I'm not saying that race is the deciding factor... but if you really think skin color means nothing to the Utah Jazz organization, I think you're naive.
I can guarantee you skin color means nothing. There is a higher percentage of white kids that come from more privelaged backgrounds than black kids, I know, big surprise. That's not racism, thats socioeconomics in the US and most of the world. This often translates to the character and bball IQ that the Jazz like.
