    Basketball league for white Americans targets Augusta 011910 - The Augusta Chronicle

    “There’s nothing hatred about what we’re doing,” he said. “I don’t hate anyone of color. But people of white, American-born citizens are in the minority now. Here’s a league for white players to play fundamental basketball, which they like.” [...]

    He pointed out recent incidents in the NBA, including Gilbert Arenas’ indefinite suspension after bringing guns into the Washington Wizards locker room, as examples of fans’ dissatisfaction with the way current professional sports are run.

    “Would you want to go to the game and worry about a player flipping you off or attacking you in the stands or grabbing their crotch?” he said. “That’s the culture today, and in a free country we should have the right to move ourselves in a better direction.”





    Ummmmm.....Where do I begin?



    This is a fukcing disgrace...
    This team already exists, its called the Washington Generals
    This league already exists, its called the WNBA

    we can go on and on....

    Yay. 1940's Basketball. Will there be a set shot contest at the all-star game. Do you have to shoot free throws underhanded?

    This might be the dumbest ideas ever!

    Its actually funny, this dude has no real sense of history. The NBA was a failing league. The game changed when Magic and Bird came into it and brought about some showtime, and rivalries. The league wasnt doing so well with 'Fundimentals'. Dr. J was tearing it up in the ABA, but the NBA needed the show of magic and the tenacity of bird.

    Then came a guy named Michael Jordin....Jordan...Jordash?....

    I forget his name, but the NBA hasn't been the same since...Last time I checks, more peeps come to see Lebron James than Scalabrine (Not me...I love SCAL...but most peeps)

    We need White Affirmative Action for the NBA; that would fix the problem.

    Reminds me of when I was a kid, they used to have the Eastern States Catholic Invitational Tournament (ESCIT).. catholic schools from the east coast.. Boston, NYC, DC and of course my alma mater, De La Salle in Newport..

    Basketball was frought with two handed set shots, underhanded free throws.. and lilly white ( most blacks played football, did not play basketball then for some reason)... then Power Memorial came in for the tournament, and they had a kid named Lew Alcindor.. the way I viewed basketball changed forever.. he was a man amongst little boys.

    It's their choice, good for them! You can have a club right now, only for women and a club only for blacks, why can't you have a club for just whites?

    Its like BET, I want to make WET but that's what NBC and Fox are for:p

    Re: New basketball league open to whites only, to get away from the ‘street-ball’ pla

    All things being equal, many people have made those same points over the years. I remember one point being after the Lisa Olsen incident, where some openly asked why it's ok for female reporters to be in male locker rooms, but not ok for male reporters, to be in a female locker room. I'm not sure if that is still the case, but it was back then.

    As for this specific basketball league, who cares. I wouldn't go watch it. Oh, and while I obviously couldn't say it with any certainty, I'd venture to guess that the style of play isn't the only thing that bothers the creator. Still though, he's free to be a dope if he wants to.

    Yup, I wish I could have posted that, it's exactly what I was thinking.

    Now when Patters gets home he will close this thread.

    Darryl Dawkins has some interesting thoughts on the game. Remember the US olympic team, loaded with NBA stars, lost in 2004. That was a wake-up call.

    I'm not interested in any organization that practices invidious racial favoritism, from this league to Harvard University's admissions office. Judge on talent alone. Accidents of birth? Accidents.

    "mommy"
    "yes dear"
    "why is that man smashing his face into that fence"
    "he's trying to jump over it dear"
    "how come he can't mom"
    "he's white"
    "oh"

    There can only be two serious sane answers to this move by this guy who wants to create an all white Basketball League.

    1 They love the game and the only way they can win a game is to play against another white team.

    2 They're Racist.
