New All-White Basketball League: Not Racist at All! | Rights and Liberties | AlterNet
I think it's a great idea! If he can find enough players to fill rosters for 12 teams, he should be bankrupt in less than 6 months.
Insanity. This is a joke...right???
The Akron Silents, pictured here, were not known for their trash-talking.
Yeah...it's a joke....not the funny kind. The other kind.
Sounds about as "fundamentally" entertaining as watching paint dry.
Seriously, this is a bullshlt story. A league like this has no chance in the south today.
Now, take this same doughy roadshow out to Idaho, Wyoming and the Dakota's and maybe they find two nickels to rub together and get half a season off the mats before the whole shebang files for chapter 7.
I'd rather watch old blind dogs humping dead tree stumps...

Sounds like they'd have a team called the WIZARDS.
Maybe a team called the CRACKERS.
Possibly the DOUGHBOYS
Actually, the VIKINGS would work.
The Wizards could play in an arena called "The White House"
Really, I think people would see right through this.
Isn't this the same group that tried to start the all black hockey league last year, but couldn't find enough players to get that league off the ground either?
And I thought six feet and under leagues were discriminatory!
Not many black guys kicking field goals in the NFL. What's up with that?
I have to asume this is a joke, and even so.... anything that pushes racist and racial sterotypes is in totally poor taste.
But, if it is legit... its indeed a sad group of people that would support it and even more pathetic group that would organize and be part of it.
All those guys interested are choosing a career in nursing.
In intellectual position without much hitting.
Why do we need this when we can just watch BYU's basketball team?
I'm still waiting for the April Fool's popup.
The only NBA crotch grabbing I can remember is after Steve Nash tried to take a charge a couple of years ago. He had both hands clamped over the area for the better part of a quarter. That may have been the last time he tried to take a charge too.
Anyway... Let's do the time warp again.
I'm assuming ultimately this will turn out to be a hoax, a weak and pathetic attempt to draw attention away from MLK day. Not a hoax in the sense that this guy isn't deadly serious, but one in the sense that he will never get past his initial press release.
Shawn Kemp grabbed his crotch after dunking. There was a decent amount of it with Kemp, Larry Johnson and Dream Team 2 also. (Crotch grabbing is really my forte when it comes to basketball history.)
This league would be cool if they only had black coaches and GM's etc.
Uhmmm...Ernie...wtf are we talking about here??? Decent amount of IT???
Don't forget the Reggie Evans crotch grab...that was a classic.
Some other interesting articles on white players in the NBA and how 25% seem to be employed by the greatest....Larry Bird
