Are you sure about that?

We get two ESPN channels: one is in Spanish and the other is usually in English. A lot of times when I watch basketball games, I like to watch the Spanish ESPN because the English announcers annoy me. I was watching a few minutes of the game tonight between the Denver Nuggets and the San Antonio Spurs in English, and I was reminded of why I get so annoyed. The announcers started talking about Eduardo Najara, who plays for Denver and is from Mexico. Bill Walton made this statement: Eduardo Najara is the only hispanic player in the NBA.

There are over 20 hispanic players in the NBA.

There are 9 hispanic players in the playoffs now.

There were 3 hispanic players in the very game he was talking about (Manu Ginobli and Fabricio Oberto are both from Argentina)
