Kahn said the Timberwolves targeted two black players as free agents during the summer. But Portland matched Minnesota's offer to Nicolas Batum, and Jordan Hill opted to re-sign with the Lakers at less money for a better chance to win a championship.
"What if Batum and Hill were here?" Kahn said.

I really don't understand why it's okay for this article to be printed when if it were in reverse, it would cost somebody their job. I am all for racial equality, but racial equality does not equal simply turning the aperture away from racism against blacks to racism against whites. Any time you perpetuate stereotypes that are ethnicity based, you're feeding the same separatist machine that progressive and forward thinking people of all colors are trying to eliminate. Not separate but equal.... just plain equal. I couldn't care less if the Bobcats were all purple if they all pulled their weight. This is worse than an ill-conceived idea for an editorial piece, it's a promotion of an ideology that should have been eliminated a long time ago.
There is nothing wrong with this article because the article doesnt accuse anyone of anything, just points out the statistically improbable roster that the Wolves have assembled this year.
The article even points out that its more to do with Minny going after international players than avoiding black players. Add that to a few random white guys they signed to fill out the bench and you end up with the whitest team since Bird's Celtics
