Want to prove the Utah management purposely picks white players over black players? Bust out the draft record. Prove they draft more white players than black players. If they choose a higher percentage of white players in the draft than other teams, you have a case. Utah, the state itself, cannot attract the average black NBA basketball player.
Furthermore, let's not forget that this team that was apparently put together to appeal to the white man beat the Rockets in 7 and is currently up 2-0 on a team with .. 1 white player?
Utah chooses character players. Period. They would not even look at guys like Jackson because he is of low character. His color has nothing to do with it.
