Who holds Larry Bird's mantle for the best white player in the NBA today? No, Blake Griffin and Steph Curry don't count. Is it Nikola Jokic, Luka Doncic, Kristaps Porzingis, Gordon Hayward, or Kevin Love? What makes a white NBA player great? Is it passing ability, shooting acumen, or big man post skills? The best white NBA players in the NBA right now typically are great at the fundamentals or deceptively quick.  

Yes, since Larry Bird retired there have been very few white NBA stars, but with the way Nikola Jokic has played during 2020-21 NBA season, maybe there is a chance for the first white MVP since Steve Nash. Vote up your favorite white NBA players currently in the league right now.
