Jeremy Lin goes to the foul line after a hard foul from Kobe Bryant

A campaign that questions whether referees in the NBA are giving Jeremy Lin a fair shake is gaining momentum.
The Huffington Post is the latest to post a video produced by a fan of Jeremy Lin who goes by JAD 7534. The video shows the extremely hard fouls endured by the point guard in which referees have refused to even review as possible flagrant fouls.


The video has even drawn the attention of the NBA which so far has sided with the refs. League officials told the Huff Post all the fouls in the video were reviewed by the League and none were deemed flagrant

Some fans have gone as far as to say the refs are discriminating against Lin because he’s Asian American.

What do you think?

    RE: Jeremy Lin gets no respect from NBA referees: This is total BS. Those refs are fkd up and the offending players just keep on fouling on Lin cuz they know they can get away with it. Jeremy has become the NBA “whack-a-mole.” What the hell??

    RE: Jeremy Lin gets no respect from NBA referees: Demand NBA’s thorough investigation for foul play and assault! This is bad. Suspect racism!
