    Is it racism for a NBA team(T'Wolves) to only have white players?

    Not sure if anyone else has noticed this but the Minnesota Timberwolves have been putting together a team almost exclusively of caucasian players.

    Of a league that is less than 20% caucasian, Minnesota would now have 11 caucasian players of a possible 15 man team with only 3 African-Americans on guaranteed contracts.

    With the news that they have now re-acquired Brad Miller and close to signing Andrei Kirilenko this is now starting to seem more of a gimmick for David Kahn to bring attention to his team.

    Is this reverse racism or do you think its funny?

    how is this not pure coincidence?

    Btw, they would have 2 Russians, 1 Spaniard, 1 Montenegran, and 1 Puerto Rican player on the roster.

    If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.

    It is weird I guess, cuz it's not like throwing a team of all white guys together has ever been a winning formula. But at the same time I could see how no black NBA player would want to go to Minny anyways.

    Do any of them not deserve to be on the team? And many of them are a stretch to just call "white".

    So when did their nationality change the fact that they are caucasian?

    Are you serious? You think this was "mapped out" to acquire only white players? Jesus Christ.

    Because it is absolutely weird that Minnesota mapped out its offseason with the idea that the only upgrades they needed were caucasian players outside of maybe Brandon Roy.

    You don't think that this is a marketing gimmick by David Kahn?

    He just traded Wes Johnson(2010 #4 pick) + a first rounder for Brad Miller.
