White people are greedy. They already have a league all to themselves, it's called the National Hockey League.

All those people who said Darko Milicic couldn't win an MVP award are about to be proven wrong!

Besides what appears to be a "culturally frustrated" (read racist) inspiration to the start of this league, the idea is interesting. If a white guy can't break into the Majors, just start a white guy league. Kind of like the negro leagues back in the day, eh? A a female league?

Yeah, because they couldn't "break into" the Majors for the same reasons, right?

Give them whole milk instead of apple juice in
their baby bottles.

And let the youngsters play!!!!!

ok i'll finally bite...

i'm involved in basketball on a high level... played in college, coach in high school, run camps in the summer. this guy's idea is offensive to me on so many levels that it's infuriating.

#1... yes, there is a problem with a lack of fundamental skills in today's american basketball player. this problem is rooted in a poor grassroots system that is spawned from the overall feeling of entitlement that many in america's youth feel today, be they black, white or green. it has nothing to do with race whatsoever.

#2... the broad based assumption and myth that the color of one's skin makes you better or worse than somebody else. one's ability to play basketball has nothing to do with wether or not they are black or white, despite the popular myth.

basketball is popular with kids in low income situations because it is one of the cheapest sports to play. all you need is a ball and a hoop and you can work on your skill. if you have a friend, you can compete. you can not do this in football, baseball, soccer, hockey, etc. etc. etc. it is unique to the sport.

it's not a race thing... it's an income thing. the state of indiana became huge with basketball because the low income rural farm kids, mostly white mind you, could easily afford to play it. again... ball, basket. that's it.

a simple look at the history of basketball shows that it's always been a sport dominated by the poor, the down trodden... polish imigrants, jewish imigrants after ww2, farm boys from french lick, indiana...

shit... the logo of the NBA it's self...



is modeled after Jerry West...



... is the son of a poor coal miner from west virginia, who's only way out was with a ball and a hoop. it's the identical story of the black kid from the inner city. the american story.

so yea... this guy can suck it.


oh, and hewson? i can still dunk on a regulation rim, 30 pounds overweight from my playing days. so neener neener neener
