LOL - Spike Lee and Floyd Mayweather on Lin-Sanity

LOL - found this on a ESPN New York Blog....funny how if a white guy had said what Mayweather said there would be a national outrage....but this shows that some guys just shouldn't have twitter accounts....

Renowned director and New York Knicks fan Spike Lee believes in Jeremy Lin.

He wants to make sure Floyd Mayweather does, too.

After Lin's latest heroics on Tuesday night, Lee had a message for Mayweather, the boxer who believes Lin has become a national sensation because of his race, rather than what he's done on the basketball court.

"Floyd Mayweather I Hope You Watched Jeremy Hit The Gamewinning 3 Pointer With .005 Seconds Left.Our Guy Can BALL PLAIN AND SIMPLE.RECOGNIZE," Lee tweeted after Lin hit a game-winning 3-pointer with 0.5 seconds to play against the Raptors on Tuesday.

Lin is the first American-born player of Taiwanese or Chinese descent to play in the NBA. Lin's parents emigrated from Taiwan in the 1970s. A grandmother remained in mainland China.

"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," Mayweather wrote on his Twitter account on Monday afternoon.

Lee fired back with a tweet of his own: "Floyd Mayweather Sounds Like Rush Limbaugh When He Talks About Jeremy Lin Saying He's Only Getting Attention Because He's Asian.WAKE UP YO."

Lin is the first player in league history to have at least 20 points and seven assists in each of his five career starts. The Harvard grad has scored 136 points in his first five career starts, the most by any player since the NBA and ABA merged in 1976. In his last six games -- all Knicks wins -- the 23-year-old is averaging 26.8 points and 8.5 assists.
