“Hey, I have a sports team here. I need to hire a former player to lead them. Who was the most talented player to play in recent years?” “Definitely a black or Hispanic guy. At least 10 choices. Maybe 20.” “Nah, I’m’a hire the white guy who couldn’t hit/shoot.” “But you said the most talented..” “Yeah but I realize I wanted someone who could lead, and…” “You should probably stop there.” And thus, Vinny Del Negro/Scott Skiles/Joe Girardi.
