David Kahn has long been a favorite punching bag among NBA fans for his seeming incompetence when it comes to building a competitor.  Now, it seems Kahn is under attack from members of Minnesota’s civil rights community.  Again, the complaints … Continue reading →

  • What, they aren't content with 90% black for the league? Supposed to have more blacks than whites on a team. Wouldn't that be racist? And to think, they can't understand why they are on the bottom of the fan base.Go figure.
  • I always wondered how black players and black leaders would respond when teams hired Hispanic players and foreign players to their teams...now we know or have an idea by the response to the T Wolves...there are talented players in Europe and Asia and there are those players living in the US, and the teams in professional sports need to hire the BEST players, and not try to BALANCE the races...if a black isn't as good...oh well, the BEST players are NOT black...they are the BEST...players !!!!
  • Amen BigRed!
    I live in Mpls. This "story" was in our paper last Sunday. Ludicrous.
    I'm also a Spurs fanatic. We have 9 international players on our roster. I'm not complaining.
    No one batted an eye when three dominant African-American players move to one team (Heat last off season) and then recruit a player (Ray Allen) from another club this off season.
    What is the racial make up of the top teams in the NBA?
    I'm also white...do you think Edwards and Terrell would like to have an equal racial representation rule per team in the NBA?
  • As usual, black leaders want to point to any perceived irregularity as racial bias. The Celtics with Bird, McHale, Ainge et. al. were called "too white" by some, but they won championships. If Minnesota is competitive, then their roster decisions were wise ones. If they only win 20 games, fans will still stay away regardless of the color of the players. Winning is all that matters. The proof will be in the standings.
  • Hadn't paid attention, guess I need to get me a Timberwolves jersey.
  • GM Kahn sold his soul for Batum. He was willing to give anything to get him. Batum is Black. He couldn't sign the Black man and settled for available Whites. His decisions were not motivated by race. (If they were, considering his track record of incompetence, he likely would have signed 14 Blacks.)

    Interesting how so many people are offended by the lightness of the Wolves' roster. When rosters of basketball teams are 90% Black no one cares. When they are 30% Black, everyone is concerned. When baseball rosters were 50% Black, no one cared and now that the percentage is low, Black leaders across America are apoplectic and urging baseball to invest in its Black infrastructure to recruit more Blacks to baseball.

    Blacks dominate football and basketball. No one in the White community complains and asks for proportionate representation on the fields. Whites accept that the numbers reflect athletic meritocracy and root for winners and ignore losers. Others should do the same.

    Kahn is not a racist, he's simply a bumbling GM who has a roster of many Whites. So what?

  • Please get them to draft more blacks to the northern teams and give us a break in the South. Is there enough up there for black on black crime? I remember flying in the Twin Cities and not seeing any Obama supporters and now they are even in North Dakota? What?
