Before the NBA lockout ended, SportsNetworker compiled a list of the â€œTop 10 Sports Business Professionals To Follow On Twitter,â€ highlighting individuals at major sports entities who will keep their followers abreast of the latest industry news. The list was diverse in that it included both men and women, however, none of the candidates were of color. Since the 2012 NBA season tipped off on Christmas Day, BlackEnterprise.com decided to compile a select list of Black professionals from sports media, marketing, public, and community relations that may have been overlooked. If youâ€™re a basketball fan looking to keep your ear to the tweets, here are 10 sports business professionals of color to follow on Twitter. â€”Mia Hall
