LaVar Ball: "Slow White Guys" Kept UCLA From Winning The Title

Ok, so LaVar is a nut, as is well known... And I don't really want to be the guy who futilely pushes this sort of point...but...nobody really cares much about assertions like this (me included). Buuut...this counts as racist, yes? Or no?
   Incidentally: is it true? Does it matter whether it's true? Whether or not it's true about this year's UCLA team, does anyone seriously deny that, among the very best players, fewer are white? Even if that were false, would it be racist to think that it was true? Is it sexist to think that, among the best players, few are women?

Nature or nurture? On the one hand, basketball is a game of the inner city: it can be played in small asphalt-covered spaces. On the other, it is the game of the country: it can be played solo, with one guy shooting threes all day, solo. Given this, is it any surprise that whites are over-represented from beyond the arc?
