  • Allusions

    • This episode is ripped from the headlines of the brawl that broke out at an NBA game between the Indiana Pacers and Detroit Pistons in 2004.

    • During the trial Inwood's former coach testifes that the player once assaulted him at practice. This refers to the real-life infamous off-court confrontation between Knicks coach P.J. Carlisimo and player Latrell Sprewell where Sprewell got so angry at the coach that he choked him at practice.
