I suppose it’s possible that you haven’t yet heard about the NBA’s dark horse, the incredible rookie, Jeremy Lin. Aside from his meteoric rise and record-breaking stats since he started, Lin has inspired a number of “creative” headlines. In fact, most of the talk surrounding Lin in the last few weeks has been regarding the sometimes racist puns and double entendres that sports writers have been prone to use when writing about the young star.

Race probably isn’t completely off-limits when talking about one of the only Asian American stars in the NBA, but some of those headlines were definitely out of hand. In the long run, though, I’m sure his performance on the court will overshadow any of this beginning controversy. Have you caught Linsanity?
