    I went to the Wizards-Pacers game last night with a longtime buddy of mine and his brother. It was the first NBA game I had been to in a few years. Indiana's coach is Nate McMillan and the entire team, not just the starters, is 100% black, so I was rooting for Washington as they start Gortat, and Jason Smith and Tomas Satoransky get a good number of minutes off the bench. In what was a close, back and forth game the good guys pulled it out and won by I think 112-107. Gortat finished with 14 points and 16 boards in a very solid effort, and Smith and Sato had 6 points and 4 points respectively. Smith had a thunderous two handed dunk in the second half over Al Jefferson that had everyone in the arena cheering. It was voted play of the game by the staff in the arena who decide such things yet strangely it did not make the highlights of the game on BSPN. Maybe during Negro History Month a play by a white man has to be really, really, super dooper good to make the BSPN highlights.

    Watching the OKC v Golden State game. Thunder with 7 Whites on their roster. I'm guessing that's the most in the league. Billy Donavon was very fair to White players at Florida. This may be a team to keep an eye on.

    Yes, have been following them.
    Also, Mason Plumlee just traded to Denver from Portland for Jusuf Nuric. Denver has 5 whites on their roster. Denver may be another team to watch being that they could potentially be starting 3 of the 5, Jokic at center, Plumlee at PF and Gallinari at SF.
    Charlotte Hornets were playing 4 white players consistently also and have acquired Miles Plumlee for Spencer Hawes, I think. That gives them Kaminsky, Belinelli, Cody Zeller, and Plumlee all getting significant playing time.
    And it has been mentioned before, Philadelphia, although without a great record has knocked off some good teams this year sometimes starting 4 white players in; McConnell, Saric, Ilyasova, and Stauskas. They knocked off Dragic and Miami last night.

    Hayward, UTA. 31/4 ast.
    Dragic, MIA. 30/5 ast.
    Kaminsky, CHA. 20/8/5 ast.
    Belinelli, CHA. 17/4
    Olynyk, BOS. 19/7/3ast./2stls./2blks. should be starting!
    Saric, PHI. 19/6/4 ast.
    Ilyasova,PHI. 14/6
    Stauskas, PHI. 11/3
    McConnell,PHI. 11/10 ast./2 stls.
    Anderson, HOU. 16/4
    Dekker, HOU. 14/4
    Nowitzki, DAL. 14/6
    Len, PHX. 13/8
    Adams, OKC. 13

    76ers 3/5 white the entire game, sometimes 4/5 white, destroying the Hornets who have Black History month shirts on. Haha! Sixers have been doing great since the black starters got hurt. Longest win streak(7) in 5 years. Coincidence? These white boys are fun as hell to watch. Very quick.

    West tops East, 192-182 in the "All-Star" game. What a joke! Of course I would never watch it, but can only imagine how utterly preposterous and "ghetto" it must have been.

    Exactly. The "world's greatest athletes" must have put on a real show for the DWFs. Only one White man was invited, Gordon Hayward, it must have been his defensive insufficiencies that allowed such a high score. The NBA season can't end soon enough.

    I really hate to be negative, but i've been reading about Tj McConnell. He's been performing above average in production, but he can't seem to catch a break from all the DWF's. Article after article about Tj Mconnel saying "He's just a good story", and "likely won't stick after this season". I'm pulling for him hard that he proves them wrong. One of my favorite players at the moment. Also, their trying to replace Stauskas in the draft. Wish all the white Sixers the best.

    Yes that guy "Down to Buck" always posts awesome highlights of white players! His desriptions are pretty hilarious as well.

    Two white players in total both on the West roster: Gordon Hayward, and Marc Gasol. Kevin Love was snubbed.

    Hearing Chicago is sending Taj Gibson and Doug McDermott to OKC for Roberson and Paine. I like this move for Dougie Buckets , good position to take next step of his career as a scorer in a more open offense. Also how about Billy Donovan?! Surrounding Wetsbrook with a lot of pale faced talent.

    Love made the All Star team, but didn't play because of some type of knee injury. It hasn't been fully disclosed yet.

    Gordon Hayward continues his strong season. Last night he scored 29 points on 11-17 shooting and had not one but two poster dunks on the Bucks. One was on the so called Greek Freak which was fantastic. Just don't expect Mike and Mike in the Morning to pay any attention to him. They are too busy trying to land a date with Russell Westbrook. Hayward is turning 27 in March and he is just entering his prime. It is a relief to see a non big man white guy make some noise in the barren NBA these days. He is 6' 8" which is a great slash and do everything size in the current NBA.

    Hayward's dunks were awesome. He is having an outstanding year. As you said he is really coming into his own. Outstanding, athletic, talented player.

    Too bad McDermott never really got the opportunity he deserved in Chicago. I guess I shouldn't be too surprised though...just par-for-the-course for outstanding White athletes, as we all know. Just a couple years ago, Chicago was going to be the team to watch for in terms of being White-friendly. That never really materialized. He's a great talent and I hope he gets a fair shake at OKC.

    Well said and I agree! Sometimes you just need a change of scenery as a person and athlete! Chicago loves its affletes before bumass Rose blew out his knee(3x) people in Chicago were calling him the next Jordan lol Chicago fans are top 5 DWFs...

    The Utah Jazz contiue winning. They won again today behind 30 pts and 9 rebouns for Gordon Hayward. This kid is one of the most exciting players in the nba and at only 26 is will be a force for a long time to come. It's nice to see the Jazz finally winning a few games after many down years. They need to get a few more guys but they are a team to watch with Hayward being the face of the team!

    One of my favorite players Chandler Parsons has yet to put up any big numbers this season with the Grizzlies. At first it was because he was being held under 20 minutes a game because of injury, but now he's been injury free and the Grizlies have been screwing him. He was suppose to be an All-Star caliber player this year. This really grinds my gears. Free Parsons lol.
