NBA’s G League has launched an investigation into Jeremy Lin racism allegations

from and from Larry Brown Sports….

The G League will look into allegations made by Jeremy Lin about anti-Asian racism he’s experienced during games.

Lin, who plays for the Santa Cruz Warriors, said in a Facebook post Friday that he has been called “coronavirus” on the court, citing it as an example of racism he has experienced despite his success.

According to Shams Charania, the G League is taking the allegation seriously and will conduct an investigation.

Lin has been open about being one of the few Asians in the NBA before, and has discussed the stereotypes that can come with that. Whether his story was intended to cause some reflection within the sport or not, it appears that it has at least opened the door for that.
