    Coach Erik Spoelstra actually takes a strategic matchup approach in changing the starting lineup every game. Thus far this season, every game has had at least 2 Whites starting and all 5 Whites have recorded a game this season.

    Last night against the Hawks, the Heat started Leonard at C & Robinson at SG. Dragic recorded 19 mins (probably his lowest so far this season), Herro recorded 30 mins off the bench, Olynyk 22 mins off the bench, Robinson 27 mins and Leonard 25 mins. All 5 contributed and all 5 have been key contributors to their early success this season (4-1). Herro is a natural born scorer!!!

    There is nothing I want to see more than for Doncic to outplay Lebron tonight. Show to the world he has arrived and is ready to take over the NBA!

    Super rigged Mavs vs LAL game. LeBron got a shooting foul at the end (when he missed a wide open dunk) because Mavs players caused wind that rippled his jersey. When they were trying to foul at the end the refs swallowed their whistles.

    Also Dallas started off red hot but both KP and Luka went to the bench early due to ticky tack fouls called on them, one of the fouls Luka had called on him LeBron got away with all game except a blatant example in OT, allowing Lakers to claw their way back into the game.

    I couldn't agree with you anymore. They still want us to believe that Lebron James is the greatest of all time. Complete crap. I have Jordan, Bird, Kobe, Magic, Malone and others above him.

    Luka Doncic out played him despite the loss as he had a triple double in the 3rd quarter. Should have been a Mavs win. Horrible calls.

    Another blown call costing the Mavs the game at regulation

    I wonder why Green was so wide open

    There are articles all over, and even on BSPN, stating that the refs missed calls against Dallas. I’m sure this team of White superstars are going to be the victim of poor officiating all season.

    Luka had a triple double in the 3rd period of tonights big win at Cleveland. Ended up getting 29 points 14 rebounds and 15 assists. Boban finally got in the game and looked really good. I cant imagine how awesome it would have been had the reported Dragic trade actually been completed.

    Doncic is pulling down more rebounds than Porzingas every game. In fact he is leading the team in scoring, assists, and rebounds!

    Doncic is the next Larry Bird. He can do everything. He is the next superstar! To be honest he already is a superstar at 20 years of age. He has 11 triple doubles in 2 years and is averaging
    close to 30 points a game! The kid plays like an all star that has been in the nba for 5 to 10 years. There is nothing that Luka Doncic cannot do! Love the Mavs.

    The Heat looked amazing tonight too. They blew out the Houston Rockets who have two nba all starters and mvps on the team. This team is really good and the Heat made it look like practice
    out there. Duncan Robinson had 23 pts, M.Leonard had 21 pts, Hero 14 pts, Dragic 15 pts, and Olynyk with 6 pts. The Heat are every bit as fun to watch as the Mavs.

    The Suns are great to watch too. We have a few more teams to follow closely this season.

    Doncic had another triple-double last night. I just want to give Kevin Love a big shout as he is averaging 17 pts & 17 rebounds this season.

    Gordon Hayward with probably the most impressive stat line of season. 16-16 from two point range. Not a misprint. I think Bill Russell was the last player to do that. In a win finished with a 39- 8 -7 stat line. Was 17-20 from the field and is shooting over 50% from three this season. Off to a solid start this as are the Celtics. After LeBron James snapped his leg in two it what be sweet justice if this talented player gets back to the form he showed in his last year at Utah.

    Nice compilation thanks. 17-20 from the field. Not since Wilt Chamberlin from March 1967 has an NBA player been 16-16 from the two point area. Of course back then there was no three point shot. Brilliant game. Rebounded and dished out assists too. Good riddance ball hog Kyrie Irving. Gives Gordon Hayward more breathing space to do his thing and the team has only lost one game so far this season.

    (Like clockwork though overall not a great night so far for the white players. Worst news flash is Portland C/F Zach Collins will be out at least four months with a shoulder injury.)

    One other note. Donte D of the Bucks has had two good games in a a row but Pat C has had two bad games in a row. They both play the same position which hurts.

    Mario Henzonja has been starting lately for Portland. Curious to see where this goes since he is a great athlete.

    As of today, the 20 year old Luka Doncic is averaging 26.7 ppg (7th), 10.3 rebs (12th) and 9.5 (2nd) assist per game.

    Would be pretty inspiring for White kids around the globe if both Christian McCaffrey and Luka Doncic win the MVP award in their respective sports.

    I couldn't agree with you anymore. I will take it one step further. These two athletes in 2 different sports might be the most important white athletes to ever play their sports ever as far as the possible
    effect it could have on inspiring the white youth around the world that they can play any position in any sport and do it at the highest level.

    Just like guys like Christophe Lemaitre, Ramil Guliyv and Fillipo Tortu have done in track. Anything is possible if you believe before you acheive!

    It was great to see Tomas Satoransky finally have a big game tonight. The Bulls are not a very good team but he has been starting along with Markkenen all year long. He has been in a serious
    funk and could not hit a shot to save his life. On top of this he doesn't shoot much as he is very unselfish. Glad to see Satoransky break out tonight to lead the Bulls to a much needed win!

    Tomas Satoransky had 27 points, 7 rebounds and 8 assists! Wow is that a break out game or what. Maybe it will give him back some confidence.
    Lari Markkenen had 17 ponts, 6 rebounds and 4 assists.

    Agree W.L!

    We must also add Matthew Boling into the mix of most important athletes of this generation.

    For three decades, dating back to the 1970's, the New York Knicks were mostly an all-black team, with the exception of an occasional white fringe player here or there. Starting around 2009 that began to change with David Lee maturing into an All-Star, Danillo Gallinari drafted high and others. A team that had previously been unwatchable was one of the better teams to follow throughout this decade as they usually had 4 to 5 whites in their top 12. As recently as last year they featured talented young players like Kristap Porzingas (injured) and Mario Hezonja, as well as young, undrafted "overachievers" like Luke Kornet and Ron Baker (now playing in Russia).

    Thing is, the Knicks made "history" last year when black team President Steve Mills hired a pair of mulatto's to run every aspect of the team -- GM Scott Perry and HC David Fizdale (son of a white man). The history made was they were the first team in major league sports to have a "black" President, GM and Head Coach. While Steve Mills (also a mulatto?) did not seem hostile to whites before, both the mulatto GM and HC seem to be very anti-white. So the Knicks are going to back to where they were for almost 30 years (between the latter part of the 1970's until 2009) with basically all black teams.

    Currently, their token cracker is a Lithuanian-Canadian kid (Ignas Brazdeikis) who left Michigan way too early and is glued to the end of bench, even though he looked like a budding star during Summer League. And, perhaps, the only reasons the mulatto's traded up to select him in round two, and allowed him on the team at all, is because he's the best friend of fellow Canadian R.J. Barrett, who the Knicks picked 3rd overall in 2019 from Duke. In another stunning move, it looks like the Knicks entire D-League team (Westchester Knicks who play in front of only a few hundred Jewish fans each night) is all black. That means only 1 of 30 players currently employed by the Knicks is white. How about that for a sudden change?

    Good news is, the Knicks are currently the worst the team in the NBA (1-7), even after shedding all those whites for a bunch of wildly overpaid B or C level veteran starters from lottery teams -- Julius Randle, Bobby Portis, Taj Gibson and Elfrid Payton, as well as three overrated, overpaid veteran oafs from Detroit, who made the playoffs last season, but were swept in round one. Losers signing a bunch of aging losers from bad teams!

    The Knicks stink and they are old (as a roster). No reasons to believe things will get better soon, as they face an angry Porzingas and Doncic in Dallas tonight. Hopefully they get their @sses whooped!


    P.S: Knicks virulently anti-white coach David Fizdale looks a lot like the bizarre singer/rapper (with the funny nose and glasses) in a terrible music video from the early 1990's. Song/video was "The Humpty Dance", which was perhaps the worst song/video in U.S. history. If you don't believe that, you can easily find the YouTube video via a Net search. There is no way I'd ever link it here.

    I haven't followed the NBA in depth in a while so correct me if Im wrong. Unlike the NFL, the NBA isnt as openly anti white. In fact, the Jewish commissioner Adam Silver has explicitly said that he wants to get Europeans more involved in basketball. A team headed by two young superstar Euros is electric for the the league and will have the whole eastern block tuning in. I think the NBA should have a vested interest in seeing the Maverick succeed, or maybe this is just my naive white sensibilities!

    It's your naive White sensibilities and lack of short-term memory. You posited basically the same idea out of thin air back in post 2 of this thread, which I rebutted in posts 3 and 6.

    One has to go all the way back to the early 1970's and those classic teams to find a winning Knicks team that featured key white players. PF Dave DeBusschere was incredibly good and there was also Bill Bradley the Princeton phenomenon who wasn't quite as dazzling as a pro but was good just the same. Another huge college star they picked up for three seasons was the unique Jerry Lucas who must have been one of the first big men who could shoot from deep and also rebound the ball.

    Phil Jackson was a key player off the bench for those teams. Dave B and Bradley were part of two championships and that team was considered one of the smartest and most cohesive units to have ever played. Far cry from today where on most teams blacks hog the ball.

    Does Spike Lee have any say on the roster "makeup?" Dumping Porzingas, who I admit has shown immaturity at times , was a real head scratcher.

    The Heat continue to be a team to watch beating the also white friendly Suns tonight.

    Goran Dragic had 25 pts while Tyler Hero had 15 pts.

    The Suns had Rubio with 11 pts, 11 rebounds & 6 assists, Saric had 9 pts with 4 assists, and A.Baynes had 23 pts.

    The Celtics are not the best team to watch but I was glad to see Gordan Hayward continue to play exceptionally well. He had 20 pts, 10 rebounds and 6 assists!

    You are correct, Shadow, about the great Knicks teams of the 1970's, which I've read about and seen TV clips of. I figured most of them were gone by the mid-1970's, so the Knicks were basically all-black from about 1977 to 2009. Charles Barkley once said the Knicks were so black during those decades, that they were often referred to as the New York N*ggerbockers. Those are Barkley's word's, not mine. Just checked, the Knicks' teams of the 1990's only had two notable whites during that entire decade, a washed-up Goy finishing his career, Kiki Vandeweghe, and Chris Dudley, a Yalie who was a terrible free throw shooter. Both were backups during the decade. String of no white starters went throughout the 1990's and well into the 2000's until David Lee arrived.

    As far as Porzingas, he really wanted out of New York and would not re-sign after his rookie contract expired. Who can blame him? The Knicks mulatto GM and head coach claimed they never wanted to trade him, but wound up doing it anyway -- eagerly and as quickly as possible. Quite honestly, I never cared for the Knicks, but did enjoy following them most years between 2009 and last season (with Donnie Walsh and Phil Jackson as GM's). Perry and Fizdale are of the age that they probably remember when the Knicks being all black was the norm in New York. I guess they wanted to return the team those "halcyon days", when they excluded whites at all costs. Now the team is as bad as ever. Hope it stays that way.

    Speaking of all black teams, take away Gordon Hayward, and what notable whites has Boston had since Bird and McHale retired and Ainge was dealt? They are coming up on 3 decades of being all black. Los Angeles Lakers are similar (taking away P. Gasol and Divac) and they've been basically all black since the 1970's -- four decades.
