    I just got home from the Mavs v Thunder game. Was not too exciting, but featured plenty of White talent. Ty Jerome and Josh Giddey were impressive for the Thunder. Giddey has a great all around game, but his shot needs some refining. Porzingis was dressed for the game, but did not play. Luka was rusty/sloppy, but it felt like he could have done more, if necessary. He was mostly looking to pass, and should’ve had a few more assists if guys could hit shots. Kleber and Pokusevski had some good moments.

    Overall the game had a preseason/G-league feel, due to the missing Covid players, resting players, and OKC’s weak roster. One game every couple years is enough for me.

    I'm happy to see Garza and Kispert finally getting some good minutes. They both are playing good.

    So when will San Antonio unleash Wieskamp? They keep calling him up but either don't play him or he might get 1 or 2 minutes. You can't
    do anything in that amount of time. Same story with McClung with the Bulls. They did resign him to a 2nd ten day contract yet they don't
    play him. I would bet that Wieskamp is more likely to get a chance as the Spurs are not a good team. Chicago is one of the better teams in
    the nba eastern conference and being a playoff team will make it almost impossible i.m.o. for McClung to get much of a chance there barring
    some injuries. I'm hoping either the Bulls suprise me and play him or they let him go and another team that is sub par will sign him and see
    what he can do. Both Wieskamp and McClung can become starters but they need for the teams and the coaching staff to believe in them. Hoping
    for something positive in the 2nd half of the season. We need more white american stars & especially guys that can both jump out of the gym!

    Pops the commy is as anti-white as they come so don't expect Wieskamp to get any significant minutes anytime soon. Popovich makes me truly sick how he transformed a once proud franchise built on smart, high IQ basketball into a ghetto cesspool of And-1 type players

    Here are tonights top performers. Again I want to add that the Miami Heat played 10 guys in tonights win. Five white guys and five black guys. That is what I call fair!
    The Miami Heat are the team to watch in my opinion. I would say Dallas, Cleveland, Chicago and Orlando after that with a few other ok teams.

    Max Strus 25 points, 6 rebounds and 5 assists
    Tyler Herro 16 points, 5 rebounds, 3 assists and 1 steal

    Duncan Robinson 12 points and 4 rebounds
    Kyle Guy 9 points and 1 assist

    Bogdan Bogdanovich 36 points, 13 rebounds, 4 assists and 1 steal

    Nikola Jokic 26 points, 21 rebounds, 11 assists and 2 blocks (TRIPLE DOUBLE)

    Domantas Sabonis 32 points, 12 rebounds, 10 assists for a (TRIPLE DOUBLE)

    Kevin Hueter 25 points, 11 rebounds, 5 assists and 1 steal
    Danillo Gallinari 16 points, 3 rebounds and 1 steal

    Luka Doncic 26 points, 7 rebounds, 8 assists and 2 steals

    Terrific night for white players - thank you for posting. Giddey's stat lines this season have been simply eye-popping. I know the league is increasingly "positionless," but I can't think of a guard who racks up these gaudy tallies at all currently of any race (including Amerinds and Asiatics for good measure). Domantas Sabonis does it from the 3/4/5 does it as a non-primary scorer who sometimes takes over the ball when he's hot. Draymond Green used to put up a parallel line across the sheet, but never had to more than a third concern for defensive schemes. Imagine if he learns to score! I would say Giddey is currently on par with Magic Johnson as far as trajectory goes. Both he and Franz Wagner currently look like max-extension players for the entirety of their careers. Not bad for draft #'s 6 and 8, and kudos to those franchises who were both thought to have "reached" at the time.

    You took the words right out of my mouth. To make it even better is their ages. Josh Giddey is 19 and Franz Wagner is 20 years old! So we will see these guys continue to
    even get better over the next decade and beyond. Both are franchise type players to build a team around!

    What a night thanks WL! Glad to see Strus back and lighting it up after a miraculous recovery from Covid.

    As noted by white lightning above, Herro, Robinson and Strus combined for 74 of the Heat's 123 points in last night's win against all black Phoenix.

    Also scoring 2 last night was ex-Virginia guard Kyle Guy, who got a 10 day contract 2 weeks ago. He got off to a sizzling start and has been kept around and is even getting decent minutes each night. That makes 4 white, American guards playing on one team. In this day, that would be similar to an NFL team having an all-white receiving corp -- think Super Bowl Patriots?

    One spoiler, on my part, is upon looking up Guy I kept seeing search suggestion "Kyle Guy wife". I usually don't care, but I took the bait. He married his junior high sweetheart, a black Mulatto and has a daughter with her.

    Not sure how that plays in NBA locker rooms? Unlike the NFL, NBA stars tend to have an unwritten rule (among the elite players) that the brotha's should stick with sista's .... and vice-versa?

    Good for Guy. At least his quadroon son will have hip swivel and unlimited upside.

    Bucks and Heat have 7 White American Guards between the 2 Eastern Conference Giants!

    Domantas Sabonis with a 11-23-10 triple double in a narrow loss to the Celtics. Sabonis was the only white player to set foot on the court for either team.

    Yes he was the lone white guy on either team yet he was the best player by far on the court from either side. I feel bad for Sabonis. He is very underaprectiated in Indiana
    and they are trending in the wrong direction. At some point he might be best to seek a trade to another team.

    Looks like he is on the trading block. I wish the Maverick’s would swing a deal for him. I do t think they have a enough talent or draft picks to pull it off. I doubt the pacers would take Porzingis.

    Just a quick update on Mac McClung. He was sent back to the Lakers G League Team. He had signed 2 consecutive 10 days contracts with the Bulls where he only played
    in 1 game for 2 minutes. So the Bulls call him up to have him sit on the bench and hold a towel for 20 days. Why call him up? He played 2 minutes and sat every other game
    and watched. This league is so anti white that it makes me sick. Hope McClung can get away from the Lakers G League Team at some point and actually go to a team that
    will play him. Look at what the Miami Heat are doing. Why can't more teams take a chance on these guys? Let's wait and see if another team calls him up before the season
    ends. McClung deserves a chance. The kid can flat out play!

    Donte "White Chocolate" DiVincenzo returned to action this week for the Bucks. Glad to see him on the court at the same time as both Grayson Allen and Pat Connaughton.
