Well, not really about expert basketball commentators, the subject of my post last Sunday, whose commentary continues to steer clear of any speculation as to how Jeremy Lin's Asian heritage affects his play.
But hoo boy, once the story hit the mainstream? Now admittedly there was a lot of "wow, how about that, an Asian-American in the NBA, that hasn't happened for a long time!," which I think is fairly harmless. (If you're interested, the only other Asian-American in the NBA, Wat Misaka, played three games in 1947.)
But we also had this (David Brooks? really?) and this and this (Robert Wright? really?) and this (for which heads will roll -- UPDATE: have rolled) and these. Not even the genius that is Larry Wilmore (though the Tiger Woods jibe is wince-worthy) makes up for all that. Or the not-genius but actually pretty good SNL opening.
