Magazine covers of Jeremy Lin, the NBA player who is making headlines from USA to the Asia Pacific.
The Taiwanese American led the resurgence of New York Knicks with series of fine plays in recent weeks.
Contrary to popular belief, he is not the first Asian American NBA player. That role belongs to Wataru Misaka [wiki] who played a few games for the Knicks in 1947-48. Misaka is also the first non Caucasian player in the NBA, known as the Basketball Association of America (BAA) back then.
To be frank, Jeremy plays well but I wonder if he would make as many headlines if he is not Asian. Nothing wrong with that though, people love stereotype breakers and he does perform well. Hope that he can continue his good form and show that he is a real deal and not a fad.

Chinese music video of Everyone Who Loves Me by Taiwanese singer Selina Jen of pop group S.H.E. The song was released a few days prior to her wedding on October 31 – as a thank you message to people who supported her all this while.
The 30-year-old Taiwanese star is still recovering from severe burn injuries from a filming mishap a year ago. The wedding was delayed for half a year, but thankfully she’s doing well enough to walk down the aisle despite the postponement. Congrats.
