Floyd Mayweather on Jeremy Lin: ‘All the hype is because he’s Asian’

“Jeremy Lin is a good player but all the hype is because he’s Asian. Black players do what he does every night and don’t get the same praise.”


HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: Somebody was going there. Thankfully, it was boxer Floyd Mayweather, and not an NBA player.

Mayweather recently tweeted Lin was being praised because he’s Asian, and African-American players do what he does ‘every night’ without getting praised.

Not true.

Perhaps ‘Money’ Mayweather took too many shots to the dome in his controversial win against Victor Ortiz.

Lin is posting epic numbers. He’s the only player in NBA history to average over 20 points and 7 assists in his first four starts.

Best of all, the struggling Knicks have won five straight since Coach Mike D’Antoni took the shackles off Lin and increased his role.
