Chamberlain says hi too.
People are mixing up what the media portrays him as and what his actual demeanor is
Really reminds me a lot of Tim Tebow at the same time, you have to wonder if these guys want the attention they are getting.
But on the other hand Lin has a huge contract that he signed. If he doesn't think he can handle the pressure and live up to it he should ask to be opted out. The public eye and words come once you make money like that.
Lol it's because he's junk.
Magic. Red Sox. Colts. Knights.
Unreal. Shut and earn your money or admit you suck.
6/27/09: “We expect [Rondo] to play by the rules and be a leader as a point guard. We need him to be more of a leader,” Ainge said. “There were just a couple situations where he was late this year, I don’t know if he was sitting in his car, but showed up late and the rest of the team was there. We have team rules and you have to be on time. He was fined for being late, he said he was stuck in traffic, and it’s just unacceptable.”
Some jerks never learn.....
What Lin said was true. I can definitely relate to him. I was a Filipino American military kid. I moved around a lot. I would start myself on the bench then when they saw I could play during garbage time and blowouts, I'd get playing time. This happened 5-6 times when joining a new basketball team. I kept having to prove myself every time I went to a new basketball team. People are ignorant and stereotype others based on skin. I've been called Chinese freak and chink by opposing teams and fans. Racism is still alive unfortunately.

The future is present.
No, they criticize you because you're garbage
Boogie Cousins for MVP 2015
Standing on Sacred Ground
When the season starts and the blatant homerism subsides, people will realize the 2 biggest flaws on our team. MAYBE??
Lakers cut him
Hou cut him
Mike d put him in the d league
After the Knicks lost all there crappy pgs, Lin had to play. Lead ny to the best run under mike d after we lost 12/13. Now he's a starter and getting paid.
Race had nothing to do w that? Give me break.
lol ahh the good ol' race card. it's funny because it's probably a big reason why he got the contract he did. houston knows what it's like to have china's support from ming's time there, so they overpaid for lin because of all the merchandise sales and popularity he has from china. nobody cares that he's asian, he's just not as good as he was made out to be during the whole insane linsanity faze. the bar was just set too high and now the backlash is coming and he doesn't like it.
