To underscore the "whiteout" of the NBA, "Outside the Lines" chose to follow the trials and tribulations of Kyle McAlarney, a former standout point guard from Notre Dame whose dream is to play in the NBA. According to McAlarney, his race is keeping him out of the league.


No, you're simply NOT GOOD ENOUGH TO COMPETE at the NBA level. Try Europe.

Wasnt there a report back in the summer about the Pacers having more white players then black? And people accused Larry Bird of only wanting white guys?

How dare you say he isn't good enough? Don't you realize that this is the day in age where everyone is good enough, and everyone wins, and everyone gets a trophy?*

The Pacers have 6 white players and 9 black players on their roster. That is a lot of white players on one team but they can actually play.

The racial balance of the league has been roughly the same for a long time. It's just that the white players are increasingly European.
