The article is not really about Kevin Love at all, but I was suprised to see how rare white, American born all-stars have become.
"Mullin, who once wore a cheap-Halloween-costume-bedsheet-style ghost outfit for a Sports Illustrated photo (see page 54 of this issue) also represents another vanishing breed: the white, American-born basketball star. Mullin was selected to the All-Star team five times in his career. Since 2003 there have been a total of five appearances by American-born white players in the All-Star Game: Kevin Love (2011), Chris Kaman (2010), David Lee (2010) and Brad Miller (2003 and 2004)."
