I am 6'8" and 285 lbs just like Lebron, I am afraid I won't be in the Hall of Fame because I am white and they did not give me a chance. I thought I was every bit as good as LBJ or better, I should have told them I am part black or just black and leave me the heck alone. I had a 40 inch vertical, ran the 40 in 4.8 secs, bench 320 lbs 15 times, leg press 1,000 lbs and ran the mile in under six minutes. Those numbers are close to Lebron's numbers except I oitweighed him by fifteen pounds but I am only 8% fat and Leberon is 15% or is it 10%. I am closing in on 42 but I think I still can play in the NBA but again the color of the skin and stereo typing is keeping me out. If you you are white they think that you can not jump nor be skilled enough.

I know China has money, smarts and power lot of you are claiming to be Chinese why can't I. You guys are no more Chinese than I am. It is just a state of fantasy or being so I joined the party and called myself a Chinese. I am so non racist that I do not know the difference between black, white ,brown or yellow. But not everyone is like that the NBA wants minorities.
