    Hello Everyone,

    We get a lot of keyword searches for this information. We use to have a link to a site that had an article speaking to this topic, but that site is no longer there and the information is gone too.

    If i remember the article properly, it spoke to the fact that even though much attention is given to the few Brothers in the NBA that have chosen white wives, the majority of our NBA Brothers have not chosen them as life-long partners. I have no idea what the numbers look like now.

    So i'm asking those of you who may know. Which of our NBA Brothers have chosen white wives? Which of our NBA Brothers have chosen black wives? Please feel free to go as far back as you'd like. The athletes don't have to be still playing.

    Thanks for sharing.

    :heart:

    Allen Iverson and Kobe Bryant. My brother said Kobe Bryant's father kinda disowned him or wouldn't talk to him after he married a white female. Me personally yeah I have a lil thing against black males marrying white females. I think yeah when a black male gets famous or big he feels the need to have a white woman because I suppose in this superficial society these days that means you are the "man". Whatever the reason is I think that if they really find luv in that person no matter race then I'm geniunely happy for them, but if it's just for status then I can assume you know what I feel about that...

    i don't believe all that happiness mumbo jumbo...Like for example, When I watched The NBA finals this past week, I saw Tim duncan kiss a white woman...know I don't know if that was his "wife" or whatever but it just....he just lost a lot of respect in my eyes. I believe that all Black men start a type of driving affection for a white woman...after they become well known and famous...Like a white woman is the ultimate "prize" or whatever. Black woman have been the majority of a chosen mate for the black man when he is down on his luck. There are woma of some other races but few. Then when a black man really starts gettin on those feet, he loses sight of the real and decides he needs a prize.... Screw all that. I believe in love but not the type of love that ok, I get famous then I'll skip a black woman and go for a bigger prize....I hate those type of people with a passion and if I was Kobe's father, I woulda disowned him too b/c before there was all that NBA, there was a black woman somewhere ready to hold it down for him......I know there was

    okay Swt T I see what you sayin and I know where you coming from. you know I do believe that in a way Allen and Kobe do luv there wives but somewhere in there I think they feel like they have reached the ultimate goal and that kinda hurts, I mean I have nothin against interracial marriages or relationships, luv is luv. but if it's just for the status... I mean I see sistahs and white men together all the time and vice versa and most of the time I see that they honestly luv each other. my brother is married to a white woman and I know they are honestly in luv because my brother is not an Allen Iverson or a Kobe Bryant and basically I can just see it when they are 2gether. well anyway I don't mean to get all deep in the subject just wanted to voice some of my opinions lol but anyway until next time

    keep flowin

    Allen Iverson's wife is not white...and to say the brother is a thug is a misnomer. Irrespective of the image he projects, the brother is a graduate of Georgetown University, one of the most prestigious colleges in the country...
