White Men Can Jump: All NBA White Men Team

Wesley Snipes and Woody Harrelson team up on the playgrounds of L.A. to hustle all comers. The direction is sharp and the cinematography is surprisingly impressive as the mean streets of Los Angeles are caught with striking camera shots. The under-rated screenplay is intelligent, focused, and clever. All in all "White Men Can't Jump" is far from being a classic, but it is still a fine film that is better than many think.


PLOT: Billy and Sydney think they're the best basketball hustlers in town, so when they join forces, nothing can stop them, except each other. To add to their problems, Billy owes money and is being chased by a pair of gangster types.


As I watched the movie last night in DVD, something sparks in my mind…Most of the players in the NBA from the start till today were all black. And most commonly the leagues all time greats were black. The likes of Wilt, Kareem, Magic and even Michael Jordan were dominant than the likes of Jerry West and Larry Bird, though these two white men are one of the greatest player to land a foot in the hardwood, they were outnumbered by the black ones. With no offense, I said to myself why not I assemble the entire white guy in the league today to form an All Star type, “Non-Black Team”. This team is determined to conquer the hard-court against the black. This is just for fun; I don’t intend to have a race and ethnicity issues about this article. Now roll the slides to find out who had made it to the list… (Don’t be surprised if there were few international players included because they are white skinned; just joking)
