NBA Draft Second Thoughts
I should add that the NBA draft is a complete free market and it produces a better league by discriminatorilly seeking the very best players regardless of race, age or country of national origin. It is color-blind. So are all areas of the arts. There is no affirmative action that looks to undo prior instances of racism or prejudice. It does not compensate for bad childhoods or poor economic roots. Through this open market free from government coercion upon management to hire people based upon their percentage representation within the overall population, the finest product is presented.
Why cannot this principle be applied everywhere?
The message is the NBA does not now and never has considered me professional basketball material from a pure basketball talent perspective. I may have to accept that but it is very harmful to my self-esteem.
