Last night after the NCAA Championship game I was listening to ESPN radio and commentator John Thompson, former coach at Georgetown mentioned how important it was that UCONN's winning coach, Kevin Ollie, was an African American. What the hell difference does it make whether Ollie is black, white, purple or green. He is obviously a very good coach since he was able to coach his underdog team to the National Title. What if Kentucky had won? And if somebody like Dick Vitale had said how important it was that John Calipari was Italian American? Or even said how important it was that he is a white man. He would be fired instantly. Basketball is the sport that gives black coaches more opportunity than any other sport.
