I was actually looking for serious answers. I've heard the funny jokes, but just wondering if there has been a team with 8 or more white dudes. The other precedent is that the Wolves improved while doing it, which is also a weird thing.

I mean, with Europe catching up at such a high rate, while this is weird, it's not like the Wolves have a ton of white Americans on the roster, they probably have about average. But when you add in 2 Russians, 1 Spaniard, 1 Puerto Rican, 1 Montenegrian, who all look white, it does become very white.

I really don't see the big deal at all. I could care less if they are green if they are an upgrade, which the Wolves have obviously made this summer.

We can rule out the Twolves for any players racial profiling incidents this year.

I could see a starting lineup of:

C: Pecovic
PF: Love
SF: AK
SG: Chase
PG: Rubio

It's not the color that make a team great. It's the players so before your start judging by the color...open your eyes wide enough and look at their skills.

WHy is it such a big deal if they have a lot of white players? My favorite team is all black players, try to guess what that team is.

They'll be a exciting team to watch. Nearly everyone on the roster has passing skills so other teams will have to watch out for that.

Agree with you 100%. Rubio will improve his shooting.

It is kind of funny, and seems kind of weird for what is going on with my favorite team, but the Wolves are going after good players, and team needs...and the players who they are getting, just happen to be white. There is no intent on going after white players, they are just going after players.

A couple examples, they were looking for an energetic backup big. They wanted Jordan Hill, but had to settle for Stiemsma.
They wanted a do it all SF, they wanted Batum, but had to settle for AK.

That's what Adelman wants.

you really believe a team with the lineup the Wolves have will suck? I mean, they won't be competing for a top 3 seed, but I don't see anyway they don't make the playoffs...keep in mind too, that they held a playoff spot late into the season before Rubio went out. Now, they have gotten more talent on the team, and got rid of statistically the worst starter in the league (Wes Johnson).

If it was the other way around, it would not be a unique situation. Basketball is dominated by black athletes, having a team that may have a starting 5 of all white players is a unique situation in this sport.

If a hockey team for example had a team consisting of many black players, that would be a unique situation, and people would be talking about it.

It just seems a lil strange to me with the league dominated by African Americans. I honestly think this is Adelman's doing. He likes players with alot of skill sets; that so happen to be mostly euro players.

AND Michael Beasley. The whole team improves both offensively and defensively by losing those two.

absolutely.
It is also kind of strange how Adelman and Kahn contradict each other. As you stated, Adelman is all about the skill set, where Kahn was/is all about the athleticism.

Before Adelman came, you saw Kahn going after all sorts of players who "looked" the part...long athletic types, such as Wesley Johnson, Anthony Randolph, Darko Milicic, etc...now with Adelman, those playershave been replaced with the likes of AK, Pekovic, and Schved.

absolutely on Beasley. I do feel like Beasley can still be an efficient player in the NBA, but it was not going to be on the Wolves, and for both the Wolves, and him to improve, he needed to go.

Make sure to not say anything degrading about someone's race or religion, but go ahead with the slurs on sexual orientation.

These type of racial threads haven't worked in the past and they clearly aren't working now. Please do not create threads like this. Like others have said, have you had said black instead of white then there would be an out-lash.
