Mr. deception led the NBA in total number of steals in January with 39 thefts. Mr. Lin suited up for 17 games in that stretch for a per game average of 2.3 steals.
And Lin has accumulated 27 steals in the fourth quarter this season – oh you know, the most by any NBA player.
I wonder how the media will spin this stat into some model minority stereotypical bullshit that will diminish the fact . My bet is that “Jeremy Lin works hard on defense” or “willing to scrap on the floor for a loose ball” or “studies the mathematical angles and dribble velocity.”
Hooray! I created a new category with this post. I called it “Jeremy Lin Racism.” I struggled to label this category, I wasn’t sure if I wanted to go with “stereotypes” or “racism” or “discrimination” – they’re all so relevant!
