    Lots of whites playing in Sixers vs Heat tonight! Often 5 at a time.

    This series is going to be fun to watch. Most of them on both teams are stars too. The box score will be fun to look at after
    the game.

    So the Philly 76ers win in a blow out and all of our guys led the team to a huge game one win!

    JJ Reddick 28 pts

    M. Bellinelli 25 pts

    D. Saric 20 pts

    E. Illysova 17 pts/14 rebounds.


    So our guys scored 90 of the 130 pts! Wow you can't ask for much more than that?

    The 4 above-mentioned whites from the 76ers shot a combined 15 for 23 from 3 point land. On the Miami side, Olynyk and Dragic were a combined 7 for 9 from behind the arc and were the Heat's top two scorers. Phenomenal shooting night for whites!

    What an amazing bunch of pick-ups the sixers made with Bellinelli and Illysova! I keep hearing how much they need Embiid back, but I think they're better without him.

    My disinterest in the NBA has reached a pinnacle this season and this from a guy who used to live and breath the NBA. But I have been picking it up a bit as I noticed the 76'ers white players (lumped together as the role players) have been scoring well.

    And last night I caught a big chunk of the Pelicans-Portland game . Lead by cleanly shaven Nikola Mirotic and his 30 pts. and great all around floor game the Pelicans went up 3-0 on Portland which has been a bit of a surprise. Mirotic the ex Bulls player who had his jaw broken by a black teammate who sucker punched him is not considered the star ( that designation belongs to the rangy Anthony Davis) but he has played well since changing teams.

    But what also struck me was the playing style of Portland. Led by their two high scoring backcourt "superstars" Lillard and McCollum, the Trail Blazers offense was centered around their ball hogging style and lacked any sort of flow or sense of teamwork. It boiled down to either one of these guys dribbling away looking for their shot as if they were the only two players on the team. Makes for great ESPN highlights where commentators breathlessly screech about their talent as they put up huge scoring nights during the season but their ball hogging ways have exposed the Trail Blazers as yet another team dominated by "black stars" who truly play awful team basketball.

    Sixers take a 3-1 series lead over Miami led by JJ Redick's 24 points. At times they had four Caucasians on the floor at one time........

    Ricky Rubio with a triple double yesterday ......only third player to do so in playoffs. Making Russell Westbrook look like a clown. At the post-game presser Westbrook promised to 'shut him down in game 4'........LOL

    Lol indeed. Good for Rubio! Having a fantastic playoffs. Definitely hoping for a Utah win over OKCs "Big 3".

    Philly's white players scored 57 of the team's 106 points last night. They usually do score over 50%. A very good team for us.

    Rubio and Joe Ingles broke that game open in the third/early fourth quarter and OKC could not stop the bleeding. A good number of Europeans (Ingles is an Aussie) have done well so far in the first round. Mirotic, Saric, Dragic, Nurkic, Bogdanovic with his huge game the other night, and 'ol Ginobili with a nice game today as well.

    The total disappearance of the white American player is at least somewhat mitigated by all these Europeans having some decent success in the NBA.

    7 whites on the court last few minutes of the Sixers Heat game first half. What a refreshing mix of players. Too bad they couldn't meet in the finals.

    Awesome! What a sports year for the city of Philadelphia. Spirit of 1776!

    Nick Foles, Carson Wentz, Zach Ertz, Jason Kelce, Lane Thomas, Donte DeVincenzo, JJ Reddick, Dario Saric, etc. Lots of our guys made this happen.

    The 76ers closed out the Heat in 5 last night with probably the Whitest playoff team of the last decade. The Sixers had 8 players log double digit minutes. Their 5 White players were amongst the 8. There is a very real chance that this team could make it to the finals. The premier teams are all flawed. Boston is without their 2 best players, Gordon Hayward and Kyrie Irving. The Cavs are looking old and the Raptors are having a hard time with the 8th seeded Wizards right now.

    On a side note, the two consistently best Heat players this series were Dragic and Olynyk.

    Some thoughts.

    As I fully expected, teams that play whites do really good.

    Indy has no business hanging with the Cavs based on names but Bogdanovic and Sabonis have been shitting on Lebron.

    If only that silly negro Oladipo would stop his ghetto loser ball isos. What has he done to think he is in a position to go iso in every late game?

    76ers are dominating based on their whites Saric, Belli, Reddick and (not so white) Ilyasova. Bellinelli and Reddick look confident, like leaders of teams, which only proves the racist practise of their former teams.

    Here is the thing. You can't have white players and play low IQ "run faster, jump higher" ball. Suboptimal negro ball is not for white players. You need ball movement for that superior visual spatial IQ to shine.

    Heck, even Kyle Korver is bailing out the negro king, Lebron James. Lebron is like the epitome of negro basketball, yet a team of young smart whites would send him out if it wasn't for that loser Oladipo.

    White ball is like a taboo.

    Can't speak it. Can't show it. Can't play it.

    Did we forget a team of role players from white Australia almost beat the pretend Dream Team?

    This **** is done, practically any team of average whites would waltz into the finals. Negro ball is so suboptimal.
