If a mod thinks this will be trouble go ahead and lock the thread but please don't delete it. I came across it and thought it was an interesting article, perhaps too deep of a topic for PSD but insightful none the less.

mmm it would be curious to compare that fact with the demographic of psd bsketball Fans.


Wich makes me thinj how does that numbers regard mixed players?

for example Kidd or Battier do they cont as black descent or white european descent?


How does Ginobili count? as Latin descent or Euro Descent?

The messed up thing about Cenus is that it takes absolutely EVERYTHING in account. Even if your right nut has a slightly larger circumference than your left nut.

since blacks are minority, it gets put into there i think

Manu is latin since he's from Argentina.
it doesnt matter where his family is originally from if it is in Europe.

It's not as Black and White as that. Every detail is accounted for.
