How the Brooklyn Nets Are Honoring B.I.G.

We’re seriously considering trying to join the Brooklyn Nets just to don their new jerseys. In case you haven’t heard, the team is honoring the Notorious B.I.G. with a set of jerseys inspired by his classic Coogi sweater. No, they won’t be rocking knit jerseys, but the uniforms do boast a red, yellow, blue and black trim reminiscent of the pattern on Biggie’s sweater—and they look pretty damn good.

What do you think? Would you rock?

This Is Why Megyn Kelly Still Wins.

Sure, Megyn Kelly got fired from NBC after her blackface comments, but she still walks away with the remaining $69 million promised to her in her contract.

TMZ reports:

“Sources familiar with the negotiations tell TMZ … Megyn’s deal is 3 years firm, and she has around 1 year and 10 months to go. We’re told her lawyer, Bryan Freedman, is going to have a call with NBC brass tomorrow and demand the network pay her full remaining salary, or face a lawsuit.”

Freedman and Kelly also plan to argue that she was treated “unfairly” after allegedly being targeted for her comments about Matt Lauer, a favorite around the NBC headquarters.

Must be qwhite nice.
