The smartest White team in the NBA

T-Wolves team return to the 1950s?

Race controversy swells up once again as seen in the bitter reactions to an October 28, 2012 Star Tribune story (“Timberwolves: Pale in comparison to the rest of the NBA”), about how the T-Wolves are “going White,” with readers opposed to my saying it was not a coincidence but a Timberwolves calculation, that I was beating a dead horse. Commenters backed David Kahn (Wolves president of basketball operations), and Rick Adelman (head coach).

I used words like “disturbing,” “raises some real questions,” “calculated.” I paraphrased Martin Luther King, Jr.’s “nullification of diversity and a reversal of history”.

Did not Coach Rick Adelman say that with his now mostly all-White team, he finally has “a very smart team”? Are White quarterbacks smarter? Or just Whiter?
