Mayweather is right! that Lin got so much attention because he's asian. If he's black he's just an average basketball player. Take a look at Kevin Durant who scored 30 points per game the whole season with a bunch of buzzer beaters. Durant didn't get much attention and praise as Lin.
because everyone knows durant is a dominant player, a scoring machine..
durant is already a superstar. he made waves as a rookie as well.
Lin is making headlines because his story is inspiring.
from a bench warmer to a starting PG by a struggling NBA team.
the knicks sucked big time until Lin, an undrafted NBA player, who never got an athletic scholarship in college and was always on the 13th-15th place on the roster suddenly became the knicks focal point of their offense...
Lin was even sent into the D league because he never got the chance to prove himself in a black american player dominated hoops league.
D antoni tried to think out of the box because his black american guards were not facilitators.
he gambled on Lin and rest is history. NYK has won six straight since Lin started as PG
now if durant who has won a scoring title already scores 30 a night
won't get real attention since that's what he always does.
Lin average like 2pts a game last season was cut twice by NBA teams
