"I like fixing broken things" - Kevin Plank
this will be the 10+ turnover game for lin it seems
Baron is so bad
add steve novak's name to the title plz
The Heat can get the 1 seed playing on cruise control. Once they get into the playoffs and ratchet up the defense like this, they cannot be beaten.
No clue how the Knicks are down 4 right now
we called the twolves game a tebow game for lin, this would truly be a tebow game for him if the knicks could pull it out
Why are there so many empty seats?
Did you guys catch Birdman courtside?
it's over because a supermotivated version of the league's best team made it their mission to personally stop linsanity
Will Lin's star fall as fast as it rose?
He looked horrible out there tonight.

"CHINK": Pejorative; do not use in a context involving an Asian person on someone who is Asian American. Extreme care is needed if using the well-trod phrase "chink in the armor"; be mindful that the context does not involve Asia, Asians or Asian Americans. (The appearance of this phrase with regard to Lin led AAJA MediaWatch to issue statement to ESPN, which subsequently disciplined its employees.)
DRIVING: This is part of the sport of basketball, but resist the temptation to refer to an "Asian who knows how to drive."
EYE SHAPE: This is irrelevant. Do not make such references if discussing Lin's vision.
FOOD: Is there a compelling reason to draw a connection between Lin and fortune cookies, takeout boxes or similar imagery? In the majority of news coverage, the answer will be no.
MARTIAL ARTS: You're writing about a basketball player. Don't conflate his skills with judo, karate, tae kwon do, etc. Do not refer to Lin as "Grasshopper" or similar names associated with martial-arts stereotypes.
"ME LOVE YOU LIN TIME": Avoid. This is a lazy pun on the athlete's name and alludes to the broken English of a Hollywood caricature from the 1980s.
"YELLOW MAMBA": This nickname that some have used for Lin plays off the "Black Mamba" nickname used by NBA star Kobe Bryant. It should be avoided. Asian immigrants in the United States in the 19th and 20th centuries were subjected to discriminatory treatment resulting from a fear of a "Yellow Peril" that was touted in the media, which led to legislation such as the Chinese Exclusion Act.
Read 'Asian American Journalists Association releases guidelines on Jeremy Lin media coverage' from our blog The Cutline on Yahoo! News. Given the media's surrounding Jeremy Lin, perhaps this was inevitable. Following (justified) outrage over several examples of racially-insensitive coverage of Lin--including a headline published by ESPN.com which resulted in the firing of one staffer and suspension of another--the Asian American Journalists Association has issued a set of guidelines for media outlets salivating over the [...]

Can't believe no one made the "Well, it looks like Lin did not take his talents to South Beach tonight" joke
So tell us your thoughts on African-Americans?
