[NBA]Bird: Nba needs more white stars


 Share

Recommended Posts

Well, The NBA doesn't NEED more white people....just that white people just aren't as good. Simple as that.

I disagree, because he's basically asking for some sort of affirmative action for the NBA, and that is ridiculous.

Bad call. So what if the sport is dominated by black stars? thats the way it goes. Put it this way, watch the olympic games, each country has its own dominance in each sport, so what are they going to do about that?

Motorcycle racing is dominated by Spanish, Itallian (sp :s) ect, but I dont hear anyone complaining.

i hate dunking. i love it when people can nail outside shots consistently. we need more john paxsons and steve kerrs. those guys were so pure. plus bird, and mchale, they were sweet. i'm not racist or anything, but huge dudes (black or white) throwing down dunks over and over bores me to death.

Dirk, Peja, Nash, Okur, Bibby, Divac, Croshere, etc.

I think there are more white stars than when Larry Bird played, to be honest. I think Carmello said it best... I just can't find his quote on it, but look for it (I'm too lazy to :p).

In a horribly watered down time in NBA history.

so your saying magic johnson and kareem were watered down? they were one of birds greatest rivals...

I'd just prefer if these millionaires shut up and played the game and stopped cating like they are still gansta's from whatever "hood" they grew up in. It's not that there needs to be more white people, they just need to stop marketing this sport as being all ghetto and such.

Bird is just a cracker who lives in Indiana and was given the job to carry an image like MJ... same thing they did with Rosie O'Donnel, white people's version of Oprah, just like BOOG said they suck plain and simple, even the white guys that are playing now, like Luke Walton for example, weather he makes a shot or not, it's UGLY UGLY UGLY, got no style.

Loving your sig...

"Your search - "1989 NBA FINALS RESULTS" - did not match any documents.

Suggestions:

- Make sure all words are spelled correctly.

- Try different keywords.

- Try more general keywords."

So the history repeating itself will be no results? The world will explode and we won't have 2004 champs? ;)
