood up 2 Tayyip Erdogan. Imagine him being scared of a n*****who breathes the same air as him

Quoting Biggie might have made the 74-year-old Vecsey feel hip but he should have opted for another line, or just not used the n-word, even with the editing.
If Vecsey was trying to draw some attention to himself, this likely isn’t the kind he was looking for.
