I can remember growing up mixed there was no basketball player I could relate too. All the Black kids would be Michael Jordan and all the white kids would be Larry Bird. It wasn’t till the nineties when Jason Kidd was drafted. Today there are several biracial players in the NBA. In fact there are enough to make a decent team.

Center Joakim Noah
