J. Lin is not that good, too many turnovers and dumb plays. Too much playground ball. He will do better in China, he does not belonged in America. He is lucky that the Knicks and the Rockets pay him so much money so he can send it back to China.
In China he would just play for a bowl of rice and 1/2 oz of meat. We already have enough foreigners on our teams, we need to use a quota system.

Jerem Lin , Was smart to put himslf on the market after his good season . If not - Do you think Knicks would offer 28 million ? Fat Chance ! Now Knicks pay up or shut up - Hello Dallas ! This is the Real World Ginobili - USA was built on Foreigners contributions . Beyond having extraordinary talent , Lin is Harvard Economics Graduate , Your post reflects your ignorant racist mediocrity ....

The NBA should only allowed Americans to play in it, I mean White Anglo-Saxon Protestants. We were in this country first.

Last I checked, this land we call America had natives on it first and nobody can claim this land as truly being theirs as them so cut the crap Ginobili. "On Point" is correct, this country and civilization is what it is today all due to people alien to this land ie. England, France and Spain. I'd tell you to avoid talking about history and stick with something you know but b-ball knowledge alludes you too and we've all been trying to get you to stop talking ball...

Lin IMO is a lot like Tebow. He's ingratiated himself to the majority with being the underdog or the one who's always been passed over all without possessing all the tools necessary to go with all the acclaim. Lin doesn't need to go to China or overseas and play for stereotypical, racist things but I think it would do him a world of good to stay with NY and learn from one of the best PG's the NBA has ever had in J-Kidd.

Ginobili, not only do I view you as a lying idiot(because of your wild NBA playing claims), you've also shown yourself now to be an ignorant, intolerant racist too. We to own being an overall POS pal.

We were the first civilized people in America, the natives do not count. But anyways at over 7 million dollars per year Lin is not worth it. No one goes and watch a Chinese play BB, he will screw up NYC;s image. What does a Chinese know about BB?

Who's we genius?

$7mil is a bargain by today's NBA salary standards for a player as good as Lin and yea, Y. Ming and Lin are serious draws. Lin-Sanity ring any bells fool?

NY's image? Doesn't a little monument in NY have this to say?

"Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me.
I lift my lamp beside the golden door."

Now who do you think that's directed to?

From what I have read, watch TV and movies the only thing the Chinese are good is food and doing laundry. Watch in London they will get a big spanking. Most high school kids are better than Lin, Stern just put him in because Chinese is an oddity, they watch because it is very unusual for a Chinese to play in the NBA. Wang Zhi Zhi, Yao Ming, Meng and now Lin--all these people I mentioned I could easily outplayed them with one hand.

I am no racist, I just want to place people in their rightful places. Chinese belonged in the restaurant and laundry businesses. Mexicans, blacks,Europeans et al also have their places. Us white Anglo-Saxons belonged in the top echelon.

What I am speaking is the truth, once you see that u will sdee the light. We are the majority in America why should we b the minority in the NBA. I am no racist but them minorities need to konw their place. I am so non-racist that when I was playing ball each stop at NYC I would go to Katz and Nathan's, when in Houston I would go to that former NBA player's restaurant I believe he was 7'6" and his name was Yow Wow Bow Wow and when in New Orleans, I would get me some Cajun Food served by the black bros. But Jeremy really should not get upset at all, he is below average and he is getting over 7 million a year while many of us whites are broke and looking jobs.

I'm white(1st gen. American from England)and 1/4 Asian on my mother's side and I played ball too and this is the TRUTH, white people just have more options in life than black people. There are a lot less white people that have to use sports as their way out of bad situations than black people. So there in-lies the reason professional sports in America is usually dominated by black athletes.

If you're hung up about too many black people in sports start watching hockey, tennis, volleyball, NASCAR, golf(wait, Tiger Woods owns that too), ice skating, ping pong, lacrosse.

People are people no matter the color and we all bleed the same color! Do you really think we would have ever been given the gift of Michael Jordan if the NBA was "whites only"? What about Jerry Rice? What about Pele? Name their white equivalents. Quit being ignorant and just enjoy the show we get to watch and enjoy.
