like i said anyone who thinks his race has nothing to do with it is a idiot . its an all blk league for the most part why do u think white america is screaming for another larry bird. why do u think white ppl made an only white basktball league. Cause race matters . The fact that an asian dude is balling is a HUGE REASON FOR THE HYPE AND STORE. Floyd never said it was the only reason but a factor . How can u deny that my god u ppl are idiots by pointing that out doesn't make floyd racist just proves he is not stupid .

u know how many ppl at home was like man wow look at this asian dude ball out sh*t crazy . why on espn when they was playing the lakers they showed alot of asain ppl ???? cmon guys u cant be that dumb .

Okay let's end this

You....like so many lack perspective. I've agreed with you in the past in regards to double standards with black athletes...can't agree with you here. You are ridiculously way off

I'll make a parallel. A lot of people now say that the only reason Obama won the presidency was because he was black...which really diminishes how hard he worked. I supported Obama in early 2007...when NO ONE gave a sh*t about him. It was all about Hillary during that time..most people including blacks supported her. Not to mention there were crazy rumors about him being a secret Muslim terrorist and his full name being Barack Hussein Obama*

Then...leading up to the Iowa caucus people start to tune in a bit more. People are listening to him on the campaign trail and like what he has to say, but Hillary is still the favorite. Then he upsets Hillary and wins Iowa. That in and of itself was big news...then in his victory he gives the Yes we Can speech and the entire country gets swept up in the hype. His oratory skills...his demeanor...his contrast to the Clintons in terms of being genuine made a lot of people jump on the bandwagon. Were some blacks excited? Yes, but blacks always support democrats and they were captivated by Obama Himself

Now of course short sighted people looked at his skin color and say people are excited because he was black..that wasn't the case. Being named Barack HUSSEIN Obama and having all those rumors against him did not help. He succeeded because he offered something special and different

Now we look at Lin. A guy that was passed up and looked over almost his entire basketball journey. His skinny stature doesn't help...not looking athletic doesn't help...being Asian doesn't help because many people believe in stereotypes..and being cut several times doesn't help

You now have the Knicks who had HIGH expectations early in the season...but they're struggling. Fans are angry...players are angry...everyone is laughing at the Knicks. Then...some guy comes out of NOWHERE...energizes the team...his personality and grit inspires his team mates and everyone and they win 6 straight while breaking records

And you want to sit here and tell me the hype is because he's Asian? Gtfoh...the hype is because he worked hard and helped a STARVING and struggling Knicks team and now the Knicks may be dangerous

Him being Asian is a side story for people who are racially obsessed...it's inevitable in our racially obsessed country. But his hype and success is not because he's Asian...it's because he's good. And if you think about it...had he been black like many stars out of high school you wouldn't be saying this. You're looking at his ethnicity and adding a flawed theory

Cut the sh*t

Yet this dumbass forgot about the extreme media coverage of Tiger Woods dominating golf and Serena and Venus dominating tennis?

His comments sound bias to me..

Most points in his first 5 starts is a big deal even if he was painted as the blue man group
