Ah, my Slavic brother, you forgot about Uljana Semjonova, the big number 10:
She was a female basketball player, from USSR, she never lost a game in official international competition, and she was the first non-US woman enshrined into the Basketball Hall of Fame.
You would like her, cause she has giant feet 😂😂😂15
Volley ball is more international maybe
Basketball isn't super popular outside a few countries.
Black girls play basketball because they had black fathers and brothers who used to break their ankles and post them up haha. Dad didn't take them to the beach, but the courts were probably closer to their house.22
Because the WNBA is racist against whites.
Same for the NBA too, they never promote white players even if they have better stats than the black players.23
What Girls & Guys Said
Culture things in the US I guess.
Here in France girls don't like sports, in class they just sit and are on their phone.
Personally I didn't basketball cause my friend introduced me to it and I like it much more than others sort.
I'm extremely bad at volley only stuff I do right is the serving, I never miss it; i always do it perfectly XD19
Basketball is traditionally a black sport, and volleyball is a white sport. But some black girls play volleyball and some white girls play basketball.14
I think its a bit cultural
Like I've never met a black girl here that go skiing. It seems like black girls dont ski lol11
Part of it is certain sports appeal to different groups more. Another part of it could be that they are better at their chosen sport.10
Possibly more role models? Otherwise I'm probably not qualified to answer as both are minority sports in the UK.10
You win the most retarded question of the day, congrats ^_^11
Put me in a WNBA game and I'll drop a triple double3
Because black people love rap music and basketball.0
I think it's cultural. You don't see many volleyball nets in the ghetto.0
black girls can actually jump, shoot, and dribble.0

It could just be the culture. Because Black people generally tend to be tall, I'd suppose that Black girls grew up seeing a lot of their people, especially men play basketball from a young age and maybe they joined in and grew up playing basketball as well. But in case of White girls when they are tall people are like 'hey u should play volleyball's so that could be the reason, I think. 🤷
I know, but WHY?
Simply because basketball requires tall people and naturally many basketball players have been Black. Black people know this is a sport they can play well so they enjoy it more and play it more, this is why Black people grow up seeing others playing basketball or playing by themselves.
This isn't the case for White people. But I noticed that certain sports that require upper body strength are popular among girls, like tennis and volleyball, because women naturally have weaker upper bodies and playing these sports helps to gain more strength. And volleyball players need to be tall. Maybe that's why taller White girls are encouraged to play volleyball and they do.
In volleyball anything under 6 ft is considered short
Yeah this is why I believe tall girls have been encouraged to play volleyball more.
