Jeremy Lin: The Tim Tebow of Basketball

Meet Jeremy Shu-How Lin, professional basketball player for the New York Knicks, Harvard University graduate, and proudly OUT Christian.  As the first Taiwanese-American to play in the NBA, Jeremy Lin is not shy about giving credit where he believes credit is due.

After shooting the winning basket in the final half second of the game against the Toronto Raptors last night, Lin thanked his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, for helping him make the high pressure shot.

Gee, I wonder if the Talking Heads in the media will trash this Asian-American athlete the same way they lampooned European-American, Tim Tebow?  Betcha not.

Linsanity!

    Sometimes they want to undermine while hoping there will be little notice. I’m sure there are quite a few people who wouldn’t realize that “chink in the armor” is a derogatory and racist phrase. For anyone to continually use the phrase while referencing an Asian is far from coincidence. It is a premeditated, racist slam but that has always been what lurks in the Democrat heart.

    “Twice within a 48-hour period, ESPN has worked in the phrase “chink in the armor” during Knicks pieces on two of its biggest platforms. And they apparently seem so fond of the idiom, that it appears an ESPN Radio anchor on their “SportsCenter Saturday” program used the same term last Saturday afternoon – making it three times on three of their biggest platforms within a week. And mind you, that usage of the phrase was in the middle of the Knicks’ seven-game winning streak, and right after their win over the Lakers, in a game in which Lin scored a career-high 38 points.” http://sportsrantz.com/media/2012/02/18/espn-jeremy-lin-chink-in-the-armor/

    • I agree with you—it was all too much of a coincidence. You’d like to give them the benefit of the doubt and not jump on every supposed ‘slur’ that slips out unintentionally. But I think Rattlesnake was correct–the media Talking Heads did indeed go after this uppity young Asian man who had the temerity to acknowledge his Christian faith on camera.

    I disagree… Leftists are not afraid to insult members of racial minorities that do not conform to their pre-conceived stereotypes (see Herman Cain, Marco Rubio, Sarah Palin, et cetera). If Jeremy Lin is not shy about his faith, my guess is that he will be ridiculed even more than Tim Tebow was, just because he is Asian.
