You know what Floyd Mayweather. Is how bad it was for -- we look forward -- Mayweather made more sense. He was half right. It is part of the story these Asian it's one of the reasons it's so big -- English but if the black I did this it would still be huge story. Would -- you are Rourke if a black idea. I don't care fruits you know carrier stop predicted this it's still a big story he scored more. Than anyone since the merger in the first -- in his first five starts. You know and and that includes Michael Jordan by the way and that includes magic Johnson and and that includes. Some great great players all time greats hall of famers of this guy from Harvard who's been cut was cut but I don't put this -- is. As I was following insanity on twit. Every run scored in double figures in in his starts. Before I -- -- games before this recent 46 that run but this. So much for that even if Herbert did this mean you you'd you'd think that he was would ascend to that thrown bingo -- a topic. This guy I was at the end of the bench this guy was just you know and wanted to do that and we're just that -- but if a black guy.

It's a big deal sure it's just not a big it is big deal because guess what would matter whether. They're not gauging the the the interest in China. 51. Maybe go to you know Purdue with a good Indiana it's it's a big deal is it is but China. That's a billion and have people right yes so clearly it matters that he's Asian.

This is Mayweather is quote Jeremy Lin is a good player but all the hype is because he's Asian. Players do what he does every night and don't get the same race.
