I am a Lin fan for life, but Kobe is still the king imo.

Kobe is arguably the one of the greatest if not the greatest player to everr play in the NBA. I could never wear a shirt like that.

With the rise of Jeremy Lin, I hope there's no more Asian "profilin".

If NBA team scouts looked at a basketball player's skill set, instead of their race or colour of their skin, maybe there would be more Chinese guys playing in the NBA some day.

Why the hell not? Seems more rewarding and worth while to after all the linsanity hype if anything.

My guess is that older scouts tend to stick to what they know and worked in the past?

The problem with NBA scouting isn't that they're disregarding anyone who isn't black, it's been the fact that scouting styles change every few years.... For example the scouting in the early to mid 2000's (Yao, Nowitzki, Ginobili era... ) it was overseas fever, every team was trying to land some kind of European or international superstar.... So that time was the height of Asian imports like Yao, Wanh ZhiZhi and Yi JianLin... but in the last few years they've specifically been looking for physical features like wingspan and length mostly for defensive and rebounding capabilities.

Obviously young black males fit this profile almost exclusively so that's where every teams attention is right now, most if not all teams have gotten past that *must find international star phase* which was actually pushed as an agenda to globalize the game further by David Stern the commish, and now they're back to homegrown talent almost exclusively.

The thing that impresses me about Lin is that every Chinese player that's been in the NBA has been a physical specimen, tall, huge, skilled.... And Jeremy Lin does not fit this description so its even more amazing...
But there was 1 exception to this and I remember it well and for the hoopheads, I gotta say this definitely reminds me of Yuta Tabuse who bounced around on a few NBA teams, and was always solid, and this fckin guy was 170lbs and 5'10 with shoes on! I remember when I first seen it I couldn't believe I was watching an asian guy who wasnt around 7 feet playing in the NBA... he first showed up in Phoenix in the early 2000's, so even then it was still crazy seeing Asian players in the NBA, but to see one of his stature holding his own was crazy
