he NBA would love white america to embrace the NBA after many people stopped watching. And furthermore, it's all about ad sales, and ticket sales, and TV revenue. It ain't just throwback jerseys.
Why do you think the NFL is so successful? It's a great game, no doubt. But a huge part of that is because the two most identifiable positions in the game, the QB and the Head Coach, are predominantly white.
But you're right, I'm the one with a terrible business sense.
The NBA fan on average is from a different demographic. You still cant tell me whose shoes and jerseys are the most popular. Why not? Is it because they prove your juvenile trust wrong?
