    Funny. I only see people bitching about Lin fans and Lin.

    It's getting rather petty. The dude was a Rocket how many years ago? We know he worked his ass off and tried his best with us.

    Why do people irrationally hate him is beyond me.

    I don't hate Lin.

    I hate his dogmatic fans.

    Why? I'm invested into the Rockets and the NBa and seem to never run into them or never had issues with them.

    Where do so many people on this bbs encounter them?

    Lin has become a proxy racial issue for people to tussle around. Just like how Americans keep talking about European city crime statistics as a proxy issue for race, immigration, religion.

    Air balls are not racial
    Bad ball handling is not racial
    Lin only fans are not part of the human race
    They are part are of the rodent race

    Police brutality is not racial,
    Confederate statues are part of our country's history.
    Being tough on nonviolent drug crime is not racially motivated.
    etc etc. Same tune, different song.

    What does any this have to do with rat lin fans infesting a rockets site ?

    His stupid fans called clutch racist
    They should be banned from ever coming here for eternity

    Stop acting like a lin fan

    This dude played half a season and helped them achieve the worst record in the NBA

    Race is part of it. racing to the bottom of league

    Don't try to derail this thread into race
    You bend the knee like kapernick

    Especially to a 99er
    The purest form of Rockets fan known to every species on the planet

    Look at his join date
    Joined during the later part of the Lin days of the Rockets
    Look at where he is located

    This is LOF to the T.

    Is that why the website is called "marshallheadphones.com"? lol! I don't think you know what you're talking about. And those Marshall headphones suck...another product marked up in price because of the brand-name. The entire beauty of a Marshall guitar amp is the distinct character/color of the sound...exactly the opposite of what you want in a pair of headphones/studio monitors. For headphones/studio monitors, you want neutral, balanced sound. At least Grado, while distinctive, provide far more balance and neutrality than products like Beats, Monster and Marshall.

    Airemy Lin not on the list of Top 100 players in the NBA.

    Pat Beverley and Isaiah Thomas in Top 50. Goran Dragic also made the list.

    Good news for Nets fans. D'Angelo Russel is in top 100.

    LOFs will join sports illustrated site to complain.
    Try to cancel their parents subscription to magazine and take down their Dad's swimsuit issue hanging on the wall

    I got to admit there are many very hot sexy Asian girls but all the guys looks like geeks and weak. What happened to this race?

    I've reported you. This post has nothing to with the subject or basketball.

    If you don't understand basketball don't join this site

    I don't doubt there are many Lin detractors because he's Asian but let's be real, the flood of ignorant fans that became LOFs is what really set it on fire. All of a sudden, a swarm of rabid idiots showed up calling everyone racist, trashing Lin's teammates, coaches, media personnel, etc. That is how this whole issue came to be. All Rockets fans were excited to have Lin when we signed him. It wasn't until his nut ball fans showed up, desperate to play up his race, their identity with him, and accusing everyone else of being racist that it became an issue. That's what ignited the LOF and ultimately Lin derision.
