I, like most of you saw something in Jeremy during the last Boston game in the first half. His ability to get into the paint and make decisions was sorely needed on this team even at 1/10 the 'rate of Linsanity' if you will. While the fact that he is Asian-American was/is an obvious factor in the growth of Linsanity, most of us were just happy to have found a point guard that can do things that a point guard does, so our* (* = desperate Knick fans) love for him was mostly because of his skills on the court (everything else was a welcomed cherry on top).
Now that he's become a worldwide sports phenomenon, his race has been pushed to the forefront by the gargantuan media machine both in the North America and over in China & Taiwan. Whatever your feelings about Jeremy Lin and his background, the fact remains that he can ball, a lot better than A) most cats in the league, B) we could ever imagine, and C) these media clowns who CONTINUE to get away with sly racist comments about why he's able to do what he's been doing, realizing that maybe he is just that good. Just because we didn't see the whole of "Linsanity" coming doesn't mean that he wasn't capable of it, and his race shouldn't make it more amazing that he's done it. As the old basketball adage goes: If You Can Ball, You Can Ball. Period. Once you step into the court, field, or rink, the only thing that should matter is skills, and he's got a ton of them. That's one of the great beauties of sport, no?
I'm just sick of the racism, man. Just let the kid ball out and be great.
