Today in forgiveness. Key quote from fired ESPN employee Anthony Federico: “We didn’t talk about the headline for more than three minutes.” Nice to hear.

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.
Boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. • Taking a swipe at the “Linsanity” that’s cropped up in the past week, when NBA player Jeremy Lin, one of the few Asian-American players the league has ever head (he’s Taiwanese), had a bout of overnight success. Mayweather, as you might guess, faced criticism for his comments, which he later defended: ”Other countries get to support/cheer their athletes and everything is fine,” he said. “As soon as I support black American athletes, I get criticized.” Seems like someone might’ve missed the point.

mrthell says: Regarding the Jeremy Lin blurb, I believe it's actually an NBA record for most points scored in the first three starts of a career, not just a Knicks team record. Super Lintendo stories are actually most-read on the New York Times site right now, too. I can't remember that ever being the case for sports stories at NYT. Linsanity, indeed.

» SFB says: It appears that’s the case; the ESPN story we sourced didn’t make that statline fully clear, but another one says specifically that it’s the highest stat since before the ABA/NBA merger, and that a Knick held the previous record. We’ll update the story. Thanks for the tip. We don’t usually cover much sports here, but we’ve been covering Lin partly because it’s clear that he’s become a cultural phenomenon very quickly. — Ernie @ SFB

Jeremy Lin just outscored the best player in all of basketball for the last decade and more.

With all the crap from the lockout and the shortened season and stuff, it’s nice when a perfectly non-arrogant, in-it-for-the-game guy builds himself up out of nowhere and reminds everyone how great the NBA is.
