Sportswriter Uses Notorious B.I.G. Lyric Containing N-Word To Comment On LeBron James-Knicks Scuffle

A former New York Post NBA columnist received backlash on social media after using a Notorious B.I.G. lyric that contained the N-word to comment on a scuffle that took place during the Knicks and Cavaliers game at Madison Square Garden Monday night.

In the first quarter of the game LeBron James and Frank Ntilikina found themselves in a scuffle, with Enes Kanter coming to Ntilikina’s defense and placing himself between the two fellow basketball players.

Former NBA columnist Peter Vecsey spoke on the moment on Twitter, writing:

“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.”

Vecsey was nearly quoting a B.I.G. line from “Ni**as Bleed,” with the line going “Picture me being scared of a ni**a that breathe the same air as me.”

Needless to say, the tweet did not go over well on social media, with a number of users calling him out for the remark.

Rather than apologize, Vecsey responded to one user with “Your problem, not mine,” before tweeting out this predictable remark whenever a white person faces backlash for using the N-word: “So white people cant quote rap lyrics?!?! Cant sing them?!?! Bull s**t!!”

The Cavaliers ended up winning against the Knicks with 104-101.
