Nike is introducing a new shoe called Nike+ and the shoe can measure your quickness and vertical. That's pretty innovative and cool but I wish they had this on every shoe. Who is going to buy this shoe though when it costs $250?

The shoe will be out in stores this summer.

ESPN's racial slur on Jeremy Lin

 Here is the screen capture of ESPN's "Chink in the Armor" headline to describe Jeremy Lin's performance last night vs. the Hornets. Is that racist?  Hat tip to SB Nation for posting about this on their website.

Below is also a video of the ESPN anchor using "chink in the armor" to talk about Lin on the air.

This isn't the first time that ESPN has used "Chink in the Armor" as you can see here.

Jeremy Lin in high school beating Mater Dei to win title

Check out this highlight video of Jeremy Lin dominating in a high school championship game and upsetting the top team in California, Mater Dei.

<a href='http://www.foxsportswest.com/pages/video?videoid=1520461a-97cb-423f-8da3-8c7ef36f5270&src=v5:embed::' target='_new' title='Before Linsanity'>Video: Before Linsanity</a>

Fans and media doubt Jeremy Lin because he is Asian

Jeremy Lin has shocked the sports world in six straight games and the media is still questioning his legitimacy.

They are both jealous and ignorant about Lin and his skills. There is also probably a tad of racism involved as well.

I am sure many fans and members of the sports media wish that what is happening to Lin was happening with Sacramento Kings' rookie Jimmer Freddette instead.

Fredette is white and Lin is Asian. I still remember when all the sports analysts and members of the media were going gaga over "The Jimmer" when he was doing good playing for the BYU Cougars last year. They wanted him to be the next Larry Bird and the next "Great White Hope."

If Lin was white or Black, no one would call him a fluke and question how legit he is.

The reason Lin is not a one hit wonder is because he has all the qualities you need to be a solid point guard in the NBA.

Lin has the quickness and speed to blow by defenders as well as enough strength to absorb contact and still make a shot in the lane. He has great court vision and a high basketball IQ.

Another key is that Lin is fearless. He is not scared of the big moments or of getting hit and fouled hard when he drives to the hoop. He is not a timid player and is willing to take the contact in the lane.

When I hear former players like Magic Johnson say that he is for real, it validates what I already knew about Mr.Lin. The guy can flat out ball.

Last night, I heard ESPN NBA analyst Tom Penn say that Lin is not Chinese. I then went on Twitter and saw CNBC jouranlist Darren Rovell tweet this -

"What remains to be seen is how China will embrace Lin given their tension with the Taiwanese."

That was another ignorant statement from a member of the media. When I told Rovell he was ignorant, he tweeted back to me saying that he talked to people in Beijing about this. I couldn't help but laugh at his reply tweet to me.

ESPN hockey analyst Barry Melrose even chimed in last night about Lin and said he needs to see Lin do what he's doing for 60 games and not six.

People just can't believe an Asian man can do so well. They don't want to believe it and can't fathom how a Chinese player who had to listen to racist slurs throughout his college days at Harvard dominate the NBA.

I sense some jealousy from ex college and NBA players on ESPN such as Tim Legler, Bruce Bowen, and Doug Gottlieb. They probably feel they could be doing what Lin is doing now if they got more playing time and more minutes.

They are wondering how this Asian guy can be so good? They believe it can't be real and it has to be a fluke. I don't understand how the media can compare him to Rudy from Notre Dame or Tim Tebow.

Rudy was a walk-on for Notre Dame while Tebow was known by a lot of college football fans even before he was recruited by Florida due to his high school football exploits.

The reason that Lin didn't get recruited heavily was because he is Asian. The only Asians that get recruited and offered NCAA scholarships are the ones from overseas that are over 6'8 tall.

Recruiters and college coaches just don't think that an Asian American can play Division 1 basketball.

In George Dohrmann's book about AAU basketball, an AAU coach says "I don't do Asians" meaning he doesn't have Asians on his team. His reason for this is because Asians just don't grow to be as tall as white and Black players.

At Harvard, Lin had a lot of racist slurs directed at him from opposing teams' fans who told him to go back to China and chanted "Won Ton Soup" and "Open your eyes."

I hear everyone say that "no one" saw this coming. I live in the Bay Area and I have heard of Lin since his senior year playing high school ball in Palo Alto. I realized he could play and do well in the NBA when I saw him play well against Boston College and UConn in his senior year.

Many fans in San Francisco have seen him compete and dunk at the San Francisco Pro Am League a few summers ago as well. Lin may be an unknown to a lot of people in America but he wasn't an unknown in the Bay Area.

I saw a highlight of Lin making a game-winning 3 pointer against William and Mary as well. The guy was a leader and a good passer who was unafraid to attack the rim.

I started to tell people that Lin would play in the NBA even though he probably would not get drafted. Everyone laughed when I told them this and most had never heard of Lin until I mentioned him.

Even a lot of Asian guys that I played with in pick-up basketball games at the gym did not believe me and many of them were saying that they were going to be the first Asian in the NBA.

When Lin signed as a free agent with the Warriors, I knew he was making a huge mistake since Monta Ellis and Stephen Curry get all the playing time there.

Lin had another problem when the Warriors signed Acie Law to compete with him for backup minutes when Ellis and Curry would need a short breather. Keith Smart, the coach last season, insisted on playing Law over Lin much to the dismay of the Warriors' fans.

It was a blessing in disguise when the Warriors cut Lin. He signed with the Houston Rockets after that but he was going to get cut after training camp ended since the Rockets had three other guards who were all on guaranteed contracts.

Luckily for Lin, the New York Knicks signed him as a free agent and New York is the best market for him since there are a lot of Asians living in New York, and the Knicks' fans have been searching for a hero after many dismal seasons.

Linsanity has arrived and it's here to stay weather people like it or not.

Jeremy Lin game winning 3 pointer live from the crowd's perspective

Here is a great video of Jeremy Lin's game winning 3 pointer against the Toronto Raptors last night from a fan's perspective inside the Rogers Centre. You hear the crowd anticipate something special is about to happen and then the crowd just goes wild when Lin hits that clutch 3 over Jose Calderon.

Moments like this is what makes going to a sporting event so special and exciting.

Kyle Williams and Kenny Williams interview before the NFL Draft

Here is a video of San Francisco 49ers' WR Kyle Williams being profiled and interviewed along with his dad, Kenny Williams. The older Williams is the Chicago White Sox general manager.

In the video, Kenny says that Kyle is cocky. Maybe it was his cockiness that caused the last fumble against the New York Giants as he tried to make a big play on the punt return and didn't protect the ball as well as he should have.

Video of Countdown to UFC 143

UFC 143 lacking in star power

UFC 143 takes place this Saturday night in Las Vegas at the Mandalay Bay. I was looking over the main card and was surprised by the lack of star power on this Super Bowl weekend show.

Fans might tune in to watch Nick Diaz vs. Carlos Condit but the other four fights on the main card leave a lot to be desired.

The weak co-main event is between Roy Nelson and Fabricio Werdum. I like Werdum but I have no interest in this fight. It is Werdum's first fight back in the UFC since he lost to Junior Dos Santos a few years ago but this match-up with Nelson didn't pique my interest.

The other three fights are Josh Koscheck vs. Mike Pierce, Renan Barao vs. Scott Jorgensen, and Ed Herman vs. Clifford Starks.

The mainstream MMA fan will not know any of these fighters except for Koscheck. Who are the rest of these guys that are supposed to entertain us at UFC 143?

Barao could be a star as the guy is on a huge winning streak and is a legitimiate contender in the bantamweight division.

Pierce is a wrestler who might be in over his head against the veteran Koscheck.

I don't think the Herman vs. Starks fight will be talked about or tweeted about on Twitter and it certainly won't be Fight of the Night.

The UFC has had too many shows lately and there seems to be an event every single week of the month. This is all fine and dandy if there were enough star fighters on the roster.

Unfortunately for the UFC, Tito Ortiz is on his last legs, and Chuck Liddell and Randy Couture have retired.

Even the prelim cards seem diluted now and filled with fighters you will never see or hear from again after a few fights in the UFC.

UFC President Dana White always says that the media and fans are "idiots" if they judge a card before the card happens but he is wrong about that.

It doesn't matter if Starks and Herman put on a good back-and-forth battle because most fans want to see their favorite fighters in the cage and not fighters that people don't care about or never heard of.

Fans won't pay for the pay-per-views or watch the shows if they don't know the fighters or care about them.

Why do people like to watch Chael Sonnen fight? Sonnen makes people care about him and they watch his fights not because he is the greatest fighter in the world, or the most entertaining,but because fans want to see him win or lose due to his crazy persona.

I still remember when Sonnen was just a regular fighter on the UFC roster who had no personality and didn't create controversy. He was boring and his fights were boring and hard to watch as well.

Once Sonnen opened his mouth and became controversial, fans started to notice him and now he is a full-fledged star.

The UFC needs more star power and UFC 143 is severely lacking in it.
