Why can't white people play basketball?
    #4086277 - 04/22/05 10:02 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

I swear whenever I turn on an NBA game, 95% of the players are black. The white guys stick out like sore thumbs. Whenever these white guys get the ball they seem to trip over themselves, miss the basket completely, or get the ball stolen from them. It's embarrassing to watch. Why are white guys so uncoordinated in comparison to black guys?

Why are scientists trying to find a cure for cancer when this serious and inexplicable phenomenon exists?

Ok....some white guys seem to be freaks of nature and they buck the trend. I think they must have been genetically modified with some black genes or something for them to perform well.

What about all the other bumbling and mediocre white basketball players that I seem to see?

Dirk Nowitzki. Mike Bibby. Jason Kidd (1/2 white. Steve Nash. Bobby Hurley. Larry Bird. John Stockton. Granted though, most of the athleticly telanted people happen to be African American. Possibly the fact that we took the "strongest ones" over to be slaves, and sat on our ass while they did all of the work; possibly forcing some type of evolutionary change, and obviously an example of selective breading (by accident or not.)

Black people can play hockey, its just that the money was not in that sport so their parents didn't teach them to play it; and also because hockey is an expensive sport to play and most minority households are in the poverty level. The guy on Calgary ...what was his name..hmm

Tis true white man can't jump.
I(whitey) am the same height as Michael Jordan...cool enough...but can I dunk?
HELLS NO!.
Actually I can dunk (not like Jordan though DUH!), but why put all that effort into scoring only 2 points when I can drain the tre?

As Chris Rock said in his standup, he mentioned that slaveowners back in the day would breed strong blacks together in hopes of gaining stronger, more athletic and tough offpspring. And now the blacks dominate most sports, interesting

Martial Arts is a pretty well rounded sport, I've seen great black martial artists as wella s whites and Irishmen... never seen a spanish or mexican martial artist though.

watch UFC, and Pride

there's a couple black guys that kick some ass.. but the majority of the sport (MMA) is dominated by whites, asians, and there are plenty of hispanic fighters - the Gracie family comes to mind. But ya I guess there's exceptions to everything./
