  2. When I read about this earlier I thought he was talking about fans… But then I realized they’ve been playing in a bubble so it’s a player. And whoever that is deserves to be punished. Severely.

  3. Wouldn’t be surprised if Lin doesn’t want to out them, even tho he def should. His incident w/ Kenyon Martin showed that he’s really a nice guy

  4. As an asian , this shit fucking hurts and is unfortunately more common than people realize

    I remember going to Los Angeles for a vacation and I was the only non-chinese descent on the plane and I remember waking inside LAX and seeing a lot of people just staring at me like I was the odd man out

    People were pointing at the Chinese and some were laughing at them. These were a huge group of tourists on a tour in LA and people were judging them

    Fuck racism

  5. the worst part is people defending it saying “oh it’s just trash talk stop being soft” yea trash talk is fine but trash talking someone in a racist remark is just flat out crossing the line. if you wanna bring someone down bring them down for who they are as a player not for their race.

  6. What fucking idiot would be talking trash to someone who has already had a good deal of success in the NBA while most of these g-leaguers would never sniff that?

  7. As a Korean-American living in the Bay Area and having family who have lived in LA since the 80s, this shit is both extremely hurtful but not at all surprising. I don’t actually think this is something the league can necessarily change, given its a deeply rooted cultural attitude against Asians that causes this type of behavior. It would still be nice for more players to speak out.

    Edit: Lin had just been speaking out against hate crimes against Asians in the Bay Area too. This must hurt so much for him.

  8. I don’t even know why people keep saying Lin is snitching. He posted it on Instagram and the NBA is investigating based on that.

    Anyways, were all you people calling Lin soft or it’s just “trash-talking” also calling Westbrook soft when he gets fans kicked out of games? Especially the one in Utah? It really just seems like people hate that Lin is exposing the fact that there are a bunch of racists out there but some of you don’t mind it cause he’s Asian.

  9. Listen. We got racist muthafuckas in every race. We need to teach tolerance and acceptance. It starts with you reading this message.

  10. people keep saying this will backfire on lin. i bet it doesn’t. this the kind of attitude that made asians take this bullshit for so long.

  11. People on this sub forget how meatheaded basketball players are, especially downplaying these type of incidents as just banter.

    Call anyone out on this sub for it and you get flooded with downvotes.

  12. This reminds me of when Kenyon Martin tried to start crap when Lin had dreads… Only for Lin to point out Martin’s Chinese tattoo lol

  13. If the player who said this was a minority, I really don’t understand how you’re not okay with racism towards your own race but okay with it to others.

    They should know first hand how awful of a thing it is.

  14. As a European it’s so weird to see black people being racist against Asian players while crying about getting indiscriminated themselves and saying “silence is violence” to white people who doesn’t speak for them. But they suddenly forget to talk when it’s Asians. For years now Lin and other Asian players had tons of slurs used against them in games. Not sure who said it these time just talking about overall hypocrisy
