First off, I really hope no body views this as a racist thread, if anyone does please close it. I just thought it was a good idea.

Almost all of the NBA is Black/European players. Very few are white-american. I dont have a problem with this at all because the black/european players playing in the league are great athletes.

With the few white guys in the league whenever they play i always root for them, because it's cool to see a white guy play on the court when he's basically the only one..i can relate.

If you had to make a team of White-American born CURRENT NBA players. What would it be? Mine:

PG: Kirk Hinrich
SG: Mike Miller
SF: Mike Dunleavy
PF: David Lee
C: Brad Miller

What is yours?

It's not racist. It kind of interesting because American born White NBA players have declined so much and have become a small part of this league.

In baseball I saw something on TV about how African Americans are declining. It is mostly Whites and Hispanics.

There are people out there trying to change these things, but you can really try and do that because everything is based on talent.

I'm hoping that this doesn't mean their skill has declined. The NBA is now a league based on athleticism. Based on talent is total garbage. If two players have the exact same game, but one is more naturally gifted with height and strenght and hops, that player will get the call. Whites are generally less athletic, which cause them to be at a disadvantage in basketball. Some of these athletic specimens in the league are unbelievable, LeBron James is the perfect example. I don't want to go any further becuase I am going to be considered racist, but its the truth.

But i do remeber reading that blacks are more athletic then whites. Blacks contain more "fast twitch fibers" then whites do, making them stronger.

You hit some of it on the head. I have a story about 7th graders. We have a pretty sharp travel team, all white suburban boys. We are top three in a loose league of 18 teams - mostly all white. We have tough practices, we have two real gifted kids. Probably top 5-6 in the league. We got invited to go play a team in Worcester that happened to be mostly minorities. We got smoked. It was 10 minutes in and it was 26-6. Once we got adjusted to the speed of the game, we were able to cut into the lead, and lose at a "respectable" 64-49. The lasting image will be of a really chubby guard they had, that kept stealing the ball off of my best guys - over and over. I'm like - pass guys, and the passing lanes were full of the other guys.

After talking to the coach, I can tell you this. They play about 4 times as much as we do. I could see for myself the speed and agressiveness that they played with. We went on a win steak because they knew they were not going to face a team this good the rest of the year.

In the late 60's and early 70's the idea of the game was still dominated by the Celtic style. Defense, passing, fast breaks, team work, layups. By the early 80's "street ball" was much more common, the 3 put another big hole in what was before. Come to today, the weakest pre college ball is in the NE, predominatly rich and white. The strongest ball near here is Hartford, Boston, Worcester, Springfield, Fall River, and other urban areas where it isn't so rich or so white.

It doesn't take a great athlete to make a lay-up, throw an outlet, put the ball on the ground, but it does when you compete with people that can do these things, and defend these things at lightening quick speed.

The differences are growing, not shrinking, and white suburbanites will never own the game as much as they did before the mid 60's.

Kidd-Dunleavy-Buddinger-Love-Kaman

Other contenders: Hinrich,Ridnour, Korver, Lee, Blake, Miller, Reddick, Jason Williams

As for the athleticism thing and on a more sobering note, you have to consider the institution of slavery and how it both intentionally and unintentionally bred blacks to be stronger, more efficient and durable workers. Some were forced into marriages based on the physical attributes and others' genetic lines continued solely because their bodies (as well as minds and spirits) were able to endure the harsh conditions and abuses of slavery.

Yea I play HS ball in this Region(New England)in New London and we play a lot of teams filled with white kids and they are always easy games. They'll have 1 OK white or sometimes 1 really good one but the rest always are terrible. We always win easy even when our second team plays. Our team is currently playing in the Championship on Saturday at the Mohegan Sun.

It's obvious that great, white, American born players are a minority in the NBA. And you know what, who cares? The sport is great because of all the talented players, from all backgrounds and ethnicities. As long as you play the game hard and fair you should be given whatever kudos come your way.

Long gone are the days when White American players were any good. Look at the decline in talent over the last 20 years. Imagine the NBA in 2020, there might be 5 white players and all of the will be 7'1 back up centers.

Outside the Lines did a bit on this a few months ago. They were focusing it around Kyle Mcalarney who seemed to be under the impression that he wasn't getting enough attention because of his skin color. OTL investigated a little deeper, and it seem that whites are overlooked quite frequently, even when the people involved all perform the same (speed, height etc.) and come from similar background (college/HS). NBA scouts and organizations are basically scared of Caucasian-Americans for the most part, and I don't blame them.

I don't think it's discrimination at all...but the moral of the story was that Caucasian-American basketball players are a dying breed.

I actually was going to post something very similar to this but I didn't realize that outside the lines did a story on it.

My opinion on the matter is that in America lower level coaches (junior high through high school) are really pretty awful and the general consensus is to just win games and not develop fundamentals and teach basketball. So you go to a random organized game with 12-18 year olds and all you see for the most part is full court presses. Because kids at a young age have a very difficult time breaking the press. So what you get is all the best athletes playing the whole game in order to have the best full court press possible. It is the easiest way to win at that level. So the white kids who tend to develop physically more slowly get stuck on the bench from a young age and because of how terrible the coaching is they never really develop. But in europe they play a much slower game and focus more on fundamentals and skills. So those white kids get the opportunity to be important players on their team and develop properly.

How can a thread about a fact be racist? If people start writing racist comments, it could be a problem, but people unlike earlier attempts are trying to be fair.

There are not many people with Asian backgrounds playing basketball.

There are few non blacks playing CB in the NFL.

It's not racist to notice, ask why, and discuss.

seriously, think about it. Only 1 black QB has won a SB, and the top 10 qbs now are all white(mcnabb is my 11th best), while the best RBs and WRs are black. makes you think...

too true man. too bad jamarcus russell and michael vick **** themselves over. they definitely had potential to be top 5 physically.

First off, I really hope no body views this as a racist thread, if anyone does please close it. I just thought it was a good idea.

Almost all of the NBA is Black/European players. Very few are white-american. I dont have a problem with this at all because the black/european players playing in the league are great athletes.

With the few white guys in the league whenever they play i always root for them, because it's cool to see a white guy play on the court when he's basically the only one..i can relate.

If you had to make a team of White-American born CURRENT NBA players. What would it be? Mine:

PG: Kirk Hinrich
SG: Mike Miller
SF: Mike Dunleavy
PF: David Lee
C: Brad Miller

What is yours?

With Tyler Hansborough as the 6th man... Nuff said.

Best hockey line of African American Players
Best American Soccer Players
Best Asian Football Players
Best Mexican Speedskater

While I am sure that gentics have something to do with this phenemonen, one has to also consider that sociology and culture weigh heavily on how athletes are drawn to one sport or another.

I agree 100%. I think Hawes is better than Brad Miller right now.

C--Kaman
PF-Lee
SF--Murphy/Dunleavy
SG--Miller
PG--Ridnour

Ridnour has had a great season thus far, much better than Hinrich and Blake. Even though he's a backup he's shooting much better and is averaging a decent amount of assists per 36. If you wanted defense here I could see Hinrich but that is the only case for him imo.

I like Murphy a lot and feel he should be on the list somehow so I bumped him up to SF. He doesn't play there much but I think it could work out.

Everyone else, self explanatory.

that's what i always wonder....i don't know much about foreigh high school hoops but i'm pretty sure the average high schooler in europe probaby is worse than the average white high schooler in america (i mean, all races in america play bball as kids).....so why do the best white players in the world all come from other countries...i would assume more white people are playing bball in america than other countries (cause we have so people in this country)....i would assume most white high school hoopsters in this country practice with or play against more athletic bballers on a regular basis than in other countries...so why can't average white bballer overachieve to superstar levels if white foreigners growing up playing lesser competition can..i mean Steve Nash had to grow up playing some busters in Canada, right?

i don't know how steve nash got so good the ppl he played with growing up with were a joke, probably the reasonhe's such a bad defender.
