    Meh.

    Jeremy Lin belongs in New York. I think Chef Eddie Huang put it well.

    Regardless of where Lin belongs he still needs to prove himself. He needs to show last year was no fluke.

     Frankly, I hope he has a whale of a time there.  I’d like to think that he’d have less pressure on him as put on by the media.

    Does this make him a Chinese astronaut?

    I don’t know if this makes him a Chinese astronaut. But some angry Facebook commenters are already calling him ‘Sellout Chink.’

    Ugh.

    It’s New York’s loss and Jeremy’s gain. Melo is a cancer on team basketball and the Knicks are going nowhere as long as he is their centerpiece (By nowhere I mean early exits in the Eastern Conference playoffs, because let’s face it 4 dudes off the street and Melo could make the playoffs in the East with a losing record).  Jeremy, on the other hand, has found a way to make more in 3 years than most people do in a lifetime on largely unproven ability.

    It’s also good news for Chinese counterfeiters who have already mastered the art of the Rockets’ jersey. All they need to do is change the name and the number and their set.

    And weren’t there two Chinese dudes wearing Yao Ming jerseys who did great renditions of Backstreet Boys songs? Yes, there were and it’s full circle, baby!

    i agree about melo. what a loser. can you believe what he said about lin’s contract (called it ridiculous). what a dick. if someone like JR Smith was offered that contract, he would’ve never uttered such bullshit. not exactly a shrewd move by the rockets but you just don’t make comments in public about your colleague’s contract.

    that was funny as hell reading all those angry comments. “yeah, jeremy you sellout chink traitor!!! i would’ve played for six figures in NYC. i would’ve NEVER taken that $25 million contract to play basketball in houston! traitor!!! how dare you want to make money? dontcha know you can live off of food stamps and welfare checks??? you could’ve even gotten free housing! why are you chasing money, jeremy lin?!”
