Yup its our Richardson

Jason Richardson wants to keep wearing his chains, and the Golden State Warriors guard believes the NBA's new dress code takes aim at black players in the league.

Ugh, God, why do they all pull the race card?!? (when I say "they", I mean players, not African-Americans. Don't bash me).

Its OK. Its OK. Its OK. We'll all forget about this once Jrich does a wind-mill.

It's not gonna sway my opinion about him as a player, but I thought he was above opening his mouth about something so small...

I won't be surprised if some of the players get together and go on strike over this! Sad but probably will be true eventually

I dunno about strike, but I know they'll fight it somehow. I'd say speaking out, or mailing the powers that be of the NBA, or even threatening to quit (if it gets bad and bloody), but I dunno if they'd actually go through with striking.
