I'm not sure whether this has been mentioned yet, but I see EXTRAORDINARY hypocrisy in this move. The Hip Hop movement/culture has profited the NBA in absolutely profound ways. It's embrace of throwback jerseys alone has, no doubt, lined the NBA's coffers tremendously over the years. To now repudiate the culture that it got rich from is, in my view, not only ignorant and bad business, but just plain dumb!
White America has a problem with young black men making millions of dollars. America should deal with that problem and not concern itself itself with how black men want to express their culture.
