@mosdef don't be such an

@mosdef don't be such an ignorant please, race has nothing to do with the place you were born, it has to do with the color of your skin. Rubio is caucasian/white, like almost 90% of the Spaniards. This comes from a spaniard

Yes I consider Rubio white,

Yes I consider Rubio white, people from Spain are white, but not spanish speaking people from mex/south/central america. Well it will take an injury or two but still probably happens.

Gugliotta

Mclean

Chapman

Skiles

@Doc

Juwan Howard was a holdout and then the Bullets traded Googs for Webber so the team changed quickly but for a few games all white starters

The fact that they grabbed

The fact that they grabbed Budinger makes me think this is no accident. This is probably some Kahnian Market Strategy

@mosdef; it doesn't really

@mosdef; it doesn't really matter what you consider yourself, the world will still see you as white for the most part. I'm Italian, but I've never been called anything but white.

So I'm assuming the possible lineup is:

PG - Rubio

SG - Ridnour

SF - Budinger

PF - Love

C - Pekovic

I suppose you could throw Barea in there too as a possible starter with Rubio. It's an interesting stat, but not as big a deal as people are making it out to be.

I would hope that either

I would hope that either Derrick Williams or Michael Beasley would be able to win the starting small forward position

Maybe but still he would have

Maybe but still he would have to stay healthy 82 games because I think they like Beasley as instant offense off the bench, maybe they have 9 white players out of 13 i cant even keep track so many moves Minny is making they traded Ellington for Cunningham too i guess

Wolves just signed AK so no

Wolves just signed AK so no chance Derrick Williams can start now. So it is only a matter of time they have 10 white players now, possibly Roy could start but he is not playing 82 games with his injuries

Beasley is on the suns and the wolves are not going to keep cunningham.

I can't believe it... This is

I can't believe it... This is maybe the 3rd thread today (and yesterday) about that "all white theory" and this is again so stupid.

I'm astonished that such a question tease you so much, guys. You really have an issue

When I see the Twolves trades this summer, I don't see white or black players. I just see a GM that trades away Beasley, Randolph, Webster, Johnson (all underachieving overrated players) Ellington Tolliver Miller Milicic (garbage) and brings solid experienced or international or role players Roy Shved Kirilenko Stiemsma Budinger Cunningham.

THOSE are great SPORTS moves. nothing else around colour of the skin or marketing.

I see that... that's why I

I see that... that's why I didn't negg you. But I still really don't understand why this colour issue is so important.

Does this player can play smart team basketball ? Does this trade / signing is a good move ?

... that's the only questions we should ask.

No way in hell are you Spanish. I'm Spanish and we definitely consider Rubio to be white. You are a racist and a damn liar.

GTFO.

Like I have been telling you, most American NBA fans are racist as hell and incredibly xenophobic and they absolutely hate whites and Europeans.

You can say whatever you want, but it is a clear fact. The same thing is true of most of the NBA managers, scouts, coaches.

They have EXTREME racism towards white players.
