Everything you're saying would suggest that Dirk should be getting every single call, if this were about revenue.
No, because white players dont sell merchandise. How many white players are in the top ten in jersey sales? What about in shoe sales? How about commercial advertising? None there either? This stuff is marketed to inner city black kids and adults.

I hope that you're not a marketing major because your business sense is awful.
