NBA: White American Players Talk About What It’s Like to be a Minority in the League

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.

(Photos) NBA: JJ Redick Is Tired Of People Complaining About KD Going To The Warriors

While many fans are still upset about Kevin Durant’s decision to leave the Thunder and sign with the already loaded Warriors, players themselves aren’t upset at all. Sure they might be mad that it will take a miracle to beat a team like that in the playoffs but they all support Durant’s decision to do as he pleased as a free agent. The entire point of free agency is to give a player some power since for the most part the power always lays in the hands of the owner. JJ Redick of the Clippers is one person who should be mad, considering his team will have to get through the Warriors if they want to reach an NBA finals but he is actually tired of the criticism KD has been receiving and broke down some facts on twitter.

NCAA: JJ Redick Blames the Media For Vilifying & Creating Hatred Towards White Duke Players

Duke is one of the most hated schools in college basketball.  There’s been a growing dislike against the Blue Devils and the white players they have.  Think back to Michigan’s Fab 5 against Duke and it’s pitted as black underprivileged players trying to make it against white privileged players.  JJ Redick, who at one time was a controversial Duke player, opened his podcast posted on Monday with a discussion about the allegations of Grayson Allen being a dirty player. He questioned why there’s always someone that we as a whole insist on disliking on the Blue Devils every year.

Last July a story came out about JJ Redick having an abortion contract with his  ex Vanessa Lopez.  Yes, this is the same groupie woman who was Shaq’s ex-mistress and she tried to sue him but lost.  Well now an email from JJ calling Vanessa some racist slurs has leaked. This definitely isn’t a good look for JJ.  SMH.

(Video) NBA: JJ Redick’s Hilarious Reaction After DeMarcus Cousins Snubs Him on a Handshake

I think it’s pretty clear that DeMarcus Cousins isn’t fond of the Los Angeles Clippers.  After their loss to them last week, Cousins stopped Isaiah Thomas from shaking hands with Chris Paul.  Well on Friday night the Kings lost to the Clippers yet again and this time it was JJ Redick who reached out to Cousins himself for a handshake.  Of course the results weren’t positive.
