too black to ball

Apparently in the south,particularly Georgia there is a brand new basketball league starting up. A league dedicated to good old fashioned fundamental basketball,sportsmanship and not letting negroes or anyone else that isnt white and american play in their league. thats right its an all white basketball league. Basically the only requirements for the league is to be white. in fact here's a direct quote from founder Don "Moose" Lewis "Only players that are natural born United States citizens with both parents of Caucasian race are eligible to play in the league." now,as shocking as the thought of an all white league may sound now......the NBA was almost all white until the 50's and during those almost all white years the NBA struggled mightily while teams like the Harlem Globetrotters did quite well for themselves. whats weird to me is that on all of the stories i've found about the proposed all white basketball league where probably no one will dunk is the comments section. theyre basically filled with people that look at things like BET(which is owned by a group of white people) and historically black colleges and universities like Morehouse college(which was attended by MLK and recently had a white valedictorian) as proof that white people have been getting the shaft in this country while not realizing things like the fact that historically black doesnt mean exclusively black. it just means that the college was started by a black person and has a lot of black students and under federal law no public school can exclude a person based on race but enough of this BS lets look at some of the best moments in white basketball history...and a few shawn bradley lowlights

oh and if i'm gonna do shawn bradley lowlights i have to show the 7'6'' bradley being blocked by the my height 6'0'' earl watson

ok seriously though here's some decent white action courtesy of larry bird,david lee and one of my absolute favorite players ever Bill Laimbeer

note to self:get a Laimbeer jersey at some point in the very near future
