NBA has not had a non-foreign white superstar, since Larry Byrd
Why do you expect whites to take interest in a game that is near exclusively black and foreigner?
Blacks/Latins take little interest in the NHL.
What a fascinating post. An enjoyment of the game, a sense of community, a long standing relationship with an organization... none of that could be a reason for being a fan of the sport. The only reason someone would like a sport is if the people who play it look like them. You guys are absolutely incredible.

Then explain why blacks don't like hockey. And I mean where the NHL has existed for 87 years in cities like Detroit, Chicago, New York and Boston.

I have that "NHL" thing spot on. If it's about racism then blacks are racist for not liking hockey.
See how that works?
Take me back to a roster of Archibald, Parish, White, Carr and Johnson with KC Jones coaching and no hip hop crap and I'd be an NBA fan today.
People don't like hockey because it's soccer without the teeth.

That, and people have a tendancy to enjoy sports that are available to them when they are growing up. I bet if your lily white ass was dropped into Birmingam, Alabama you wouldn't find a whole bunch of white hockey fans. And you accuse others of making things about race.

Oh yeah. Those five guys were never on a Celtics roster together.

Right after you explain again why "blacks" don't ski.

You have obviously never watched a hockey game in your life.
Ever heard of the Detroit Red Wings? How about the Chicago Blackhawks? No blacks in those cities, huh?

Parish, Carr and Johnson were. So were White and Archibald earlier. That wasn't the point and you know it.

So you're saying it's about money?
They seem to spend plenty on stuff like sneakers and jerseys. I could outfit a kid for hockey every year with used gear for the cost of three pairs of new Jordans.

I would be a fan of the game, if there was at least one superstar from a background like mine.

I am not going to engage in a conversation of racial stereotypes with you.

Hockey is a very specialized sport in that you need special equipment and a very unique playing surface. If one cannot afford to buy the equipment or if one doesn't live within 20 miles of a rink, it is a fair guess that you won't grow up to be a hockey fan.

Practically every school has a basketball hoop outside of it. It's an economic and geographic issue. I have reason to watch a WHOLE LOT of youth basketball. Those kids aren't wearing Jordan's. There wearing forty dollar shoes.

There's a whole world out there, Fred, that you really don't understand.

You should broaden your horizons a little bit. There are a whole lot of people out there from backgrounds different from yours that are WAAAAAAAY more interesting than you.

Skates, pads, helmet, pants, gloves, a bag and sticks. For a little kid, I could get them at Play It Again Sports for under $300 total. Sticks would be the biggest continuing equipment cost at $40 a pop. But the don't break easily like the old wooden ones.

The NBA is too monochromatic, it needs some of that leftist dieversity, my people are not represented fully...

The high school here has a hockey team, it plays in Strongsville, that's longer than 20 miles.

Every black kid in Columbus lives within TWO to TEN miles of a rink they could skate at. And $300 worth of used gear lets them play.
$40 sneakers? LOLOLOLOLOLOL!!
You are clueless on so many levels.

The exception is the sticks. Other than that, you're right.

The state funds high school football, yute football can be funded by shaking down local business. Youth hockey is funded a similar way, except you can't call a business racist if it doesn't donate.
