ain't it interesting how much media attention is lavished upon certain minorities who break through into the mainstream of certain sports (Tiger Woods, the Williams sisters), while other minorities are totally ignored (the Chinese fellow who recently became the first Asian to make it into the NBA, whose name I don't know because the media ignored it)?

Is it possible that:

1. He plays a team sport, not an individual sport like the references you mentioned?

2. He's a rookie, has yet to establish himself in the NBA?

3. He hasnt won a "major" like the references you listed?

If he breaks an NBA record of any type, wanna bet if he gets some media attention then? Me thinks it takes more than being a Chinaman starting in the NBA to achieve superstar coverage.

Nah. Couldnt be. He must be a victim too. <grin>
