    Timberwolves Organization Racist?

    "There are five real good recruits in the state. We got three of them. One couldn’t get into school, and the other went to (the University of) Iowa...which is about the same thing." - Coach Johnny Orr

    Here's the article from the STrib Timberwolves: Pale in comparison to the rest of the NBA | StarTribune.com

    Absolutely ridiculous reverse racism here, who cares what color the players are?

    Re: Timberwolves Organization Racist?

    About 17% of the Minneapolis population and 14% of the St. Paul population is African-American but only about 5% of the Minnesota population.

    A 2011 estimate puts Black population in Minnesota at about 289,000.

    By comparison, the same 2011 estimate puts Iowa Black population at about 95,000.

    Re: Timberwolves Organization Racist?

    Every NBA analyst I've seen has called this guy out as an idiot, as they should. If they were starting guys like Brian Scalabrine he might have a point but when it's Kevin Love, Ricky Rubio, etc you're just race baiting and I was happy to see that nobody took the bait.

    maybe the GM should sign up on blackpeoplemeet.com so he could meet some basketball players to sign

    Re: Timberwolves Organization Racist?

    Really? Isn't it racist then that only black people should be playing on NBA teams?

    This is weird. People don't go to games for racial makeup. They go if the team is good.
