Last week, we touched on the Indiana Pacers’, and more specifically Larry Bird’s affinity for an endangered species – the caucasian American professional basketball player.
A month ago, Bird drafted North Carolina’s Tyler Hansbrough to bring the team’s white count to a league-leading six. (Jeff Foster,
Troy Murphy, Travis Diener, Josh McRoberts, and Mike Dunleavy are the
others.) What’s more impressive than the Pacers putting together a team
resembling the first continental Congress is the fact they’ve stocked their squad with non-European vanilla.
It can only be a strange coincidence that the greatest white player in the history of the NBA has assembled a team containing more white players than any other in the league. Right?
I was struck by two things reading this post; the fact the Pacers are loaded with white guys, and the author is a very funny writer. Here's more:
To his credit, Bird did sign former Denver Nugget Dahntay Jones this offseason. But Dahntay went to Duke, so he might as well be white.
In other news, Marc Spears says the Suns are giving Steve Nash a 3 year, $22 million extension.
