MSG displays Jeremy Lin fortune cookie image (Picture)
Here’s something MSG probably would like to take back. During Wednesday night’s broadcast of the Knicks’ 100-85 win over the Kings, the network displayed this unfortunate (get it?) image of Jeremy Lin‘s head over a fortune cookie. The image was initially reported as an MSG graphic, but MSG says the image was of a fan’s sign.
The Knicks are now 7-0 since Lin began playing significant minutes. In that time he’s averaged 24.4 points and 9.1 assists, posting a career high in assists (13) Wednesday. He has delivered constantly and revitalized New York’s season.
You would have figured after what’s already happened that MSG would be conscious about not crossing the racism line when it comes to Jeremy Lin. They used poor judgment by displaying the image.
