    Re: Black and White

    A lot of black athletes get into sports to get out of where they are from. They are very motivated and use that motivation to hone their skills.

    (This always isn't always necessarily black people or athletes. See Eminem.)

    It's really not that interesting that a team full of players from Iowa is white, and a team full of players not from Iowa is not...

    No doubt. Jack Handy is probably wishing he thought of this.

    Statistics are colorblind.


    "Day after day, situation after situation you do things the right way. If you do things the right way, in life, you are going to be successful. I'm not just your football coach; I'm not just here to win games. I could not be prouder of who we are and who we are becoming, together. You do things right in the classroom, off and on the field; that's whats's makes us Cyclones and that's what our culture's all about."

    Re: Black and White

    This is a dumb thread to contribute to but I will anyways. Race is really irrelevant in hoops its a sport where you play and succeed if you are good not bc of your color. If race mattered Kevin Love wouldn't be the best player at his position in the NBA.

    Here is an explanation for why more BB players are black. Height is very important in BB you won't go anywhere if you are small. To be a pro/D1 player you need to be an amazing all around athelete and will be automatically be good at other sports. So we are talking about extremely athletic kids around 6ft or over who will be good at anything. I think your 6ft-6-6 amazing athlete white kid is more likely to play another sport than basketball (hockey, play qb in football, baseball) than a 6ft-6-6 black kid. (Anyone over 6-6 is automatically geared towards hoops of course so I am refering to kids with the body and talent to be a D1 guard or small forward.)
