I just read a very good ESPN.com column by J.A. Adande. Basically, he lays to rest any claims that the Celtics are a black un-friendly franchise. This got me thinking...
First, are there teams out there that are still hung-up on these kinds of things? One thing I have always loved about my Giants is that they are very interracial and always have been (you know... since they let black people play). Can there still be pro sports teams out there that hire players based on their ethnic background? Probably the Mets... Maybe the Padres... Red Sox?
Secondly, why is it that certain teams never change? Think of the Yankees. They basically always acquire the best talent and spend gobs of money. The Bears = Run-Defense. The Steelers = Run up the middle + Run-stop Defense. The Cubs = Lose as much as possible. Celtics = Win a lot
What is your opinion?
