(WSCR) If there’s a proverbial line in column writing, consider New York Post columnist Phil Mushnick miles past it.

As Mushnick wrote about the New Jersey Nets and their new partial owner Jay Z, who recently decided to change the team colors to black and white, Mushnick made a suggestions as to what the Nets should change their name to.

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!

When questioned about his comments, Mushnick said the following: “Such obvious, wishful and ignorant mischaracterizations of what I write are common. I don’t call black men the N-word; I don’t regard young women as bitches and whores; I don’t glorify the use of assault weapons and drugs. Jay-Z, on the other hand…..Is he the only NBA owner allowed to call black men N—ers?”
