    Link: Jeremy Lin Sinks 3 Pointer With .05 Seconds Left - Has anyone else been following the NY Knicks` Jeremy Lin? Harvard Grad, first Taiwanese NBA baller, underdog? He`s good.

    Important detail: Jeremy Lin is not the first Chinese NBA player (ever heard of Yao Ming? Also Wang ZhiZhi) - Jeremy Lin is the first AMERICAN NBA player of Chinese heritage.

    And, even if you don`t care about sports, you have to love the story of Jeremy Lin. He was in the Developmental League two weeks ago. Wasn`t even in the NBA.

    It`s not that I don`t like sports, Fancy. It`s not even that I don`t think he is good or that his story is cool. Its that I am SO dratING TIRED OF HEARING ABOUT HIM. Has anybody else been following him? Seriously? You can`t go a half an hour without somebody bringing him up.

    Give it up. It`s just another flash in the pan bandwagon that everybody wants on.

    Lin is fun to watch. And what an amazing feat it is to beat the raptors..........

    i also like how Fancy has to put a disclaimer on his 1 sports post for fear of nerd criticism. You have a Sports section for a reason! Keep showing cool plays please

    Pretty fresh. I like how he just stood there like "I`m just gonna let the clock tick down a bit, then pop this $h!t and go to the house."

    Actually there was 5 seconds left. As long as the ball is in the air the timer no longer matters.

    for it to be .05 he the ball would of had to leave his lands at .05.

    That`s all I know about basketball.

    You don`t have to like sports to appreciate something well done. Basketball sucks, but that 10 seconds kicked ass.

    .05 seconds does not = .5 seconds. You are as bad as that damn phone company that thinks .01 pennies is the same as 1 penny.

    Here`s a question... Why did they stop the clock? It just stopped when the ball hit the basket. I recognize that the Raptors have virtually no chance of scoring in 0.5 seconds off their line, but why did it stop there?

    That is the rule in the NBA, when you score the clock stops till it is inbounded again, at least in the last 2 minutes. In college if would keep running and the game would have been over.

    Sorry, I got his heritage kinda wrong. That said, Lin is an amazing underdog story. Don`t think he`s a flash-in-the-pan. Tebow was a flash with limited talent. Lin has gone up against some of the best (Lakers) and destroyed. He seems to have a full game whereas Tebow only had a half arsenal.

    So he gave up a Harvard education to play sports. Shame, he almost became a productive member of society.

    So, xipuiripat... athletes who generate massive income for their cities and states, entertain millions of people, create loads of jobs and give kids a positive role model are not a productive member of society?

    I`m willing to bet everything I`ll ever own that Jeremy Lin, BEFORE he got famous, was a more productive member of society than you`ll ever be. That`s based purely on your amazing ignorance.

    No, he graduated from Harvard in 2010 with a degree in economics before joining the NBA. Get your facts straight.

    He`s American of Taiwanese heritage, not Chinese.

    Taiwanese IS Chinese, since the country is called the Republic of China. It is a distinct country from the People`s Republic of China. Officially Taiwan is a territory of the People`s Republic of China, called "Chinese Taipei" but as a distinct country Taiwan is still called the Republic of China. Either way, Taiwanese people are Chinese, regardless of whether they identify with the country most people call "China" or not.

    @Lando

    I did. I was saying he wasn`t putting that education to use. I thought it was pretty clear, but never underestimate the intelligence of people on the internet.

    @Nijd: Have you seen how fat football players are? And yes, Michael Vick is a great role-model for the kids. I can see you`re retarded. So there`s that. You should go back to school and try to pass the eighth grade this time round. However try, if you can, to read this: Economics of Sports Teams It has facts and numbers, you know fancy book lernin` stuff, but if you can get through it you will realize how fantastically wrong you are.
