Somebody Quick, Sucker Punch Floyd!

"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," Floyd Mayweather wrote on his Twitter account.  That tweet makes him sound like a retard! I think Floyd should have done a little bit of research before he started tweeting about Jeremy Lin. Look Floyd, the hype around Lin is not only because he is Asian, it is because the guy is playing some very good basketball. This is just one of Floyd's ways to get attention. On top of the fact that he is playing great basketball, he is playing on one of the biggest cities of the NBA. It is not like Lin is the first Asian to play in the NBA. There was once a player by the name of Yao Ming. Lin is one of the successful NBA players to come out from the Ivy League. When people hear of players that come out from the Ivy League, it almost a joke. Ivy League schools do not produce NBA players, not good NBA players anyways. Lin is a underdog story. He was not drafted, got cut twice, picked up by the Knicks and was sitting at the end of the bench, and almost got cut by the Knicks. And now, the Knicks are riding a 5 game win streak without Carmelo and Amare. This kid can ball! 

On the other hand, Floyd has not fought anyone is who is comparable to Manny Pacquiao. He is to busy trying to preserve his perfect record, that he has not fought any boxer who is relevant. I can not wait for the day someone KO's Mayweather. Let's see if he is still going to have a big mouth.
