That would imply that on their part they are using some common sense, but if there idea is a league that represents and looks like the majority of the ticket buyers, then yes I can see them making the league more white. You would still have your black "All Stars" because they bring in the bucks, but what about the guys sitting on the bench, the role players, as long as they are plenty of big name black stars, why couldn't all the support role players be white. After all you don't go to the game to see the guys sitting on the bench, in fact most people probably couldn't name some of those guys.
That's a good point too. I don't have a problem with the leauge wanting the players to look professional, but I think it's natural to question their motives. Plus, is it their job to say what the guys must wear when they're not on the court?
