I don't follow basketball at all, so when I heard that Renardo Sidney was going to Mississippi State I had no context for why this was considered headline news. I still don't, and don't really care to find out. Sounds like there are some unresolved money issues, whatever. What did catch my eye was the following:
...stepfather Renardo Sr. directed a club basketball team with financial backing that was unclear beyond a relatively modest shoe company sponsorship.
Stepfather Renardo Sr. Other news stories list the son as Renardo Sidney Jr. So, how the hell does a stepfather end up with a same name Jr./Sr. arrangement?? If he's a stepfather, he's not the kid's biological father and therefore theoretically wasn't around when Jr. was born and named. Did the son change his name? Did the stepfather change his name? Does mom just really really like the name Renardo? I could keep coming up with scenarios, but they just get stranger. If anybody can answer this, please do. I'm dying to know the story.
