    Why is there no statue of Raymond Felton passing?

    Shouldn't the Jeremy Lin statute be on a cross?

    He is very popular in Taiwan...

    Partly because he identifies as Taiwanese and not Chinese,
    ie. the country Taiwan vs China.

    China has always maintained Taiwan is part of China
    but Taiwan has a different opinion.

    I think China would have invaded ages ago if not for America
    standing behind Taiwan.

    Not sure how much longer they can hold out.

    With a statue that size... they might as well make it into an action figure.

    The western coast of Taiwan, from what I've read, is very unfavorable for invasions. Long, low, muddy, and unpredictable tides. This has also factored against an invasion by mainland China forces.

    Can't help but think I'm regurgitating facts from a Larry Bond novel.

    Odd statue, maybe im seeing it wrong but the ball next to his foot sort of makes it look like a soccer statue.

    i don't think he ever took a stand on that. in fact, he mentioned numerous times about his chinese heritage. been to a church that JLin went once because there is a guy there converted JLin's dad. they are all very traditional chinese. these type of churchs are full of mainland, taiwan, and hong kong chinese. very smooth relationships. so pretty sure you are wrong about that.

    Guys, guys, you're both idiots for trying to incite a political fight that has potentially nothing to do with you. You both may or may not be Taiwanese/Chinese (don't want to offend anyone ;)), and if you are, then good for you. But honestly, you shouldn't care THAT much about a country you probably don't live in. #1, if you're Pro-Taiwan, Taiwanese people that LIVE in Taiwan are idiots, because they want to rejoin China because they voted that way because the dumb politicians paid citizens to vote for them. #2, Chinese are also stupid because they've got missiles pointing at Taiwan as if they're going to fire them. Trust me, I've dealt with these two opposing sides for a long time, and it's not worth your time.

    What is that, a statue for ants? It needs to be at least 3 times bigger.
