    I mean it has some validity

    There are some flagrant fouls that a pretty obvious

    Not sure why its being dismissed, maybe of the way he plays, like a headless chicken at times...

    Not a surprise to Rocket fans, we saw how many times he would get busted up when he played for us, some players have it out to foul him hard because he's asian.

    Well, i still remember (and hate) Violet Palmer for calling a lot of bs against Yao...this actually reminded me one game where she made a couple of terrible calls on Lin too...

    1. Flagrant foul no calls
    2. dumbass superfans

    One thing has nothing to do with another.

    To link the two just shows an incapability to separate objectivity from personal feelings.

    I like Lin, but maybe he should stop driving in so recklessly al much and play smarter?

    Some of those non called flagrants are unbelievable. Carmelo you punk.

    Jeremy Lin is relentless.

    Staying up all night while her family sleeps to make videos of Jeremy Lin. LOL That's a hardcore LOF there. Are there a lot of Hornets fans in San Jose? :grin:

    The game after it was posted to reddit and blew up, Lin got to the line like 10 times in the first half, lol

    And this was after the nba sent her a relatively dismissive response via email.

    Try telling me again that refs aren't biased

    It is a race thing, guys have been beating up on him since he got in the league, they don't respect him it seems.

    Same thing happened to Yao until he started slamming on their heads.
