White American and minority in the same sentence doesn’t sound right at all, but they definitely are in the NBA. While you may think there’s plenty of them around, it’s actually a lot of white European players; white American players are shrinking in numbers each year. As of Sunday, there were 43 white Americans on 30 NBA teams with the season starting Tuesday. The Undefeated spoke with Los Angeles Clippers guard J.J. Redick, Houston Rockets forward Ryan Anderson, Chicago Bulls forward Doug McDermott, Memphis Grizzlies forward Chandler Parsons, Washington Wizards forward-center Jason Smith and former NBA guard Jimmer Fredette of the Shanghai Sharks about being a minority in the league. Cleveland Cavaliers forward Kevin Love and Utah Jazz forward Gordon Hayward were also invited to participate and respectfully declined.
