NBA To Assign ‘Adversity Score’ To Pudgy White Guys Who Want To Play Professional Basketball
via The Babylon Bee
U.S.—The NBA announced Friday that for the upcoming basketball season, the league will be assigning an “adversity score” to overweight white dudes to help more of them get signed with professional basketball teams.
The score will take into account many environmental and biological factors, like the fact that they’re white guys who can’t jump and get winded while walking up a small flight of stairs. It will also take into account the fact that they don’t know anything about the fundamentals of the game and tend to shout things like “I’m open! Hey, I’m open!” even when they’re clearly not open. Finally, white dudes who scarf down whole bags of Cheetos daily, drink a six-pack of beer every night, and haven’t exercised in years will receive a “considerable boost” from the new weighted point system.
“We’ve been going about the draft and recruiting new players all wrong,” said NBA Commissioner Adam Silver. “Teams have been objectively evaluating the skills, character, and overall quality of a player when they decide to sign him. They don’t consider all the factors that may have made a person a worse basketball player, such as the fact that he’s 150 pounds overweight, ten years past his prime, and hasn’t played basketball since junior high.”
“This will result in a fairer, more equitable system for all.”
