A day after Manny Pacquiao's rival Floyd Mayweather tweeted that Jeremy Lin's popularity and hype are solely products of his Taiwanese-American heritage, Pacquiao shared his own view of the Knicks' point guard on Twitter. 




The WBO Welterweight Champion could be sharing his view based off his own Asian heritage (Pacquiao is Filipino, and in fact serves in the Phillippines' House of Representatives. He could also simply be firing back across the bow at Mayweather.

Or, maybe he's just a Knicks fan.  

Lin continues to cross cultural boundaries beyond the NBA into mainstream culture, and the effect is staggering. More on Lin and the incredible story of how this has taken the world by storm Tuesday on CBSSports.com from Ken Berger.  Be sure to check out Gregg Doyel's column wondering how in the name of everything Lin slipped through so many cracks.

And this makes news in the Tweet world. How pathetic. This is about as new worthy as me saying I ate a bowl of beans last night and today have gas. Who cares. I get the feeling that CBS employs 10 losers just to troll through all of the worthless Tweets for something little nugget of anything and attempt to build a story around it. If you have nothing to say (or print) CBS, just shut up and say nothing.

Wow. Does CBS have editors? Do these writers proofread their work before posting them?

The NBA and the basketball media need Jeremy Lin. Jeremy Lin is their saviour. This was a subpar season struggling with post-lockout problems and repercussions until the Jeremy Lin story came along. And now, in a little more than a week, Lin has wiped out all the ill-will both sides deserved for the lockout and is helping them internationally post-Yao.

Why is the media reporting what 2 boxers think of Jeremy Lin?  Is it really that slow of a news day?

Floyd Gayweather is a wife beating piece of crap coward. He knows Manny would destroy him that's why he's been ducking Manny for years.  What are you scared of Floyd? Get in the ring with a real fighter.

matter of time before a real player corners lin in the shower and shags him silly, resulting in the latter's use of crutches for the rest of the season.
