    I can’t even think of a marketable white superstar outside of larry bird...they might be decent for selling more seats maybe...but in terms of sneaker sales...jersey sales...other merch...visible endorsements...I just don’t see it lol

    hes soft shoe c00ning,but since the ones who attend games are mostly white then it makes sense. anytime a non black player starts playing above average the media blows up. Never mind someone like doncic who is balling and if he keeps it up well:sas1::mjpls:

    if this last all star game voting is something to go by then :mjpls: u know

    He’s right and Nikola Jokic and Luka Doncic (Especially Luka)are living proof.

    exactly...I don’t see anybody rocking dirk jerseys or see him in any state farm commercials :mjlol: but no seriously only thing they might be good for is getting extra ppl into seats @ the game...in the NFL white stars are definitely more marketable...not so much in the NBA tho

    That’s not what anyone means by a white superstar. They’re not American, so even then, there’s a disconnect.

    This is common sense.I don't get how people are claiming he's c00ning. People like rooting for folks they can relate to, every race does this.

    You think it's a coincidence that the NBA's Asian fanbase exploded when Yao Ming got to the league?

    Eh many whites don't even support White players like that

    Gordon hayword before he got to Boston wasn't talked about much.

    Besides seats. White people tend stray from their own superstars . Unless they play for their team.

    :hula:
    Try and understand what he meant within context and formulate an intelligent response.

    :yeshrug:It's true, its the reason they're pushing Luka so hard and why Cuban wants to team him, Porzingis and Vucevic together.

    Probably why they’re pushing Luka so hard.

    Tyreke Evans had a good rookie season too.

    The can push Luka all they want and yes it seems all year the NBA has made an effort to push him but the problem is he nor dirk are American born players. When dirk first got to Dallas he could barely speak English. But if Dirk was from Detroit instead of Germany he would be celebrated in a deeper way. Fans love and appreciate him but it's not the same if he were American.

    Years ago Larry Bird caught heat because he echoed the same sentiment about dirk and the lack White American born NBA stars versus foreign ones. Remember about 5 years or so ago, that Florida Gulf Coast school made a deep tourney run was the talk of the nation, not because of their tourney seed, it was because you saw a bunch of white kids dunking like crazy. Same reason people thought JJ Reddikk was hyped to be a superstar, the same reason Jordan took Adam Morrison high..

    I know FOR years the nba always tried to hype the next "Jordan" but really what the nba NEEDS is the next "Larry Bird"..

    I thought luka was a non american white?

    Usually cacs dont push them.

    Dirk would of been bigger if he was american.

    But what stephen said is known.

    Whites owners rather have white stars cause its a segment of whites that dont like to see blacks dominate sports.

    Plus the money aspect
