Are you legally and medically licensed to make this assertion of me? Because I sense some serious legal ramifications if you are not. Hmmm very questionable behavior on your part.

I'll be texting my attorneys just in case to let them know of possible libel charges. Don't worry, it's just an exploratory conversation with my lawyers. I don't feel like dragging this out and squashing the little guy.

So what are your thoughts on 75% of the league being African-American? I'm surprised it's not higher. Some teams don't even have any White guys. But I think that number will eventually bottom out around 60-65 percent as more Euros cross the pond.

As to your question I believe whoever is better should be able to get in. But world is not a fair affair so there's always those who don't get the opportunity they deserve.

At the risk of engaging you in a discussion meaningfully I will point out that a large portion of the people in America that we call "black" have some European ancestry.

Clearly. However, for players like Klay Thompson, Trae Young, Seth Curry, etc., I believe the league is classifying them as African-American in this scenario.

Which is why people sound like morons when they tell the white guys in the states that their "people" are responsible for slavery.



A vast majority of those "people" being referenced weren't even in the states when slavery happened and came to the states well after the civil war. A vast majority came from Europe. I bet if we ask any white poster on ISH where his great grand parents or great great grandparents were born, the answer is not some place in the states.

So? It's always been that way. Blame the one-drop rule.

The data shows that the percentage of blacks is the same as prior eras

The league has always been about 75% black

So bye bye to another lebron stan theory that the league is "blacker" now. It's not, but it's more euro bum than ever

.
African-American percentage of NBA (page 46)

2019 - 74.8%

1998 - 77.0%
1997 - 79.0%
1996 - 80.0%
1995 - 82.0%
1994 - 79.0%
1993 - 77.0%

Conclusion: MJ played against a higher proportion of African-American athletes than today's NBA player.. in addition to hand-checking, physicality, paint-camping, no spacing..

What happens if you put MJ in a leauge like today without any of that stuff? Does he average 50 or 55 ppg while winning 70+ games a year?

You've made a transpositional error. It's 72.56%
