    The NBA draft is one of the worst examples of the caste system. According to ESPN's "expert" Chad Ford, Jimmer Fredette is ranked 20th while Kyrie Irving is rated the top pick in the upcoming NBA draft. Notice how much worse Duke was this season compared to last season. The difference was they "gained" Kyrie Irving, and lost Jon Scheyer. Scheyer,committed the worst offense in American basketball: playing while white American, and went undrafted. Irving whom I've seen play in person (I was not impressed)played less than half a season. Duke got Irving back in time for the NCAAs but went nowhere. With Scheyer leading the team, Duke won the National Title.

    NBA "stars" proclaimed Jimmer a very special player. But the brainless, racist, caste whores such as Ford use the same buzz words such as "lacks lateral quickness" when belittling Fredette. Fredette has a killer crossover and was clearly able to beat any defender one on one who tried to guard him.

    BYU was a weak team w/o Fredette, especially after losing the black inside player. He had to score most of the points in the game against Florida which BYU Lost in overtime. Yet, according to Ford, NBA racist, low IQ GMs were waiting for a "bad game" from Fredette so they could justify drafting him much lower than he deserves. Edited by: jwhite96

    As the days go by, I kind of wish that Tyler Zeller had entered this Draft.

    It's a weak Draft, and he could've been a late lottery pick. I don't think he would have gotten the "Budinger/McRoberts treatment"...

    So... a Basketball analyst aka NBA expert (including NBA GM's) KNOW better basketball than the NBA players themselves????

    These nuthead (anti-white) analysts, experts and GM's only OBSERVE the game, MOST never actually played the game, let alone a pick up game. That's laughable when most are nerdy, glass-eyed, beer bellied, couch potatoes.

    It's also disturbing that the kind of season Andrea Bargnani (21.4 points in 66 games) had is becoming another Darko-like dilemma. Yes, his 5.2 rebounds is embarrassing for his height, but why use him (like Darko) as another reason to NOT draft more European (White especially) players????

    Again, Darko was NEVER given the right opportunity to play until this season, while Bargnani is constantly out of position (not a Center). Plus, he's been having ankle issues (missed 16 games).

    "Experts", have been lately bringing up the "Street Ball Mentally" that most white players (let alone Europeans like Pau Gasol & Dirk Nowitzki) DON'T have. What's that got to do in being a successful NBA player????

    That's the latest ploy in preventing more white players to the NBA. Edited by: j41181

    j41181,

    What about black disappointments that were taken (#1 Overall) like Kenyon Martin, Emeka Okafor and Greg Oden?

    Another thing about Oden is.. he never struck me as having a "live body" like Bogut, Gortat and Divac.Edited by: Deadlift

    Oden was called the most athletic center to come around in 10 years in all of the scouting reports I read on him. Looks like his athleticism hasn't helped him.

    NONE of the "experts" are labeling Oden a bust just yet, because he's "young and full of potential." [​IMG]

    They're waiting (cross fingered and masturbating) on him to finally get healthy (more like serviceable) to roll down the red carpet and declare "a star is born." [​IMG]

    As for Kenyon Martin, Emeka Okafor... not much criticism on them because they're doing things the experts just love to hammer on players like Bargnani and Milicic...

    DEFENSE, Rebounds, CONSISTENCY, Serviceability

    IMHO, They've been far from superb, more like just LUCKY to be on PLAYOFF-bound teams. Even if Milicic and Bargnani were a BIG PART of playoff bound teams, the harsh criticism (white players especially) will never end.

    Look at the latest criticisms on Pau Gasol, after 3 straight NBA finals (2 rings), 3 straight All-Stars, back 2 back Double-Double seasons, and they still just love to label him.... SOFT! [​IMG]

    Another thing, I don't give a crap whether a player is No. 1, 2 or 3 option on a team. You can also be a SUPERSTAR as a No. 2 or 3 option, and the funny thing is, DWF's for years have often labeled Dirk Nowitzki as a natural 2 (or 3) option on teams outside Dallas.

    But wait, why can't white players of the post-Larry Bird era (1992-Present) be No. 1 options????

    Such is the atmosphere of the NBA has been for years... ANTI-WHITE.Edited by: j41181

    J41181, check this out. http://www.nbadraft.net/2012mock_draft

    One white American, Tyler Zeller, is projected to be drafted in 2012. If that happens it will be the worst draft ever for white players.

    Unlike 1999 (naive 18 year old), I'm praying for the LOCKOUT to truly happen, and if it means preventing Nowitzki, Nash, Gasol, Ginobili, Stojakovic from achieving further career milestones, so be it.

    Amazing how there are several white draft candidates (NCAA and Europe) and yet, ONLY ONE is officially projected?!?

    That's not typical that's insane! [​IMG][​IMG]

    Can't wait to see David Stern go, and the NBA crumbling to dust one day. Because for them, MAJORITY (or All) BLACK means triumph of DIVERSITY. [​IMG]

    I am no expert on the NBA, but I think getting drafted lower works to Fredette's advantage. He can be in a position to prove all of the experts wrong everytime he walks on to the court, if he becomes a superstar.

    In my opionion, one of the biggest reasons some white basketball players haven't been as successful as they should be is because they fall in love with the three point shot. I think that the 3 point shot has ruined the careers of many white basketball players. If you look at all the top basketball plavyers that every played the game, Larry Bird included, they get a good portion of their points from the free throw line. You can have a lousy night shooting, but if you can get 10-12 points from the free throw line on a nighly basis, you are going to score around 20 points a night.

    The black players tend to have more of a mentality of getting to the foul line more on a nightly basis then the white basketball players. Even Dirk was shooting a lot of 3 pointers early in his career until the black coach (I forget his name he was the short guy) persumbly told him what the heck are you doing shooting 3 pointers when you are a 7 foot athletic freak. I think that changed Dirk's career from very good player to MVP candidate. If you look at some of the white ball players that start such as Kevin Love, Dino Galleri, Manu, Steve Nash etc. they get a good number of their points from the free throw line, so even if they have a bad shooting night they still score between 15 - 20 points per game. If you look at some of the guys that aren't starting but probably should be such as Bundinger, J.J. Redick, etc. they shoot very few three throws per game, so if they have a lousy night shooting they don't contribute much.

    Just my thoughts. The key for any white player to be successful in the NBA is they should decrease their number of three point shots, shoot more mid-range shots and figurs out how to get to the foul line.

    Basketball is very important to our race, and, right now, I believe White forwards are inspiring other White forwards, immensely. An almost contagious atmosphere has been brought forth.

    From Kevin Love to Marcin Gortat.. From PAU to Andrew Bogut.. From David Lee to Chris Kaman.

    In college.. the exploits of Cole Aldrich, Psycho-T, Tyler Zeller, Josh Harrellson, Jon Leuer, Chas McFarland, Nick Fazekas, Harangody, Matt Howard, Gordon Heyward, Budinger, Kevin Love (I still wish he had returned for his Soph. season), Jon Brockman, Goran Sutton, Nikola Vucevic, Artsiom Parakhouski, Mason Plumlee, Chandler Parsons, Ryan Anderson, Trent Plaisted, Oregon had a forward named Marty (but I forgot his last name), Dayton had a good forward, etc...


    I'm hoping for big things from Jeff Withey (looking at the Kansas roster, he could start alongside Thomas Robinson.), Alex Kirk, Alabama 7-footer - Engstrom, Jon Kreft, Reeves Nelson, Jack Cooley, Olek Czyz, etc. As much as I like Ryan Kelly, I think the deck is stacked-against-him (maybe the same could be said about Natyazhko?).

    Here's an article that talks about the upcoming 2011 draft:

    http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2011/writers/sam_amick/04/21/draft.international/index.html?xid=cnnbin&hpt=Sbin

    It would appear that this may end up being a very white draft, fueled by international players, similar to 2003.

    Not surprisingly, this little bit stands out:

    None of the executives polled by SI.com sounded pleased with this development, though. In fact, the reality that these particular players are on the rise is seen by some as an indictment of the American-born crop as it currently stands.

    As soon as there's a chance that the NBA might become just a tad whiter, there's panic in the establishment. I'm not very happy about the lack of White American born players, but if the only way to get more whites is through the international route, I'll take it.Edited by: foobar75

    From the article:


    Instead of whining about Perry Jones (he soft), they should be whining about Tyler Zeller not entering. Instead of crying about the tubby Jared Sullinger, they should be praising the "deceptively quick" Josh Harrellson! He'd be a good fit as a power forward in the NBA.

    They should also be praising Chandler Parsons.

    This honestly made sick to the stomach. There are plenty of great white ball players, I can't believe the NBA is ignoring them like this!

    Great news. I hope he ends up in Utah. The perfect fit for him to become an all star!

    I'm actually kind of excited for this draft. Some mocks had as many as 6 whites in the top 10 draft choices. In a league that is 72% black, that's a major improvement!

    NBADRAFT.net has five whites in the top 11 I believe. However, only about 10 whites are expected to be taken in the entire draft. That's not an improvement.

    And how many of those 10 are AMERICAN? Jimmer Freddette is the only projected lock, while Singler is a fringe 1st round/2nd round pick, and no other white American in sight.

    Now that I think about it, JACKSON EMERY should've been given some special consideration. He's BYU all-time leader in steals, and in a parallel universe, he'd be a decent defensive/sharpshooter specialist (ala Derek Fisher).

    Chandler Parsons could be a Lamar Odom-type player. But, in reality, don't expect either to make it.

    Only a few are white Americans, J41181. If anything, the NBA is actually getting slightly darker at the moment. Imagine if these white Europeans weren't coming into the league at this point. The NBA would be 90% black by now.

    Leuer, Singler, Fredette, and Parsons are most likely the only white Americans that get drafted this year. That's 4 out of 60. That's not even 7 %. Absolutely pathetic!!

    Then we have more proof of basketball's Caste System.. because Ben Hansbrough and Josh Harrellson are vastly superior to 3/4 of the affletes in this Draft, a Draft that even the Caste Media admits is lackluster in it's "affletic content."

    If former Kentucky benchwarmer, Daniel Orton, was a "1st Rounder".. then Harrellson should be a damn lottery pick! Harrellson reminds me of a "smaller version" of Marc Gasol; both are full of intangibles and fundamentals and are much quicker than given credit for!

    I was glad to see the Twolves get the 2nd pick in the NBA Draft and the Jazz get the 3rd pick. Both teams have a chance to get alot better. I hope the Twolves take Kanter to help out Love on the inside. I want the Jazz to take Freddette. Edited by: white lightning

    Unfortunately, the T-Wolves will probably take Derrick Williams, and, with that move, they wouldn't get better IMO. The NBA is not the PAC-10.

    That reeks! [​IMG]

    Ben Hansbrough was having wonderful senior year, which should've been enough to warrant him draft status. He's quite below Freddette, but just as capable in many ways. I'm beginning to see the need for MORE white guards (American especially).

    Is it ever a wonder why the 3-POINT SHOOTOUT has gotten "too black"?

    There have been so many sharpshooting whites forced to play overseas (or give up the sport) in recent years, just because they lack "athleticism", EXCITEMENT, or "defense" (biggest criticism on Freddette).

    Ricky Rubio, who would make a great addition to the white guard presence, is clearly hesitant to make the NBA jump. Due to the recent criticisms being bombarded on his fellow countrymen (Pau Gasol, Jose Calderon, Rudy Fernandez). THEY just love to call these Euros "soft."
