This headline was up for 35 minutes before it got pulled. Really? They can't think of anything else to describe Jeremy Lin's performance? Not clever, not witty, just straight up RACIST. Hard to imagine out of all the possible combination of words in the English language this is what they came up with.

Getting weird with Krang at my apartment. This is the Krang from my actual childhood. He was at one point a pencil topper and he somehow managed to make it to New York with me. A testament to my hoarderness- do not forget Krang while moving 3,000 miles away from home! Background wise, painted a card tonight for a very special someone.
Saw a dude on the street today with these "ombre" jeans. It was gross out- raining and cold. But these dudes pants were on fire! Could not resist but to ask him for a photo of these treasure trove leg coverings. I want these pants in every color they can dip dye them in.

Exerpt from NPR article, "Looking for Lin In All The Wrong Places" by Frank Deford-
Now it's wonderful for Jeremy Lin that he finally got his chance. It's wonderful for fans that we got a lovely surprise. It's wonderful for Asian-Americans that they've got a new athletic hero. It's even wonderful for the Knicks, who don't deserve it, because their owner is the biggest creep in professional sports.
But what is so disappointing is that Lin finally was given his opportunity only because about a half-dozen weird happenstances happened to occur — the owners' lockout, salary-cap manipulations, trades that fell through, injuries and, at last, a coach's sheer desperation. Talk about divine intervention.
But, in counterpoint, what is so dispiriting is to contemplate not only how many basketball players, but how many other athletes, how many artists and actors and musicians and writers, how many special creative talents never get fulfilled because the so-called experts are always looking in the same places.
Jeremy Lin is a success, and hooray for him, but his example tells us that there are, surely, so many more brilliant might-have-beens in our midst who never get a chance.
And that's the sad part to such a happy ending.
Exerpt from NYT article, "Jeremy Lin's Grandmother Watches, Along With Taiwan" by Keith Bradsher-
"While in the car, Lin’s uncle volunteered his views on one of the most contentious questions on the Internet about Jeremy Lin and his family: whether they are Taiwanese or Chinese. “For sure, they are Taiwanese,” Lin Chi Chung said. “I spoke to Jeremy Lin’s father, who is my younger brother, and he said, ‘Make sure you point this out.’ ”
