NBA Writer Peter Vecsey Getting Heat For Tweet Quoting Rap Lyric With N-Word In It

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.

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.
