That's for front office, what sport do you think has the most diversity in it's athletes? I'd have to go with baseball, maybe football.

Soccer is by far the most diversified. No way anyone can argue that.

Baseball probably the most diversified as far as athletes, though Hockey probably isnt far behind. NBA is way back, as is football.

It's not surprising that there are black front office personel given how long the league has been dominated by blacks. Its kind of surprising there are still so few.

Because just about all of Europe is represented. Hockey is just as diverse as basketball really.
