yeah, sorry.....he was talking about racism faced at Harvard when they played on the road ...signs....people using slurs,etc

Him not getting a d 1 scholarship isn't an example of racism...with his grades he could have enrolled and tried to walk on at Stanford, Vanderbilt,etc

former superbowl MVP Aaron Rogers walked on at Cal if I'm not mistaken because he got no major college offers.....so it's a reach to say that somehow Lin deserved a d-1 offer

But he should be judged on his contract. and relative to that he sucks. he's getting benched in favor of toney freaking douglas.

To be fair, Douglas was having a helluva night, shooting wise and he ended up with, what, 22 points?

Asik was benched the entire 4th in that same game. Asik sucks.

What is a Nikon?

I guess my point was more that his "racism" faced is just inconvenience. I think a lot of what others faced is far more than inconvenience. And for that reason when i hear Lin and Racism i just think it's overblown.

When i used to play ball on the courts with the mostly black kids i took huge amounts of shit. That's just how it is. It never was something i'd describe as "Racism"

thAt wAsn't the first time lin wAs benched for douglas. it's hAppened 3-4 times. this wAs the first time they reAlly benched asik and i think it wAs becAuse they didn't wAnt the lakers to respond to hAck-an-asik in response to hAck-a-dwight. also they didn't need asik's defense since they were fouling d12 anywAys.

Lin wasn't benched because he was playing badly. I mean, he wasn't exactly a factor but he got into foul trouble early and then Douglas was hitting every shot he took so sampson left him in. Somewhat simliar situation with Asik and Smith, who ended up with 21 pts. I think he left them both in because of a previous game (can't quite remember which at the moment) where Houston's bench was playing well into the 4th and then sampson put starters back in and they ended up losing.

This is exactly why US Asian women don't date Asian men. Of course Lin could because of his money but it is this mentallity. They are "effeminate whiny babies." I put that in quotes because I have heard many Asian women describe them as such.

Lol wtf does this have to do with the vid? I suppose you didn't watch it. Pretty obvious he was being asked about his experiences with racism.

We gonna act like he wasn't in foul trouble? Expecting to take a charge from Kobe was dumb tho.
Is there something wrong with your "A" key or are you trying to send some subliminal message?

foul trouble = his own fault.

plus i posted the amount of time he played so it doesn't mAtter. 4 points 3 assists on 2/8 shooting in 20 mins is abysmAl for a stArting pg.

And yes my A key is ****ed up.

Jeremy Lin is Martin Luther King and Jackie Robinson rolled into one, for Asians.

Asians don't date each other in the US because they are followers who have no opinion and fail to think for themselves. They just go with the flow and do whatever is popular.

I didn't watch the video so someone post the cliffs of it.

Video was about his experiences with racism during college ball. Pretty sure the interview was from before the start of the season, so it's not related much at all to recent struggles.

The NBA is extremely racist against any player that isn't black. Anyone saying otherwise is either retarded, a certifiable nut, a liar, a racist, or most likely, is all of those things.
