No, you're not linked you ARE a racist and a bigot that believes everyone but white people should be put somewhere else away from whites or just eliminated and that's segregation you tool!
The majority of the owners in the NBA are white already including management and if white guys were better in bball there would be more there too but that's not the case.
I am BTW NOT partial to Lin either way. If he does well great but I don't want to see Lin become the NBA's version of Tebow where he's all hype but no real NBA game.
Go check yourself and your other 2 or more identities back in already.
Gino boy has preaching the same lame quota crap for years. I think someone gave him a karate chop across the noggin and he never recovered. He is always mouthing off nonsense.

Yea, I think a black guy and an Asian guy(separately or together, doesn't matter)beat him years ago.

If you guys claimed to be part Asian, why couldn't I. After all I know just as much about China as you do. China is about the size of where I lived, Calif.

True but knowing Ginobili's mucked up mind he probably fell in love with the Asian dude after the beating.

There's a world of difference between claiming falsely like you do and actually being. I never claimed to be, I am part Asian. There's also a lot more to Asia than just China G.A.S.(ginobili, angela, snowflake).

Just because you got your ass kicked in Chinatown doesn't make you an expert on China and it definitely doesn't mean you're Chinese through way of a beat down.

I was not born Chinese but I know enough about China to be termed a China Expert or China Hand, many in the S.F. Chinatown scene know of me.

Even though JL is Chinese ,he will not make the all star team if the pre-season is any indication.
He look fine in pre-season practices but when the games came around he has been horrible. Full of turnovers and bricks. Has ppl caught up to his weaknesses?

Truth hurt GAS? Don't wanna think about the thrashing the Chinese people laid on you in Chinatown?

Now you're reverting back to pointing out Lin's obvious flaws as the rest of us have been saying forever while you were then trying to to say he was All-Star material period.

Take your phone or a camcorder and video yourself in Chinatown talking as you do on here "big NBA man" telling them how it should be an all white league and civilization and then when you come to, post it on YouTube. Please. Early X-mas for us all.

It's hard to say that Lin won't make the team. Right now he is the best selling NBA jersey in China, and with on-line voting everyone world-wide can vote. Plus, with the elimination of the center position on the ballot, three guards can make the starting line-up.

Marchado and Tony Douglas may start in front of him if he keeps on playing like in the pre-season games. They said he was fine in practices but he seemed to choke in games. I hope he play well and make it big in Houston but so far he has been a disappointment.

You make a valid point. If it was based in coaches and players he would be left off for more deserving players, but that's not the case so you are probably right Espically since Lin did a China tour in the offseason.

I understand the voting system and I know Lin has got a massive following overseas as well as here in the states but just because you got voted in doesn't mean you're the best candidate and if Lin continues on not improving yet still gets to be an All-Star they should revisit the voting system.

What race you are and how popular you are shouldn't grant you an automatic "in" especially if there are dozens of players better than you.

If Lin does happen to get voted in while playing like ass he should concede he's undeserving and withdraw himself and allow another to play who does deserve it and watch his star go crazy high.

There should be qualifications for each position. Like averages of no more than x turnovers or must average X assists. Or they could give coach and NBA AP votes that are worth far more than fan votes
