Danny Ainge, Jerry Colangelo vs. the White-Washing of the NBA

As any NBA fan would know, both Danny Ainge and Jerry Colangelo took paramount steps toward the fastest way to a championship when using today's professional stars.  They both won championships this year by not allowing so much as one, single, solitary Caucasoid player onto the court during their respective team's championship run. 

That is very significant, considering David Stern's post-Pistons/Pacers Brawl objective for the NBA.  It features a comprehensive and vehement effort to rid the league of its nearly 30-year-old "inner-city image" and theme, in favor of that which caters more to Caucasoid's suburbia. 

Even more significantly peculiar about this veracity, is how Black players are the ones who incur the crux of any unfair, unjustified, or racist scrutiny that we witness worldwide. 

Meanwhile, it is those Caucasian players who usually exist as any team's dead-weight liabilities of minimal contributions, while still raking in multi-millions of dollars.  This concept almost seems to have stimulated the recent Wall Street hoodwinkings at the center of the housing crisis (smile).

As a matter of fact—minus Larry Bird—us fans have to go back 30 or more years, I repeat, 30 or more years to find the most recent Caucasoid players able to consistently lead their teams to championships!

This fact should garner some serious consideration for you fans who unfairly scrutinize Black players.  For that next time your city (or team) gains a Larry A. O' Trophy for you to celebrate.

However, it is very unlikely we will see such fairness, especially as the league continues to "white-wash" itself by purging its inner-city image.  We can easily see that in Stern's rule changes, which cater to the slower, less athletic player on the NBA hardwood:

•disallowing the "killa" cross-over dribble

•allowing defenders to "flop" to draw offensive fouls

•incorporating zone defenses

•focusing technical foul calls on aggressive players who challenge refs

These are just a few goodies that Stern has gleefully incorporated into the NBA game for catering to the slower, less athletic players whom he apparently hopes will become more effective toward on-court success for NBA orgs.

Still, you have to feel great about the reality of Danny Ainge and Jerry Colangelo using this year to show. It's just not worth buying into that strategy.
