sad to say but he might have lost some fans by being white. people like athletes and celebrities they can relate to, and race plays some part in that. even nba analysts do it. every white player gets compared to larry or west or pistol pete. it's stupid. you never here a guy like reddick get compared to say dell curry, even though that's probably what he'll be. instead it's got to be john barry or fred hoiberg. anyway you never know. he could have been compared to west or barry instead of dr. j and lost some people right there. or what if he was from wealth like lambeer. barkley always says that these days ecomomics are as a big a factor as skin color. you can't know, but it's hard to picture it having a positive influence. how many white guys did you know who ONLY watched the nba because of jordan?
