    The Washington Wizards have drafted two white guys on a team with talented whites already there. Who would have thought that would happen? In a way it reminds me of around 15 years ago. Washington had an all white starting 5 including guys like G. Muresan, R.Chapman and D. McClean to name a few. That is when they were still called the Washington Bullets.

    The Wizards drafted Deni Avdijua in the first round and now Vit Krejci in the 2nd round. This might be a new team to watch.

    Nigeria is the largest country in Africa with a population of nearly 200 million and growing rapidly. While it hasn’t gotten the same attention as Somalia, the United States has been getting flooded with Nigerians over the last decade. Well now the affects of this immigration policy is becoming evident. I’ll present this years NBA draft as my first piece of evidence...

    Contrast the 6 Nigerians drafted with the 4 White Americans drafted (Pritchard, Mannion, Justinian Jessup, Sam Merrill) and you’d think that the Big Noses who run the NBA might see a problem with their business model. You know, eliminating what is still the overwhelmingly largest demographic in the country?! But no, they’ve gone all-in on brown a long time ago and only show signs of further escalation if this draft teaches us anything.

    Confirms what we've been calling out for years. Nigerian invasion is real. I just shared that article on CF gab page! Again encourage anyone that hasn't done so, to check it out and join us there as well!

    Last year I started counting Nigerians on major college basketball teams and I counted 168 Nigerians and I posted it on a thread here but I don't remember which one. This year I had started counting them on college football teams and stop counting when I got to 168 and had more teams to count. Texas, Georgia, Florida, NY and California had the largest population of Nigerians two years ago, I don't know about now.

    Noticed The Bucks Drafted Sam Merrill in The 2nd RD. Good value there. They were also trying to trade Ilyasova and Donte D to Sacramento but that trade fell through.

    Interesting that Golden State double dipped with Mannion and Jessup! Both should see a ton of minutes with Klay hurt again.

    Pritchard to The Celtics is good too. Even though we were deprived of having many White guy's drafted, seems most ended up in decent spots.

    Yea, I agree that the landing spots were pretty good.

    Just to note with Jessup, he had already signed a professional contract to play overseas before the draft. So he was picked as a “draft and stash” similar to the Euros who come along every year. Hopefully he plays well enough for the Warriors to want him but there is no guarantee he’ll ever play in the NBA.

    Glad to do it. The next black wave is the Somalians. The Obama Administration had Somalians relocated to mostly white locations across the country. Grab a cab from the Minneapolis airport and see if you can find a white cab driver.
    Nigerians also making waves in the MMA world.

    Too bad they can't make waves in their own country and build up their own society!
