Here's the background:

Not sure how much, if any, resonance this will have with the nation as a whole. I live in Oklahoma but about 20 miles from the Arkansas border so this has been all the rage lately.

In a nutshell, at least my understanding, Richardson is suing the University of Arkansas, alleging that he was fired because he was black and outspoken and that there was an "unlevel playing field" among the coaches at the U of A.

If the university wins this case, I suppose it just goes away. But if Richardson proves the university acted in a racist manor, are the floodgates opened??? Could this set a major precedence??

They've gotta go with Brooklyn - it would ensure a rabid following amongst Brooklynites, and to call them the New York Nets would doom them to forever being "that other New York team". Plus, (and maybe this is just the former Brooklynite in me)...
