    Don't discribe white players as heady or smart or African American players as athletic.

    But white players can be referred to as athletic? I don't buy that. If someone's athletic, they're athletic. You shouldn't avoid the word because the guy's African-American. Just because some people abuse the stereotype doesn't mean more talented writers shouldn't be able to use it when it applies.

    It's also not good to spell "describe" with two "i's" :)
