To appease the racist mindset of the NBA's White Corporate Sponsors and White Fan base who see "N*gger" when they see "Hip Hop".
It's not that hard to see...
Considering that the overwhelming number of fans who go to NBA games are white, while they may see N*ggers, that is certainly not stopping them from spending their money on the game. Reigning in the hip hop image would make sense if it threatens the bottom line which any business would do with a disruptive element if it effects business.
If the league does anything to appease the white mindset it would be to develop and bring into the league more of the European league players (white) as a counterbalance to what as overwhelming being a mostly black league.
