In sporting news, some 42 years later and some $240 million dollars richer, former American Basketball Association owners Ozzie and Dan Silna have been the beneficiaries of the growth of the National Basketball Association, particularly in dealing with TV revenue.  In 1976, Ozzie and Dan agreed to fold their team so the NBA can move forward with a merger with the ABA and the Indiana Pacers, the now Brooklyn Nets, Denver Nuggets and the San Antonio Spurs agreed to pay the pair a portion of the TV revenue earned starting in 1980, as they were the teams that survived the merger.  However, the brothers think they have gotten the short end of the stick since they feel the league has omitted them from international broadcasts and cable packages and have asked a judge to re-open the anti-trust case.
