In 1992, the world was introduced to the Dream Team, the first American Olympic basketball team made up of NBA superstars like Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, and Patrick Ewing.
Now, 20 years and one 4chan thread later, the “Cream Team” is getting ready to hit the hardwood floor.
As part of Operation White Man Can Jump—a reference to the 1992 film about street ball hustlers Woody Harrelson and Wesley Snipes—4chan’s sports forum, /sp/, is encouraging the community to vote for lighter-skinned players as starters in the 2013 NBA All-Star Game. The suggested players include Lakers point guard Steve Nash, Nets forward Kris Humphries, and Timberwolves forward Kevin Love.
“Lets bring america back to the 60s and vote for an all white NBA all star game,” stated the original 4chan thread, posted to /sp/ on Dec. 1. “Keep votes the same as this, this way we ensure maximum votes. Also some guys are popular to begin with so that will help. The time is now.”
