Well, basketball started out with only whites playing because the U.S. was a white enriched country at the time. However, once African Americans and ethnicities of all kind started coming over to the United States from countries all over the world, the cultural diversity was huge.

African Americans are now a big majority of basketball players, helping the diversity of culture. Many Chinese began picking up the game as well as dozens of European countries, leading to a huge cultural diversity in the game of basketball.
