I Still Feel Like Jeremy Lin Doesn’t Get As Much Respect Because He’s Asian

Listen – I get it – his Brooklyn days were more of a “could a” – we’ll never know what might have been – injuries and two years later though – he’s playing pretty damn good and now he’s going to a contender.

And he’s getting paid – $13 million this season – so I’m not saying he’s not getting his due and in that way he gets respect – I’m not saying he doesn’t.

I just feel like he’d get more respect if he wasn’t Asian American – and no I don’t want him to not be Asian American – because we want our people there – but I’m just saying that even now, even though he’s proved himself and been just like a lot of players, who’ve had an injury (although not plagued) – his career isn’t unlike a lot of good players – it’s just the case of an Asian American man having to do twice as much to get the same amount of respect.

It gets tiring.
