There is a belief held by many that the best basketball players in the NBA are mostly black. However, the NBA has evolved significantly since the time of players like Jerry West and Larry Bird. With the inclusion of European players, white NBA players have made significant progress and some have even outperformed many of their black counterparts. If the NBA ever replaced the NBA All-Star game with the NBA Black vs White game, it would be an interesting change, and here is my list of the top 10 players for each team.
