This is Why he CRIED... How the NBA FAILED Jeremy Lin

In honor of MLK Day this past Monday, I decided I wanted to make a video that goes a bit deeper than the typical NBA video. As I see Jeremy Lin continue to play well on the Beijing Ducks in the CBA, I get a sick feeling knowing he was kicked out of the NBA for reasons far above his ability on the court. Sad to say in the year 2020, we still have a long way to go to treat all athletes equally - regardless of race, gender or sexuality. In this video, I lay out the exact reasons as to how the NBA explicitly failed Jeremy Lin at every stage of his basketball career. Thanks for watching... Subscribe Here!

But maybe this ending was inevitable all along. For no matter how much Lin accomplished, no matter how many doubters he proved wrong, he never was going to get a completely fair shake. Not with racial stereotypes against Asians still so strong in team sports. Just because you’re a pioneer doesn’t mean you were ever truly accepted. Just read the comments from the trolls mocking Lin for opening up on his mental battles, the fight against feeling that the NBA has given up on him." Keywords: This is Why he CRIED...
