Not every athlete is caught up in the Linsanity.
Unbeaten boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. has posted a swipe at the New York Knicks’ point guard sensation on Twitter.
Mayweather posted on Monday: “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.”
Lin has led the Knicks to five straight victories, including a 38-point game against the Lakers.
