Miami Heat coach Erik Spoelstra hopes Jeremy Lin known for play, not ethnicity

Race has little-to-nothing to do with how Jeremy Lin is perceived in the world right now in my estimation. He’s playing in the Mecca of basketball, on one of the most historic NBA franchises, he was undrafted and he has been cut by other teams.

That’s more of the story to me. Just because he’s Asian-American doesn’t mean much.

Miami Heat coach Erik Spoelstra is pointing to the fact that Lin has been unreal thus far.
