In response to this tweet by Floyd for those that didn't know,

"Jeremy Lin is a good player but all the hype is because he's Asian. Black players do what he does every night and don't get the same praise."


Can always rely on Dana for something good to watch

Mayweather does need to STFU. I don't wanna hear another damn word out of his mouth/read another stupid post on Twitter unless it's "I've" followed by "taken the Pacquiao fight."

Man Dana is a idiot to even reply to this. It keeps Folyd in the spotlight as he will likely respond to Dana and there will be an exchange of words.

Not familiar with Lin at all. Is there *any* truth at all in what Mayweather is ( crudely ) saying? As in, is Lin a truly special player or is any of the attention hes getting because he's Oriental? I'm assuming successful oriental players are not common in the NBA, right?

Educate me, my colonist brethren.

Technically Folyd is right. This is lin against my home team, the areana was filled with oriental that night. Lin is the only asian dude in nba history that was not a freak ( yao ming) to be good. People love him for the sotry, but the chinese community is backing him just like any other race would do when one of their own is succeeding.

In Europe, the big football clubs sometimes buy reasonably skilled Oriental/Asian players for one reason: They sell a shit load of shirts in Asia. Whenever an Asian footballer does well in Europe, they go mad for it in their home countries. And I mean MAD. Millions of shirt sales and club memorabilia get sold off the back of it. Because of this, the clubs then publicise and play those players a little more then they would if it was based purely on skills alone. If an Asian player was to come along who was truly world class, ( as it seems Lin is ) he would be gold dust, and rightfully receive a LOT of publicity. Far more then any other world class players in his team. I don't really see a problem with it. When a particular race, who are rarely feature in top level sport, produce a star... it should be celebrated. It *is* a big deal. Ultimately, characters like Lin help to change attitudes.

Why is he so worked up? Also, someone needs to tell Dana that Floyd didn't get the fight because Arum wanted more money, not him.

People do love him for the story. However, he's still a great point guard. Anyone else would have gotten just as much attention had they come out of nowhere and put the Knicks back in the playoff race like he did. Maybe less from the Asian community but that's it.
