According to sports groupie, Stiletto Jill:
Floyd posted on Twitter Monday night that the only reason why Knicks breakout star point guard Jeremy Lin is getting attention is because he’s Asian. I’m going to attempt to play advocate for Floyd for a second. There are a very small number of Asians in the league. That’s true. Obviously Yao Ming was a superstar. There was Wang Zhi-Zhi, Sun Yee and maybe a handful of others.
I agree with Floyd and Jill. I'm glad I don't live in New York where the media overhypes everything. I watched Lin play and I don't see the big deal. He is a typical ball hog who misses more shots than he hits, rather than passing the ball to the open man.
Judge a player by his season stats, not over 6 games against weak opponents.
