If you actually did take the best white players you could come up with a damn good team. Easy contenders. You are missing a lot of good white players.

Is Ginobili considered white? Because if yes, this team could win it all.

I was thinking of Ginobili. You could also have Hinrich in there. There are some other players that look white, but I really don't know their full race and I'm too lazy to look everything up.

Throw in Kirk to backup Nash. And if Dirk, Gortat, Gallo etc. count I'd say Ginobili counts.

PG: Nash / Hinrich

SG: Ginobili (born and raised in Argentina aside, dude's white. He's an Italian citizen as well and looks/has the name of an Italian. I'd be surprised if he isn't 100%. Many, many Argentinians are). J.J. Reddick to back him up.

SF: Kirilenko / Gallo (either could start, with the other being arguably the best 6th man in the league)

PF: Dirk / Love

C: Bogut / Gortat

That team could very easily contend. Top 1-3 seed in either conference with relative ease.

Actually since there is no such thing as "Race" anymore, now that we understand DNA and genetics scientifically, it should be clear that there are actually no "white" (as in, the white color of this page) players and no "black" (as in the black color of the letters) players in the NBA.

We are all Africans, we all come from Africa originally, every "african american" player surely is mixed with "caucasian", although that is actually a mislabeling as well, because very few NBA's have roots in the Caucuses region
that is between Russia and Turkey and largely comprises what is today called Armenia. Similarly, "europeans" is an imperfect term, as it is incredibly broad and encompasses many different peoples and types, and, as mentioned, we all came from Africa anyways.

The concept of "Race" is an archaic one, which stems from a time when humans didn't understand genetics and just believed that "God" created people one way or the other: he made you of this tribe, or that tribe, and that was your race, your destiny, everything. Now we understand that is all bull****. All humans share 99.999% of the same DNA, and if you tried to establish genetic criteria to distinguish population groups it is impossible because there is so much overlap across all groups.

Gasol is a good call. Dude's from Spain, but he's definitely "white" European.

Kirilenko > Turk, though.

My revised roster/definitive NBA champions over any team currently in the league:

PG: Nash

SG: Ginobili

SF: Kirilenko

PF: Nowtizki

C: Bogut

Other players in rotation: Kevin Love, Gallinari, Gortat. J.J. Reddick, Bargnani.

yojoe792
03-11-2011, 02:12 AM
Pau Gasol? Dirk? Bogut?

I think a white team would win a championship pretty easily.

PG - Nash
SG - Ginobili
SF - Gallinari
PF - Dirk
C - Pau

BE - Bogut
BE - Love
BE - Hinrich
BE - Turkoglu
BE - Others

That's a championship squad right there.

To answer the original question of the thread, if you're talking about players of primarily light-skinned european, germanic, greek, caucasian, russian or asian recent ancestory...

A team of

PG: Nash, Hinrich, Farmar
SG: Ginobili, Reddick
C: Paul Gasol, Bogut, Gortat
SF: Nowitzki, Kirilenko
PF: Love, Bargnani, Marc Gasol

Would almost certainly win the NBA title and could potentially win 70 games.

Boozer has the notable distinction of being eligible for whatever team he wants. Think about it, he was born in Germany and grew up in Alaska. That's about as white as you get. His name is "Carlos", so he has to be eligible for the latino team. However, he appears to be black so he is eligible for that team as well.

Um... am I missing something, or shouldn't kevin love be on this list?

I don't know what exactly your classifications are, but I think some of these stat categories leaders should be on the list:
Nash
Dirk
Love
Pau Gasol
Bogut
Ginobli

I think players like Kirilenko, Korver, Calderon and Galliano can be added as good role players. Seems like SF is the weakest position for this debate.

I think I would go with a starting lineup of:
Nash, Ginobli, Dirk, Love and Gasol. Dirk would end up playing the SF just out of need.

Depends on who you pick. All whites ever ? Dynasty with multiple rings, for sure.
All whites current ? Same as above.

Currently you would have:

... the Gasol brothers. Dirk. Jason Kidd, Steve Nash. Kirilenko. Are the Lopez' brothers white ? Troy Murphy off the bench. Bargnani. Calderon. Kevin Love, Andrew Bogut. Ilyasova plays solid. Omri Casspi. Manu Ginobili. Luis Scola. Yao Ming (if healthy). Chris Kaman (if healthy). JJ Redick. Kyle Korver. Jonas Jerebko. Rudy Fernandez. David Lee. Amundson as role player. Marcin Gortat. Dragic. Tiago Splitter. Belinelli. Mike Miller. Hidayet Türkoglu. Kirk Hinrich. Fields ? Gallinari. Varejao ? And ****ing Luke Walton and the Machine.

You could form something great of that list. And I'm sure I forgot some ...

Pf....Love, Lee

C.....A. Bogut, Pau Gosol, Kaman

Coach...Phil jackson, Greg pop

There is about ten other players you could argue to be on this team as well. (scola, jose, M. gosol, Barg)

Now my team could win a championship...Three sven footers on the floor all the time...three point shooting like you never seen...and all the rebounds you could ever want....an amazeing team play and passing style...

Pretty bad all white team you don't have the best player in like 3 positions.

PG: Nash, Beno Udrih
SG: Ginobili (yes he is white), Kirk Hinrich (I know he's typically a PG, but he's 6-4 he can play SG)
SF: Gallo (weakest position), Kirilenko
PF: Dirk, Kevin Love
C: Pau Gasol (I know he is typically a PF, but he can play center), Bogut, Marc Gasol, Chris Kaman

Racially, Manu is white.

+1
The Spanish, Italian and the French make up almost 85% of their population of which Manu belongs to (Italian).

I kind of find it perplexing that some users on this forum are segregating American "whites" and European "whites". They're all Caucasian.

American white athletes must be inferior basketball players then there European counterparts. Why is that? these lists look very European to me.

European coaches focus on Fundamentals, passing, shooting, iq.

American h.s and Ncaa coaches focus on Athleticism, strenght Jumping.


Whites cant match Black players phisics, so they need to work a ton on their Fundamentals and skills to be able to compete at nba level.

I think maybe Ncaa coacehs are focusing more nowdays in providing the leageu with what the league wants wich is Atheltic players and that is a problem for White american taletned plaeyrs because they dont get to develop the skills they need.

Honestly if a iwas an american dad of a white son with tons of basketball potential i would send him Europe to develop his game instead of H.S and Ncaaa

over half of the guys on these lists are not even caucasian. Since when is a latino, spaniard (ie gasol bros, hedo, peja, scola) or mixed (i.e. farmar, griffin) or any other of the guys mentioned considered white because their skin color is not BLACK!

This thread should be retitled "HOW FAR WOULD A TEAM WITHOUT ANY BLACK GUYS GO"

Fact: The U.S. Office of Management and Budget currently defines "Hispanic or Latino" as "a person of Mexican, Puerto Rican, Cuban, South or Central American, or other Spanish culture or origin, regardless of race".

Now draw your own conclusion/opinion of consideration for either Gasol brother (or any Spaniard in the NBA).

Spaniards are Caucasian, as are Italians and Turks. People from Argentina and Chile, particularly the light-skinned/white looking ones are usually of Spanish or Italian ethnicity since they moved and settled there. They are not "Latino" as generally Latinos are mixed between natives, blacks and Spaniards from after they settled/invaded and intermixed the population.

Mike Miller at SF? No no, Kirilenko or Gallinari would start. Miller doesn't make the team.

Love and Z starting centers? They'd get abused. From your roster, Pau is the clear choice at Center - but I'm taking Bogut to start with and either running Pau at PF with Dirk at SF - or just have Dirk be the 30 mpg assassin off the bench.

over half of the guys on these lists are not even caucasian. Since when is a latino, spaniard (ie gasol bros, hedo, peja, scola) or mixed (i.e. farmar, griffin) or any other of the guys mentioned considered white because their skin color is not BLACK!

This thread should be retitled "HOW FAR WOULD A TEAM WITHOUT ANY BLACK GUYS GO"

The problem is your wrong as well, Hedo is not a spaniard neither is peja or scola.

Luis Alberto Scola Balvoa (born April 30, 1980 in Buenos Aires) is an Argentine professional basketball player.

Hidayet "Hedo" Türkoğlu ([ˈhedo ˈtyɾkoːɫu]; born March 19, 1979 in Gaziosmanpaşa, İstanbul, Turkey) is a Turkish professional basketball player in the NBA currently playing for the Orlando Magic.

Predrag Stojaković (Serbian: Предраг Стојаковић, Serbo-Croatian pronunciation: [shpɛdʑa stɔjakɔʋitɕ]) (born June 9, 1977), also known by his nickname Peja, is a Serbian professional basketball player who plays for the Dallas Mavericks of the National Basketball Association (NBA).

All taken from wiki, keep discussion on point. I wont go further as to why.


What about the All NBA Ugly team?

Morrison/Dunleavy

manu is from argentina....how is anyone from south america or south of the border white???

:facepalm: how ignorant can you be?

85% of the Argentinean population is Caucasian. They were a staunch supporter of the Nazis and hid/protected their top members when Nazi Germany was on the verge of collapse. In fact, they've been criticized for being racist because of their apartheid views/laws. As a result, these laws attributed to them being "pure" caucasian as they didn't "mix" with the locals, so to speak.

Well, there was a strong presence of the Catholic Church in South America, and since most Germans and Nazis were Catholic or Lutheran, and the Nazis had various agreements with the Catholic Church, after the war many Nazis were relocated to South America, protected and given new identities and positions of authority in the government and military there.

However Argentina and South America is a melting pot--middle easterners, spaniards, portuguese, russians, asians -- everyone you name it.

Also, "caucasian" is a misused term... it refers to people of ancestry from the caucusus region between Turkey and Russia, which is appx modern day Armenia. So when you say "I'm caucasian" you're kind of saying you are of Armenian origin (which may be true, I don't know. And nothing wrong with that of course).

as I pointed out earlier, we all come from Africa therefore we are all Africans.

Actually, Juan Peron was a staunch supporter of the Nazi's and protected them under his rule. His wife Eva facilitated their arrival to Argentina. The ideology behind several of their legislative laws is appalling(Article 25) and their racial discrimination throughout history is apalling...I mean one of their chants during soccer games (in modern times) against their neighbouring countries includes chanting:

"*** negroes from Bolivia and Paraguay"

The world Caucasian is a polysemic word.
It is used in anthropology to mean:

"Of a human racial classification; pertaining to people having certain phenotypical features such as straight or wavy hair and very light to brown pigmented skin, and originating from Europe, parts of Northern Africa and Western, Central and South Asia."

So my usage was perfectly fine.

And to say we're all "African" is wrong. We have gone through so many evolutionary changes since then that to lump the current human race with Neanderthals is just illogical.

There isn't. Professionals and geneticists speak in terms of "population groups", however the fact is that there is only very, very slight genetic difference between all humans. And we are all classified scientifically as "African apes" or "great apes" if you want to get technical about it. "Race" as a concept has to do with the idea of god-created types of people, which is an archaic concept that was long ago discredited.


From wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Race_(classification_of_humans)

While scientists use the concept of race to make practical distinctions among fuzzy sets of traits, the scientific community feels that the idea of race is often used by the general public[6] in a naive[7] or simplistic way, erroneously designating wholly discrete types of individuals. Among humans, race has no cladistic significance—all people belong to the same hominid subspecies, Homo sapiens sapiens.[8][9] Regardless of the extent to which race exists, the word "race" is problematic and may carry negative connotations.[10] Social conceptions and groupings of races vary over time, involving folk taxonomies[11][12][13] that define essential types of individuals based on perceived sets of traits. Scientists consider biological essentialism obsolete,[14] and generally discourage racial explanations for collective differentiation in both physical and behavioral traits.[7][15]

:rolleyes: Perhaps you should verify this info by checking the sources at the bottom of the page

"Scientists have long suspected that the racial categories recognized by society are not reflected on the genetic level.

But the more closely that researchers examine the human genome -- the complement of genetic material encased in the heart of almost every cell of the body -- the more most of them are convinced that the standard labels used to distinguish people by "race" have little or no biological meaning.

They say that while it may seem easy to tell at a glance whether a person is Caucasian, African or Asian, the ease dissolves when one probes beneath surface characteristics and scans the genome for DNA hallmarks of "race."

As it turns out, scientists say, the human species is so evolutionarily young, and its migratory patterns so wide, restless and rococo, that it has simply not had a chance to divide itself into separate biological groups or "races" in any but the most superficial ways. "

The Spanish, Italian and the French make up almost 85% of their population of which Manu belongs to (Italian).

Very true. Thats how I feel to me to just call everybody that has white skin white does a disservice to a lot of different heritages and cultures. Im pretty sure Gasol or Yao Ming wouldn't like it if someone said they where "white."

A lot of black people that have white and black parents for example would be really upset if someone said they where white or even half white. If goes back to the old Jim Crow laws with the "one drop rule" where they basically said if you had one drop of black blood in you, you were officially black in order to keep blacks from voting and having property etc.. Until that time a lot of lighter blacks were passing for whites so whether you claimed it or not was a really big deal and a matter of pride. To alot of folks they still carry on that feeling to this day.

Then again some feel just the opposite way. Is either way wrong? Maybe by the technical according to encylopedia answer I gues but sometimes you have to think bigger than that.....

I assume your italian side is Caucasian,.

so its all left to what kind of mexican your parent is.

If it is a mexican descendant from spanish conquerors ( Luis miguel like) then its caucasian wich would make you WHITE.

If on the other side its Mexican as in Descendant of NATIVE AMERICANS ( lou diamond philips like) then you would be 50% white and 50% Native american thus MIXED , Like i am since my parents are one caucasian form spain and one native american from venezuela.

Not to sound like and *** butwanted to hear from you guys and how far you think an all white nba team would go

Note: this is for observation and a totally non racest thread

My team would look like this

Pg: nash, grojic
Sg: ridinour, ?
Sf: gallo, turk, peja
Pf: love, bargnini
C: gortat, mozgov, darko

I say 8th in the east
10th in the west

Thoughts?

What is this, some kind of reverse racism thread....?? :clap:

Well I don't think you can put a color on being a great basketball player. There are many great players in NBA of all colors. That being said, I believe that the Europeans as a whole are really catching up to us. All we do is play AAU ball, dunk and shoot the 3. Europeans work on everything.... Thats why their bigs can pass, shoot, run the floor, etc. That's why their guards are so well rounded. Most of them have very few weaknesses....

WTF?? :confused: How can anybody not consider Dirk Nowitzki and his blond hair and blue eyes white just because he's not American? Or Ginobili, or Gasol.....

So.... Tim Duncan is not black? Tony Parker? Michael Petrius? Going back, how about Hakeem Olajuwon? Not black? :facepalm: You all are overthinking it.

why are they not white when they are just as much white as they are black?

That makes sense. But its just the way it is. Once you have the brotha in you, youre a brotha.

I guess once you arent just white, you arent a "white guy."

because our society cant change something thats been going on for 700 years..think about it back in the south in the 50's or 60's...if you had a mixed child, black and white...how do you think that person is going to be viewed and treated based on his color in that time..they certainly arent going to let this kid use the white bathrooms...being black wipes out the white in you ..thats just how it is..and how we've all been programed to think since the civil war...

They would not make the playoffs at all they are not atlehtic enough to compete in the NBA. Just think about it how many stars in the NBA are white and the best at their position or top 7

My all white team:
Stockton
West
Bird
Love
Bill Walton

And they would be DESTROYED by my all black team:
Magic
Dumars
LBJ
Duncan
Russell

no MJ, really

12 man roster
PG: Steve Nash, Jason Kidd, Jason Williams
SG: Manu Ginobili, JJ Reddick
SF: Danilo Gallinari, Kyle Korver, Mike Miller
PF: Dirk Nowitski, Andrea Barngani
C: Chris Kaman, Marcin Gortat

they could certainly do some damage

You're right. Team USA definitely didn't have a hard time against Argentina or Spain in the Olympics. BTW, all of these guys ARE in the NBA so they are athletic enough. Are we forgetting those back to back MVPs Steve Nash got? Or Dirk Nowitzki and his MVP?

get off ur high horse... this is the same thing as classifying people by their nationality... or picking teams base off of what color shirt some1 is wearing... theres nothing sad or weird about this thread... you know whats sad the people who go out of their way to say stuff like this on the internet... ooo cool ur such a humanitarian and such a great person:rolleyes:. if people were really not racist theyd be able to have this conversation with out it being a big deal at all...

:facepalm: Yeah, bash someone for being a progressive thinker.
