Minnesota Timberwolves Are Too White?

 

Apparently civil rights leaders in Minneapolis think so.

Tyrone Terrell, chairman of St. Paul’s African American leadership council, told the Star-Tribune that he thinks the unbalanced roster could be seen as a ploy by the ownership to sell the team to a majority-white fan base.

“How did we get a roster that resembles the 1955 Lakers?” Terrell said to the Star-Tribune. “I think everything is a strategy. Nothing happens by happenstance.”

Is this guy serious?  Before you start playing the race card Tyrone, you should know some facts – Of the 15 players on the Minnesota squad, 5 are black, 5 are European born (all from different countries) and 5 are “white,” born in the US.  Sounds like a pretty diverse team to me…shoot might be the most diverse team in the NBA (white/black aside).  So I say you sit back and enjoy a wonderfully fundamentally sound season in Minnesota and keep your trap shut T. 🙂
