Nets Call Mushnick Column "Offensive and Inappropriate"

The Nets issued a statement late Friday on Phil Mushnick's column that suggested the team should be renamed the "New York N____'s" if they really wanted to go with the "full Jay-Z treatment."

The statement reads, "We find the story offensive and inappropriate, and it doesn't deserve further comment."

In a tweet from his account, Anthony Morrow wrote, "This Clown is a Racist Bigot, this type of animosity is ridiculous and he should be fired."
